Empire Invert Mini Paintball Gun Review

If you are considering buying a new Invert Mini paintball gun, the marker created by Empire, here is a useful video review.

The Invert Mini is the first paintball gun created by Empire. In short, the Empire Invert Mini is a good marker, but it is a bit quirky, probably because it takes a few years for a paintball manufacturer like Empire to perfect the model.

I love the reviews by Mike from Tech PB. He explains in simple terms what he likes and dislikes about the Invert Mini, how the Invert Mini compares to other paintball guns, and tips for Invert Mini owners.

Here is a video showing the Invert Mini in use.

The Invert Mini has a number of nice features:

I am a huge fan of paintballing and the MINI series. I got my first mini gun at dpxpaint.com at an amazing price!, and i have been a huge fan ever since. My favorite feature is probably that is has no hoses. Those always got in my way and irritated. of course there ae some flaws with this gun, but overall, it truly is great!

Not a bad marker but I generally avoid V1.0 of any new product and wait for later versions that have the bugs worked out and added improvements.

i love this gun


I purchased a V2.0, loved the gun and it leaked all the time, losing air between rounds. I bought at a Scheels and they directed me to the manufacturer. I bought my halo hopper, magna drive board, tadeo board, empire double pane mask and to carbon 68ci tanks from a local dealer. He took a V3.0 Mini and swapped out a spring and a smaller brass piece which accepts the spring addendum at free of charge, now I can play all day on one tank rather than running out with two. It pays you back to shop at one place, hope this helps someone out.
