Is the empire axe worth the extra 100 or is the invert mini fine for an intermediate player

The axe is most definitely worth the extra 100. The mini will work, but i would get the axe for $100 more. The axe has a better shot, way better trigger, better everything and it comes with the on/off asa which would usually cost money.

Well it depends. If you ever intend to upgrade the mini, you'll want to get the Axe. Definitely worth the extra 100 unless you are on a tight ass budget.

yes the axe may be better for the ergos if you like them but the gun it self is pretty much the same. its opinion, apparently its better to some people which is respectable but its not $100 better.

you can find really good condition used Axe's for the same price as a new Mini...

The biggest thing I noticed between the two is the Axe is a bit longer, and the trigger feels much much better.

if you like big guns then get the axe, but if you dont then save up some more money and get an etek 3 or 4 or save money and get an etha.

I would totally recommend the axe, along with it I would also recommend a barrel upgrade.

The barrel upgrade isn't neccessary, although i would upgrade it as soon as i got it because 12 inches is a little too short for me.

I loooooooooooooooove mine

And before anyone gets on this "oh it's because he got it for free" bullshit, I have never been given a free Axe from Empire, and they don't even sell the one I currently use. I had to BUY IT from ANSGear, and I was the only one using a PDD at World Cup

I'm getting a new axe an I definitely think it is worth it. From what I hear it is an all around solid marker.

The main reason I dislike the axe is that I think it looks ugly...to each their own though. I know tons of people who swear by them.

I have both and I don't think its worth the $100+ over a Mini. It feels like just like mini but in a Fat Suit.

If you had a Mini, roll with it and save your money to get a used Ego10-11, Geo 2, DM9-12, Luxe 1, Clone VX, etc....
