Review: Entering into the Mid-End gun world.
There were many choices: B2k4 PDS, ION, Impulse, Omen, Prostock, Wrath, ect.
I really had to look at them and all the benefits.
Being somewhat new to these, i knew i would want one that isn't too hard to maintain.
Autocockers need to be timed, eyes can have problems.
I looked up them all, i found the Omen had "cam arms" that didn't break paint. I also found it to be a simple design similar to my previous guns.
After that, I started reading more on the Omen. A lot of people told me "They suck." And "Don't get them," even my local shop. After examining this, i found out that there have been 3 types of omens. 1.0 1.5 and 2.0. The 1.0 is the version that had those problems. The 1.5 had new cam arms and a new board. The 2.0 had those and better stock parts.
I saw a few Omen videos, and they shot really good.
Then i got one. I had really debated: Omen VS Ion. However, I believe the Omen was the better choice for me.
Upon receiving my gun, i immediately read the manual. (I had already read it many times before online) I learned all about the gun and how it worked. However, i did forget to cock it back when I aired it up, and i broke my cupseal. Evil sent me a free one in 3 days, without me sending them anything.
I was learning how to adjust it. I didn't set the recock right, and I'd have to recock after every shot. I also had put the BPS 1 too high, causing it to reset to 5 bps MAXIMUM. I honestly did not like my new gun at that point. I believe many people might feel this way at first. However, i set my bps to around 20, and its fine. No, i cannot shoot 20bps, but i can hit around 14. I also adjusted the air pressure and recock, which it turned out were VERY easy to do. I started shooting perfectly straight, consistent, and very fast.
It turned out that it wasn't a bad gun, I was just a bad gun owner.
Now, my Omen shoots better than any other Mid-End gun that I have shot.
I highly recommend it.
Conclusion: The Omen is by far the best Mid-End gun for the money in my opinion.
It is not difficult to maintain, and its very durable/reliable. Just remember to read the manual. (It's also on Evil's Website if you don't have one)
It can shoot as fast as i can pull the trigger, and shoots very consistent and accurate. The stock barrel is great. So are the other stock parts, such as the Detonator and the On/Off.
Overall, this is a great gun that you should definitely try out.
I highly recommend it.
