might be getting a great deal on a mini for 200! But i see a wide variety of other markers that i could buy. Keep in mind i could spend up to 300. But thats one reason the mini is a plus for me since i wouldnt have to blow 300 at once, id still have another 100 to play with....So im wondering should i go for it or something else like i saw a 2010 matrix rail on here for around the same price and some eteks and what not but idk. What do you guys think, please be unbiased as i see a lot of people just try and promote a marker they happen to be selling at that time...thanks for reading!

a mini for $200 isn't a great deal, I would take a protege or legend over it.

im not a huge "older marker" kinda guy, as i kno little on how to deal with a problem that might arise, even if it was an oring, id probably just stare at it whhile it was leaking and hit it with a mallet...

the mini was around at the same time as the protege, as for the legend I doubt you would ever have a problem with it.

The Mini is also more maintenance intensive than the Protege IMO.

I would go straight for the GOG Excty. My friend has one and can compete with my axe in lots of ways. You can also get one new for about $225
Doesn't matter what gun you have, how old you are, what paint you shoot, who your up against, how bad of a day you had... All that matters is that your playing paintball now.

you could go extcy but the ones ive seen at my field have always been problematic which is why i prefer pmrs over extcys and minis.

Factoring in what you said above, id suggest to get for yourself a gun within your budget that has good CS, coz whether low or high end, there will come a time that your gun might eventually have some sort of issue, and a brand with good CS will be a big help for you.
