Right now i have a mini. I love it. I am playing in a tournament in december and was wondering what should i get or do. I can either upp my mini or get another gun. Im looking at the axe, but open up to ideas.

So tell me what you think. If i upgrade my mini, what upgrades should i get. Or twll me what gun i should get. I could add around $100-200

Upgrade to an axe, I used to have a few minis. Axes are just plain superior, I will skip the details since there is so much

The Axe is almost internally identical to the Mini except for its larger dump chamber, and the toolless bolt assembly. Other than that the Axe is slightly larger, has a better trigger, and an on/off asa.

 

Its pretty much up to you to decide which is worth it to you.

If you are looking between upgrading the Mini and the Axe? Go with the Axe. 

However, I'd recommend you look at older high ends used or lightly used Mid Ends, like the MacDev line, older Ego's, older DM's..

I would get the axe. I also own a mini too bit I'm upgrading an axe in November. Also look into upping other things like your hopper if you have don't already have something like a rotor or a z2 or a spire. Ivealso heardgood things about the proto reflex rail


If your under 18 and pay for your own gear put this in your sig

I don't want to jump in but honestly what is difference besides size dump chamber and the spring on the poppit of the axe and a v3 mini? I want an axe but held a mini and the size wasn't a problem for me

Bigger dump chamber, The on\off asa, upper trasfer tube, frontgrip ergonomics, quick release bolt system, Trigger and microswitch , longer grip frame.all other parts are mostly the same .

Personally i prefer my upgraded mini over the slightly upped axe , The axe is not that much smoother and i am not sold on the axe trigger.

A upgraded mini is not worth it it though as the trigger and relay alone cost a extra 110$ .
However my upgraded mini with a cp trigger,relay,better board and some other preference things like virtue eyes, bolt and feedneck feels better to me . They are both great shooting poppets .

If you Love your mini you may think about it , but i dont reccomend it.
