stock, omen. Better barrel and reg, less choppage, less kick.

Upgraded, bko (if you wanna waste your time)

What to get, niether. Save a little more and get a real gun like a used imp with ups, used ecocker or angel or maybe a trix ot timmy. You can find good deals on them all.

Thats a pretty different price range. Omens are 450 and bkos are 300. Save up $50 more from the omen and get a B2k4 w/pds or vision impulse.

I agree with Chinese, I'm not a big fan of the BKO or Omen.

Not really, a used angel lcd is easily between $400 and $500, same with basic used ecockers, imps with fairly good ups, and trixes are just a little more. All are better than b2k4's IMO. Oh, and omens have come down to around $350 now.

You people really need to get out and try an omen out before saying these things. Not that I really think the Omen is all that great, but it makes me sick that there's probably only a couple people on this particular forum who've even seen an omen, let alone shot it, yet everyone thinks they're an expert. The omen is very smooth shooting for a blowback, just like the bko has a lot of kick for a real electro. They are pretty close, I think the omen feels a bit nicer because the cycling of the back block and bolt counters the hammer fairly well.

I agree with MA_Paintballer, if its an option, go with the b2k4 pds. I got it not too long ago, and its the best gun i've ever shot.(I've shot cockers, other bushys, and the omen, and this by far the best.But if you must have one of the two, id say omen.

Well, if you have to choose between them 2 specific guns, I myself would go with the BKO. Not that i dont like the omen, it is just a matter of out of the box performance versus upgradability and price. The Stock BKO's #1 problem is its vertical reg, But the rest of the gun including the reg can be upgraded. The omen stock is a good gun but if you want to upgrade it, all you can do is buy a barrel, feedneck, and a PDP chip(18 bps). But like some of the others said you can pick up a used gun that can outperform both of these with ease.

05 BKO's come out in 3 months. There are rumors going around that it will use a 4 way noid, and possblly PDs as a option.

Why don't you wait. 04's will be cheaper, and the 05's will be out.

I believe you are right about the PDS. It is coming stock on the BKO '05. However, the 4-way solenoid version you are talking about is a special version that is being made by shootpaint. If the new stock BKO had a 4-way noid and PDS for only $350 I doubt many people would buy a B2K5 for $150 more.

omens are about 330 now. and that is pointless. a BKO with a 4 way noid is a b2k. the only problem with that, is then you need a b2k ram assembly to replace the spring return one on the BKO. so it would probably cost just as much as a b25 anyways.

The thing is, I have shot both, and the BKO does feel smoother...a lot smoother actually.

No 4-way solenoid in a 05 BKO, but it does have stock PDS. I would take a BKO over an Omen, but I'd save up more and get a better gun like Chinese and CoolT said.

Omen for $289
