Third on the Axe, i've held my friends mini and while it is a great marker and there is nothing wrong with it, the Axe is just a more solid and smooth marker and well worth the price because if you own the mini for a while you will spend about as much on upgrades as the price difference(On/Off, Trigger, Feedneck, ect).

Hmm.....well, if you can save another $50 - $100, how about a Dangerous Power G4? I had one of the original G3's when they came out, and it was a hell of a shooter for the price. The G4 improved on everything, and it's so simple to work on that it's almost stupid. No o-rings on the bolt, either. In fact, I'm pretty sure it has no moving o-rings whatsoever. They run about $290 - $300 depending on where you go, and you can probably pick one up cheaper used.

I see them all the time at the field I frequent, and everyone that has one loves it. They have a bit of kick, but I'll be damned if they don't work great. I would take one of them over the mini any time. Same price point, but the G4 feels nicer in the hands to me.

Otherwise, as Seymour said, if you can find an old Ego/Etek around that price, I would jump on it. Egos have always been great guns, and there's no shortage of stuff available for them. I don't know how far back Eclipse goes with gun servicing though, so you may be on your own if something goes awry.

This. I got my 06 Ego of eBay for $270 shipped. Wonderful gun. I'd also look at ETek3s and Minis.

I just sold my Mini to a buddy so I could get a Sniper. I have nothing bad to say about it. Simple, light, compact and shoots beautifully stock, if you get a 3rd Gen Mini.

Get an older gun as it will save you a TON of money and you'll still get performance that is the same as a new gun (essentially). Old Angels, Shockers, etc can be really cheap.

A mini would be awesome to get back in. If not, the Axe is everything the mini needed (not much IMO).

I was a fan of my mini :]
