I'm considering buying a semi-used Mirage from a good friend.  Any
suggestions?  What's the aftermarket like on this gun?  I heard that
smart parts is beginning to make parts for the Mirage.  Thanks ahead of
time.

I own one and I would definatly(sp?) recommend one.

The only aftermarket thing I have bought is a J&J brass barrel which I
would also recommend.  Other than that I haven't looked for
any other aftermarket parts.  If Smart Parts is making some things I
would be interested to find out.  

Any other questions?  Feel free to post and/or e-mail me.

In the same price range, I would have to vote for the Pro-Lite and Mirage
as kind of tied for first place.  I know a lot of you out there like the
Spyder, but I just can't stand a gun which completely jams up when you
break a pellet or two.
Now the Tippmann Pro-Lite probably has better warranty service from the
factory, but in durability/reliability on the field, I think the Mirage
has a very slight edge over the Pro-Lite.
I think both markers could be helped with a little better barrel, but when
it comes down to picking between the two, hold them both and pick the
one that feels more comfortable in your hands.
