Upgrades:

Strengths: It makes a good blender, good for throwing at people
Weaknesses: Chops everthing, crappy design, cam feed sucks, 75% dont work right out of box.
Review: My team was sponsored by evil so we got a sweet deal on a package of crap including the omen. Little did we kno we were about to receiver the worst gun on earth. Now the reason this gun sucks so very very bad is not cuz its constantly broken, its cuz it will pretend to work right before a tourney and then once u start playing it has a tendency to..... not work. It chops paint, the settings change themselves from vibrations. The kick on this gun is like shooting a 12 guage shotgun, its also as loud. Our whole team had to send our guns in to pmi and we have all already sold them all. The reg literally exploded on one of my backmans gun. This gun not only sux, but statistically, u have a 43% chance of dying when using the omen. If the point didnt get across to u yet, here is a reivew from a local field owner:


Ummm, where to start with this one.....

well for one, look at it. It doesn't look like a respectable paintball gun. I don't know what PMI was doin' with the "snake" like trigger. I'm sorry but that trigger is VERY uncomfortable, and it doesn't ripp at all. Next, look at the mongle high rise, man you could climb to the moon and back on that beast. The pipe kit is the only semi respectable thing on the gun. The slogan for the pipe is, 'Everyone takes a hit"....this proves that they are one crack.....which I'll get to later.

Although they sound like a semi automatic pistol shooting (loud) and the are paper thing, so that when you dive into a bunker they turn into the flatline style barrel, they do shoot semi straight.

The reg they come with stock has the same consistency as a gas though grip, and has occasional tendency's to make the gun not work. As PMI calls it, the detonator sux monkey ballz.

The flipper....known to many who have shot the omen....AKA the "BLENDER"... I don't know if the PMI staff was smokin' crack or some kind of drug, b/c you can't even use a hopper that feeds more than 13bps or it will not flip fast enough and it will chop paint. The PMI staff must have thought that this flipper would serve a better purpose than any kind of eye system.... since the omen does not have any eye.

The grips suck....period.

Those were all the things wrong with the gun from just lookin' at it.

Now for Just some of the horrible things wrong with the performance of this "marker". The back blocks come from the factory too small so that they fling off the cockin' rod and smack you in the face. Then you will have to send it in to get re-milled , and that will take about 3-4 weeks and by that time you will have bought a new gun and thrown the omen in the trash.

I would buy a quality squeege (not a PMI one), b/c you will be choppin' SOOO much paint. This is due to the flipper, and the no eyes. Although PMI lovers will just tell you that you must have just gotten a bad one, the reality is that all omens suck.

So don't be fooled kidz, this contraption is not cool. It is not suitable for playing paintball with, it is more suitable for sitting on the work bench getting fixed.... the Evil Omen is one more reason that PMI sux.
Conclusion: Now seriously, this gun has caused me so much pain and grief i wish i could destroy each and every one ever made. Now apparently.... according to some ppl, if u get one of the few properly made omens in existence, it at least functions at the same level of a spyder. if i could i really swear to god, would give this gun a 0.

Oh yeah and if u omen lovers think i just didnt read the manual or take proper care of my gun, i sent my gun to 3 proshops, who sold omens, and not a single one had any idea wat was wrong with my gun. in fact all 3 proshop owners, the same ones who sold omens, suggested i just buy a new gun.

You are so stupid it is not even funny. Please shut up and grow a brain befor writing a bad review on a good gun.
   

Se1Fer Friday, January 28th, 2005 | 7:22 pm PST
Maybe the Professional shops you went to found nothing wrong with your omen...cuz there was nothing wrong with it.....haha lmfao noob. And 1 more thing they prolly told u 2 buy a new gun becuase YOU wouldnt stop coming to their shop saying "my omen this my omen that".

u poor, poor, omen luvers, its a terrible gun for the price. Thats the final statement. And yes,i can read. As clearly stated in the review, even a exhuastive study of the manual, led to no solutions for my omen problems. As for the above comment, there is no spelling error in his quote.
   

captaincodeblue Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005 | 6:17 pm PST
BTW, im using a bob long alias now, see what good things happen wen u throw away ur omen?
   

lw281 Friday, February 25th, 2005 | 2:53 pm PST
I agree with captaincodeblue- omens suck a$$, and Se1Fer, you should probably go get your head checked out- you've obdviously taken too many shots to the top of the head.

Its not a terrible gun for the price you moron, you have to tune it..

i would rather use a omen with 1.5 board and 1.5 cam arms than a timmy, timmys are way to freaking delicate
