Hey guys ive got a local offer to buy an all black mini with a eigenbolt and he says it works. I will obviously make sure before i make a deal with him but is the mini the same(mostly) internally? I saw that the eigenbolts are the same so i figured they must be close? What's different? Thanks for the help!

Internally there aren't many noticeable differences between the two, if you like the ergos, it's a good price, and you can live with the trigger, go for it.

An Axe is way better.


The trigger is not bad like a mini's.

No, the mini has a bad trigger no matter what. It's because it's a hall effect sensor, not a microswitch, so it will always be bad. I would know, I own one.

*mounts a microswitch just for feel* Gotta admit the trigger still feels spongy after using a VP scythe with strongest magnet


If the mini shoots its fine, if a part wears then contact kee. I'm so tempted to pick up another v1 mini with ndz on/off and dye gun bag for $125-140 but do I?

Personally, I have had a v1, v2, now a v3 mini on top of getting an axe last week. I don't see the problem everyone else is having with the triggers. My minis have been absolutely ripped on, sure it has a little bit of play in it but you're not buying a $1200 marker so don't be too nit picky when it has a sub par trigger.

Just throwing it out there that I have never paid more ham $100 for a mini of any version, might be the reason I don't have a problem with them.

Personally, its a easily maintainable tube that pushes "water balloons" at 300 fps with an amazing customer service backing it if you ever need them.

I say the mini. They are pretty much the same thing anyway. The Empire version is like 400$ more than the mini.

Axe, For one main reason. Ergo's, the ergo's on the axe and mini are already.... bad. The mini's however are just plain shit! I liked the v3 I saw till i held it in the hands and felt the trigger.

Although i normally use my pump I own a mini and frankly the ergo is very particular to your taste, i love the way it feels. And for the trigger, yeah its sloppy but i can still shoot quite fast when needed, (I don't shoot fast very much though, love pump play too much).
