Couple of Qs about the V1 Mini

Getting a V1 Mini for a fairly cheap price this Friday. Seeing as how V1's had a fair share of issues, should I proactively change parts in the V1? The current owner says it works great, but still. What should I change or upgrade?

Also, on the cosmetic side, I've seen a few Minis with wood grips. Where can I get wood grips for the Mini? Is there someone on the forums that makes them or is there a company that makes them?

The "Must Change" item is the poppet. Get the newest version.

The Relay on/off ASA Regulator is a wonderful upgrade and will replace the V1 gauge that makes finite adjustments difficult.

The Poppet was key. After that the Relay On/Off Rail is nice and convenient but you will be better off investing in a better barrel, the stock barrel is not the most accurate.

Oui ša va bien! I see we're local. Have we ever met? I usually play at Tactik.

I got the Mini last week and played with it a bit in the back yard. It rips!

Hook,

On joue ensemble dans la ligue. J'ai un mini et un Phantom.

Nice find, was that local. Got a blue one couple weeks ago for 80$ but was missing solenoid.

I order stuff from here,

https://firstcallpaintball.com/default.aspx

they ship to us up north via USPS in bubble padded envelop for minimal price...

Cheers and go get your membership before Feb 28 for all the perks.
