Question gun decision: ion vs. omen 2 vs. ?

ok this decision is starting to bug me. a few days ago i thought i had decided on teh ion until i looked into teh promaster and then i though i decided on that until i figured out it would be out of my price range and i did some looking and i like the evil omen alot. how does it compare to the ion? this is like my third post trying to decide so i apologize but i need to get this resolved. i suppose ill take reccomendations on guns but NOTHING above 350 and w/e i get will stay stock except for maybe the barrel becuz i am horibble and gun mechanics

Regular b2k4 PDS (basically not much difference from a promaster)


B2k4 PDS *239*
CP HPR Reg *40*
CP Barrel *$$?*
ASA NDZ on/off*40*

N2 Tank 60-200$ depending.

You'll be spending about the same both ways..

Omens are little more than spyders with backblocks. After seeing your situation in the other thread, the Ion remains your best choice

Probably tired of hearing this but Ion, and for the record A promaster owns the b2k4.

Omens are basically spiders, but with backblocks. Meaning the complexity of an Autococker, but without the effeciency.

omen is definatly what i would suggest. And if u want more features for the board. For 50-60 bucks in jan. or feb. you can buy the T-board for it.

Clamping low rise feedneck, and good to go. Although a pipe kit is always a good addition

Or just buy my pimp setup

The only reasons people like the omen is because it comes with everything stock. Except maybe a feedneck and later a new board. Now why people say the omen sucks is because it is a blowback or a closed bolt blowback and most people dont like having parts flying at you. It dosent have ramping, but in early January the T-board comes out. People also dont like the cam arm feed. It wont chop unless you have the recock pressure too high. Result in having the cam arm feed it makes it unbalanced(really it dosent maybe a little bit)I like it to the side because you can aim down the barrel. Plus they arent very customizalbe(sorry about my spelling) I have an omen 2.0 I love(maybe because I got it for 220 nib) it. I was going to get an ion. Ion's are great guns but, out of the box I would get an omen. I no you guys are going to yell at me for saying that but,I think it is. Ok now what changed my mind about not getting an Ion. When I was going to get an Ion I was going to put these ups on it.ION(240) Hybrid asa w/push on/off(40), Lucky stage 1,2,3(90),ASP QEV(20),CP regulator(60),ND feedneck(35),scythe trigger(40),T-board(50),Stiffi barrel(85),Dye sticky grips(25),Kila Products Ion Reaction Magnetic Ball Detent(20),stilleto drop(35). Total that is 740. So I decided for that price I could get an 05 timmy on actionvillage for almost 100 bucks cheaper . So there you have it. Hope it was useful.

i honestly don't get why people are making a big deal out of omens being blowbacks. does the omen being a blow back make it shoot less accurate or something? omens being blowbacks is not a big deal.
