I personally like the Pmr alot better. Because proto has been around and knows what there doing. Im not saying invert doesnt know what there doing, but its their first gun. It depends on how you like the gun to feel in your hands. I dont like the mini because my hands are a little to big for it.

Hope this helped.

Mini is nice, but it is just too small, I know it is supposed to be mini, excuse the pun. The optical boards seem to mess up quite frequently whereas the microswitches dont break as frequently unless you try to break it. For that price range, give the PMR SE a spin and it will work amazing...

Phantom beats all of them. I own a PMR, have shot the Mini (2 different ones) and G3 (Only once for about 3 minutes so not to familiar with them).

I gotta say I love my phantom. Less paint usage, more play time, makes me improve about 150% faster then using an electro... whats not to love.
There's two kinds of people in this world when you boil it all down. You got your talkers and you got your doers. Most people are just talkers, all they do is talk. But when it is all said and done, it's the doers that change this world. And when they do that, they change us, and that's why we never forget them. So which one are you? Do you just talk about it, or do you stand up and do something about it?

I would have to say mini because of the style of the gun and it is pretty easy to handle.

id have to say a diablo wrath or slayer... they are extreamly cheap for what you get out of the box. i have one, its good. but the pmrs and minis and the g3 ARE alot better, but they cost three times as much.
so yaa.. theres my two cents. xD

Ehh, I disagree. I have had 3 of those (2 Diablo wraths, fully upgraded, and one AR-1, which is a perfect clone). They all were in my hands less then 3 months. I Don't find them to be too good. The PMR is a SOLID marker if you take the time to care for it.

No way the fusion is a lot ahead of them all. The stock trigger on pmr's are horrible and the frames our plastic if I'm correct. With a fusion there is no needs for upgrades at all. The only thing that beats it is the size and weight of the mini but thats it. Plus you can usually find them a lot cheaper than the other two.

Definately my vote would go towards the mini because of tis's simplicity, and even if a part does break (except for the reg/ASA) the break is incredibly easy to locate and KEE's customer service is great. But compared to the PMR SE I would say they are pretty much even. I can not comment however on the new PMR 09

Hey, I would buy an 05 Ego for less than $300 so I have to agree with you there.

if u start talking about things like eteks you are starting a whole nother thing because for the price of an etek you are better off just spending a lil more or the same price and getting a protege which destroys an etek

Mini's shoot very good for the money, but are also extremely small. This is good for some players who have small hands or who are younger. But for the older players or players who have bigger hands, it gets to be a pain.

I for one think that the PMR beats it hands down just by how well it shoots. Now with the PMR2 coming out I bet that the gap in performance will be even better.

I love my PMR..but that's with the UL frame. If your looking at base guns i'd say Mini is better. But if your not afraid to put some extra juice into your PMR is can really rip!

Used a G3 once...didn't think it was 100+ dollars better than a PMR or Mini...but i only used it once so don't follow this as if it's the Ten Commandments.

Maybe a used Timmy or Ego. Other than that I would go for an F7. To many upgrades are needed for the pmr.

Don't own any of these guns but have played around with them in person, and I would say the pmr SE, 14in 2 peice with an okay trigger, better paintjob for 320. or the mini, 12 in barrel, kind of finiky, 325. but i was checking out the new SLG UL and that would be a gun to watch for sure just gotta see if proto does an oustanding job with the price like with the first SLG.

The G3 is the best gun in this price range if you are willing to spend a little more.

I would have to say the PMR takes the cake. You really can't beat it for the price. It may have a few plastic parts but it can still compete against any other gun.

I cant really say what 300 gun would be the best but in terms of later upgradeability I would say PMR. The PMR you can later put an ultralite and other goodies while some other guns you just have to use mostly stock.
