Thinking of buying a Mini

I talked to a buddy of mine about buying a Mini and he said "They're not worth it, they're retarded guns"...

I've used a Mini before that belonged to my cousins friend and his mini was stock and had a halo hopper and a 68 cubic in compressed air tank

I was thing about buying a Mini but i dont want my friend to call me a tool because i like a gun he doesnt. does anybody have an advice? or any recommendations about Mini's and what to use with them? because i'm thinkin Mini for a Christmas present to myself this year


thanks

the generation 1 minis were full of problems. Once they fixed those however, it turned into a nice marker.

theres plenty of better hoppers than the halos just depends on how much you want to spend, and if your talking about a 68/45 thats a great idea. as for a barrel, well theres lots of barrels that come in 14" size so saying "a 14" barrel" doesnt really tell us at all what your looking at. the stock barrel on the mini is pretty good though and i think it already is 14"

stock barrel is going to be better than a CP, CP is just a aluminum tube nothing special, and so is the stock barrel, wish i could remember exactly which one it was though. but putting a $30 barrel on a $350 marker (or whatever they are going for now) is gennerally a downgrade (unless its a milsim marker)

The mini is far from being a bad marker.
The only upgrades are maybe a new barrel, the stock one is pretty good but i'd get a new one.

i agree. Since its auto cocker it'll work with the other 85% of markers out there if you decide to get a back up or a different marker.

definately the way to go and if you like it enough try going with oed board replacement it's definately an upgrade that is worth it in the long run.
