I am looking to upgrade and I have found all three of these guns in my price range, around $200, and all of them look appealing.

Invert Mini v3, Dangerous Power G4 with Virtue O.L.E.D. board, or a PM8 stock - All in good condition.

So what do you all think, which is the best for a good mid range gun, between the three or maybe there's something better?

The PM8 kicks the shit out of either of those and you'd be an idiot to go with anything but that. The PM8 is a DM9 in disguise, buy it.

The PM8 is a supergun while the other two are not. The PM8 (as stated before) is basically a DM 9 with a few minor differences. The PM8 blows the other two markers out of the water and can be adjusted to be smooth as butter with the LPR ingeniously located below the grip frame. I also personally like the PM8 more than the DM9 and if you can get your hands on one in good condition you will be set.

Not in this comparison. G4 is shit without a techt bolt, so I wouldn't even consider it.

And even though I like the mini, it cannot compare to a PM8.

just for the sake of clarity, while the pm8 might be similar to a dm9, the DM9 will still shoot better due to internal milling inside the dm9.
the pm8 is probably the best PM made, but i'd still take a dm9 over it.

Considering the fact that a dm9 can be had for probably $50 more than a pm8, theres really no reason to ever buy a pm8 anymore unless you just like the looks.

Better isn't really the word, the PM8 just runs at a higher pressure, crappier shot but a little more efficiency. Granted the PM8 gets the shit end of the stick.

Personally, I like the pm8 more. The lpr is easier to get out, and I like the ergonomics more.

fair point. "smoother" would be a better way of putting it.
