Mini all the way. I've had a mini, bought it used for $200, and it worked like a charm. I used oil instead of lube, it still worked. I forgot to lube it a few times, still worked. Never had an o-ring break and I played almost every weekend for a year. It's basically a smaller AXE. And an Axe under $200 on eBay is a little sketchy. Minis are much more common in the sub $200 range and are basically an Axe without an on/off asa. I have big hands, and am 5 foot 11 in and I don't think its small. I like how compact it is so when I peek out a bunker I am tight and a smaller target. I don't find the grip annoying at all either, I like it in fact. The gun is very sturdy. I would stay away from Proto's. My two friends bought proto rails and they BOTH had MULTIPLE problems of o-rings breaking, asa unscrewing, o-rings popping off, and much more. Several times when we went paint balling they couldn't play because of an issue. Also, if your brother is smaller, stick with a poppet gun as it takes less maintenance.
