Review: When I first saw this I was thinking about getting another gun because I wasn't totally impressed with the Omen. I figured I'd buy it and it'd give me a higher resale value if I didn't like it.

Out of the box its nothing special. I started taking my grip off and found that that was easy. Next, I started on the pins. I had to get out a punch and a hammer, which I've never used before (the punch, I've used a hammer). Then I went and was suprised by how much force it took for each pin. Finally, I removed the stock chip with relative ease.

Now onto the insallation of the new chip. I put the new chip into place and started putting the pins back. Then I got to the trigger which was kind of hard. It took awhile to get the holes lined up. After that I noticed that the trigger wouldn't return. I figured out that the red wire was between the trigger and micro switch.( A word of advice, remember how it was wired and re-do that, it'll be a lot less of a hasle) I fixed that then went to put the battery in. It was really hard to get in and I'm not sure why.

When it was all done I turned it on and noticed the sweet trigger feel. It was like night and day from the old one. It used to be really clicky and kind of hard, but now it is really super light and smoother.

I just made the clicky noise and found that it was extremely fast. The fastest clicking in a gun I've ever heard. When I called up my friend with an E2 Orracle he was also amazed and said that it was faster than his. (This might be because the eyes were off and the E2 limits the bps) I have no idea how fast it was but it was maybe around 17 bps, and really easy to pull that fast.

I have yet to try it with air and paint but I will update this when I do.
Conclusion: This is the best upgrade for your Omen. If you want something to drastically improve your marker, this is it. For tourneys compete with the Dm5s, and for fun turn down the sensitivity to 1 and scare your friends. It exceeded my expectations 10 fold.
