The Official Evil Omen FAQ
I figured these are those most asked questions right now. There are lots of little things but they are not asked as often. When a question becomes asked more, I will add it.
The EviL Omen FAQ
Q: How do I adjust my new evil omen?
A: It should come ready to fire; you most likely will have to adjust the re-cock and velocity before you play. It should come from the factory already adjusted, but mine was not, and if the re-cock is set to high, your going to loose a bumper.
When you get your omen, here what I suggest you do:
Do not adjust the regulator, tighten it down were it is, and leave it. Read all of the instructions and locate the re-cock adjustment, look on the parts sheet and look for the re-cock screw that will give you the general location. IT IS NOT THE COCKING ROD...thatís what I first thought. It should be in the middle of the body, outside of were the valve is.
Gas your gun up, and turn the re-cock screw clockwise to tighten it up. Cock the gun and fire; it should NOT re-cock on its own. Keep backing the re-cock screw out till it can re-cock on its own and keep up with rapid fire. Go a little higher then you want after that, but no more then a quarter of a turn. This is called sweet spotting the re-cock pressure. You will have to do it every time you adjust the regulator. But if you want to be fast, just lower the re-cock every time you raise the regís pressure, and visa versa.
The regulators pressure output should be fine, but most-likly it will have to be adjusted. Adjust the re-cock all the way down again and turn the regís pressure up for more velocity and down for vise versa. Do single shots with the re-cock off to adjust the velocity, Every time you adjust the reg, shoot the gun 2 times to get the regs new set pressure. When you chronograph it with no re-cock, you want it to be 10 fps faster, because when you engage the re-cock it will bring the velocity down 10 fps.
I suggest using HPA when adjusting the gun....my got all frosty when making the gun "keep up" while adjusting the re-cock. At least use a remote or ant-siphon if you have one.
Q: How do I adjust the regulators pressure?
A: There is a ring located on the middle of the Regulator. This ring is held by a friction screw, to adjust the reg loosen the screw. Instead of bothering with the closewise method that always got people confused as to how to look and the gun and turn it which way.
While you are looking at your gun from the side that the recock screw is located, turn the ring left to decrease pressure, and turn the Ring Right to raise the pressureTighten the screw when itís adjusted properly. Simply remember lefty-Lower, righty-Raise
Q: How does the CAM feed work?
Think of it more as a two-stage seesaw with reeds.
The two reeds, which are spring loaded, sit to the right of the ball waiting to push it into the breech, but the bolt is closed holding a ball in the barrel.
When you pull the trigger, the inside striker goes forward, shoots the ball and starts the re-cock.
When the inner/outer striker comes back, it brings the bolt with it.
On the right side of the bolt are cutaways.
The first groove or cutaway on in the back has the reeds in the full right position.
As the bolt comes back, the cutaway in the bolt is less and the reeds start to move the waiting ball towards the breech.
As the bolt uncovers the feed, the cutaway in the bolt disappears and the reeds move fully to the left and push the ball into the breech.
The reed on the outside is a little wider and does not go fully into the side of the body and acts as a ball stop to keep another ball from falling into the ready position.
As the bolt goes forward, it pushes the ball into the barrel and the reeds go back to the far right and allow another ball to fall into place waiting for it's turn to chamberÖ
Q:Why is my gun not re-cocking, even with the recock adjust al the way out?
This can be cause by a couple of miss adjustments.
First check your Strikers bumper, if it is broke, teres the problem, this is cause by having the recock to high. If it's is not broken it is probally cause by over pressurizing the gun. When there is to much pressure behind the valve, the Omens striker is not able to open he cup seal enough to shoot or re-cock the gun. The regulators output must be with in a curtan range to work properly. Turn your regulator all the way down, and adjust your recock all the way in. Start from stratch and slowing bring your regulators pressure up till you velocity is 10 fps faster then you want it. Then start the re-cock sweet-spotting prosses.

oh crap. major typo there. good eye.
when does all of the new evil guns come out?
where is the new board available? what mods does it require?
Guys please, this is a FAQ not a place to ask your own questions. Thats what the fourm is for. Ask them there.
And to the Guy under me, Why did you post here? I do not car if you could not find it. Post a new thread asking the question then. But I know their has been a thread on that topic, so a search in this fourm.
Hey there, i was just wondering how do u adjust the trigger pull on the OMEN... sorry if it is posted but i could not find it and i just got the OMEN today for my birthday... help me if u can
Do Omens have any kick?
a tad, depending on how well your recock pressure is adjusted.
You guys may have allready posted it but I didnt see it so could you tell me how many BPS it does?
15 bps stock. i honestly dont think i put that on there...
Hey i noticed you said that there are several different types of omens, i knew there was the ones with the funky colors and a black one, how do i know if i have a new model or a classic omen? i ordered one off ebay the other day...
old ones have a smaller trigger gaurd and silver trigger, newer ones have a larger gaurd and silver trigger, and the newest ones have a larger gaurd, a black magnesium trigger, and a charge port cover. theres more but that's the easiest way to tell.
i'm guessing i have one of the two older ones, is it worth keeping?
what is the difference besides looks?
What is the bumper on the omen?
What is the bumper? what does it do? where is it on the gun? how much does one cost to replace? does it break easy?
Its the bumper behind the hammer. It will break if you have the recock set too high.
Where can i get an older model of an Omen?
So, where would i get an older model of an Evil Omen? And if i do get one, what is different about the older ones than the newer ones? Are there more defects on the older models?
