I'd take the G4, the only real annoyance with it is that it's an air hog.

Can't go wrong with either. Oh and, INB4extcyfanboys

It is basically a given that DPs guns all come with shitty fittings. If you got new fittings, and a L7 bolt, I would say G4, but stock, a V3 mini would be better in my opinion.

I'd pick up an eNVy instead

What I like the eNVy for
- 2 piece bolt
- Crisp trigger
- Long Regulator
- Smooth as f***
- No Barrel Rise
- Steel Braided Hose
- Easy to Fix Leaks
- No Bolt Stick
- Ergos are very nice

I can't bring down the G4 so much because I have only shot one but, it kicks a lot, it's loud, and the Feedneck won't hold a viewloader well.

The mini would be a better gun if it had a microswitch trigger, and a heavy barrel. Yes the mini should have a heavier barrel because it has a lot of barrel rise, Otherwise I just hate its trigger.

ID TOTALLY SAY eXTCy BUT I'VE NEVER OWNED ONE

Mini, I've seen a couple g4s go down at my field, 1 had bolt stick, and a couple were leaking.

Mini is much more reliable.

Just because they have a lot of posts doesn't mean he is paintball smart.

Majority of my marker problems have been user error, except the o-ring destroyed or macro leak every so often.

Minis aren't that bad. I wouldn't mind using one in PSP, solely because the trigger is garbage.

My advice: Buy used V3 Mini($200-$250) + CP or VP or Critical tigger preferably used($20?) + Critical 100G barrel 1 piece($30) + maybe a nano feedneck or lurker bolt if you care about that($30)

Perfect mini for price of a new one.

Since i cant speak for the eXTCy ill use the eNVy Blackheart

- Smoothness
eNVy, Mini, G4
- Trigger
G4, eNVy, Mini
- Board
eNVy, Mini, G4
- Weight
Mini, G4, eNVy
- Barrel Rise
eNVy, G4, Mini
- ASA
G4, eNVy, Mini
- Kick
G4, Mini, eNVy
- Quietness
Mini, eNVy, G4
- Customer Service
Mini, eNVy, G4
- Retail Price
eNVy, G4, Mini

I personally would not get the G4 like at all because of how many problems they are known to have from the box and their horrible customer service. Between the Mini and eNVy id pick the eNVy because i play semi 95% of the time and the trigger on the eNVy in my opinion is great for a long smooth trigger pull.

Both are good guns. The G4 is lighter and very easy to clean and service. The entire bolt assembly is one piece and has no springs, there is easy access to the eyes and detents. It has a stock clamping feedneck and lever ASA. The mini seems to be higher quality and more heavy duty, it also has a clamping feedneck (not as good), no on/off ASA, no easy access to the eyes. The bolt is more complicated and harder to clean/service. If you are thinking you want to upgrade, purchase the Mini, if you are going to use it stock and less often, purchase the G4.

My Markers:

Polished Silver CCM T2, Polished Black CCM T2, Dust Black CCM T2, Black Bob Long MVP, Dust Back Sanchez Machine SM-1, Polished Silver CCI Phantom, Dust Black Empire AXE.

I've seen way too many G4s go down to be able to recommend them.
Bolt stick issues, air leaks, crappy fittings, worn o-rings on brand new guns out of the box.... No way.

This is a great comparison - really about features verses quality. The G4 has a bevy of features including the flip ASA, clamping feed-neck, etc...The Mini on the other hand has a few less features, but the build quality and upgrades are better. If you are an occasional player, do not plan to upgrade or spend any more money on your marker, the G4 may be a good choice for you. On the other hand, if you are OK with a few less features, need the additional build quality and plan to upgrade as you develop your skills and taste, the Mini is a much better choice. The Mini is far more rugged, no leaky micro-lines, and a great bolt design. If this is your choice and overtime you do upgrades; bolt, barrel, board, eyes, feed-neck, when you want to take the next step, you can transfer most of them to an AXE.

My Markers:

Polished Silver CCM T2, Polished Black CCM T2, Dust Black CCM T2, Black Bob Long MVP, Dust Back Sanchez Machine SM-1, Polished Silver CCI Phantom, Dust Black Empire AXE.

No, just no. The envy trigger is probably the worst trigger I have ever used on a electro so far, I can't even walk the damn thing.
