Take a look at a completely different design. Experience no hoses, easy maintenance and a light setup. Inside the Mini you will find that all parts are organized for effortless servicing/cleaning. The board is located in the front grip giving quick access to change the battery or even for replacement of the board. The board is the "brain" of the mini - powered by a 9 Volt battery - it allows each player to configure their mini to their own personal needs, whether that be firing in semi-automatic or tricking it up to full auto. Changing the firing mode is only 1 out of the 5 functions the mini is capable of, but if you are just starting out and getting into paintball, the modes might be all that you want to tap into for now. Moving to the grips you will find a comfortable design that allows an easy grip for complete control while firing. Inside the grip is where your air transfer tube is located. What? Transfer what? Don't worry it's quite simple - Once you screw in the compressed air tank, the air begins to flow up the grips through the transfer tube - leading the air to the bolt making your gun ready to fire. DO NOT USE CO2 - this gun only operates on compressed air (any compressed air tank will work fine). Overall the gun is great for both starters and experienced players due to its simplicity in design.
What can I do to upgrade my Invert Mini?
What's great about the Mini is how customizable it can be. The barrel is Autococker threaded allowing for a more accurate design. The board, as mentioned earlier, has multiple configurations to play around with but once you start getting into the sport more you may want to be able to shoot faster, have more modes and get the newest technology with much more features - well it's 100% upgradeable, check out Virtue to learn about all the fun stuff your Mini is capable of doing. Bolts, Feednecks, Triggers and many other parts can all be replaced so don't ever worry about not being able to upgrade with the Invert Mini
Keeping the barrel clean will insure consistency in accuracy. Unscrew the barrel from the gun and give it a good rinse with hot water. You may also want to grab a Squeegee when you are on the go. It's recommended to take out the bolt before game time and give it a good wipe down to make sure no paint settles. Use some gun lube all around the o-rings to prevent cracks causing air leaks. That's it! The Mini only requires a minimal amount of maintenance
