RoboCop

Omen 2.0

Well, I have been itching for something new and fast. Also, I don't want to spend a fortune on a gun. I was looking at the Omen because it is relatively low in price and seems to be a good deal for $300 and i have wanted it since it came out. The only downside of it would be that there are no eyes. I would like some opinions of how good this gun is and some answers to my questions.

It is an electro pneumatic, right?

Will the offset feedneck, really effect anything? I have a Halo that feeds perfectly fine and I don't really think I will be going over 18 bps if I can even reach that high.

Have any of you handled one, shot one? Was it loud/have a terrible kick like a tippmann?


Thanks for the help.
Crazym

they never work. period! if they do work they RIP but....i never seen one work ever and i've seen a few.
RoboCop

Well, in order for it to work, you have to tune it perfectly. I think someone on my team has one and I will have to ask how it is.

Also, another team member might have a custom mag for sale. I think it is $400 for it. He has put over $800 into it, but he says it is a gas hog and you need a huge tank to get 1000 shots.

they are true pieces of crap. don't get one. if you do, good luck getting it to work
RoboCop

Has anyone else seen one in action?
redneckdeerhunter

I have, they suck. Don't waste your money.
RoboCop

Well, I guess the Omen is out. Maybe I will save to get the Pimp, but by the time I get that much money, I will want to go for the minion and by that time I will be lookin at the minion or posibly saving up more for the G7 Fly.

I would probably control myself and just get the Pimp. I emailed my team mate and he hasn't responded about the mag. He said it is upped so much that it rips and very easy to walk with the ULT. Hopefully he has dropped the offer down.
RoboCop

Well, he sold the mag and went and bought the Joy Division G7. I tried to tell him about the g7 fly but at first he was set on having the g7 Arsenal. Once he found out that it didn't come with 90* frame, he ditched that idea. He said I should look into the Ion. He wanted me to try my teammates Ion and see how I like it, but I don't want an Ion. So, it looks like I am left to going with the Pimp.
redneckdeerhunter

Going with the Pimp was a good idea. They are great guns in my opinion.
sinisterNorth

Saw an Omen in a 3 man tourney last week, but it didnt look too good. Seemed like teh kid was chopping a lot.

The Pimp is a great gun. I got to shoot on e awhile back and i loved it. If I were getting into speedball, I'd look into an Ion or pimp.
cdacda13

Pimp, ehh.

Evil guns in general, ehh.

My friend has a pimp. Nice gun, when it works. Not incredibly fast, does chop, and it feels weird as hell in my hands. (small trigger frame not good for big hands.)
RoboCop

Well, I am not looking for an Ion, and a Pimp wouldn't cost me a whole lot. It is something that would help me in speedball games and is a whole lot better than a Tippmann. I am also going with the Evil theme. The only other choices in my price range are the Nerve or Impulse. In that case I would be leaning toward the Nerve.

Which would be the best between a Nerve, Impulse, and a Pimp?

Promaster
redneckdeerhunter

Promasters are great guns, a buddy of mine has one and its really really good. http://www.icdpaintball.com/icd05/marker_promaster.asp Go there and click on "New Video Footage" and it shows a couple vids of someone shooting one. Its amazingly fast.
RoboCop

I think y'all have swayed my decision again. The Promaster might be my choice. I will also be able to afford it sooner. Actionvillage doesn't show an ASA, does that mean i have to buy one and some macro? I will need a new feedneck also, it is too high, what are its threads for the feedneck and which no rise feedneck should I get? I was looking at HPA tanks and Actionvillage is always out of Crossfire 68/4500. I was thinking of going to an Evil Scion 68/5000. Would that be a nay or yay because if I can fill that high, it would be good because I don't have a nearby store or field to fill at.
redneckdeerhunter

Yes you will need to buy an asa again, but that would only be $50, but thats for a rail and a ASA. The macro lines are cheap, like $5 for 3 of them. I'm not sure about the feed neck but it wouldn't be that much of a problem, unless it really bothers you. The Evil tank is very good, its really light too. Your field would be able to fill it up.

Edit: You could also get a drop which is cheaper, any where from $10-30.
RoboCop

so you are saying, instead of a rail, get a drop? I might get the drop/uni mount.
RoboCop

Well, this is going to be my setup at first.


Indian Creek Designs ProMaster Paintball Gun - Black $ 369.50

AVI Macroline High Pressure Hose Kit - 1 Foot - Black $ 9.99

Trinity Universal Mount w/On/Off and Screws Drop Forward - Black
$ 54.95


Is there anything else I should get before I order it? I still need a HPA tank. I also saw a CP twist lock feedneck.
http://www.actionvillage.com/is-b...oductID=oW_AqArblZwAAAEDo27O1VvQ#
Would that be a good choice for a feedneck?
abr5

you should get a cp direct mount on/off
RoboCop

I probably will considering the rating for it was higher and it is CP so I know I am getting good quality. Thanks for the suggestion.
redneckdeerhunter

What kind of hopper do you have?
RoboCop

Halo B. I plan on getting victory board sometime soon. I just haven't had the need to yet.
RoboCop

I don't know, but I might be going against myself and getting an Ion.
Here is the setup so far.

Smart Parts Ion Paintball Gun - Black $ 199.95

Custom Products Grip Regulator - Short w/Gauge Port Paintball Foregrip - Black $ 64.99

Custom Products Direct Mount On/Off ASA - Black $ 49.99

New Designz Ion Aluminum Roller Blade Trigger - Black $ 32.95

AVI Macroline High Pressure Hose Kit - 1 Foot - Black $ 9.99

Dye Mini Gauge 750psi $ 13.95

CCM Impulse / 03 Shocker Heli Clamp No Rise Feed Neck - Black / Black $ 29.95

Grand Total: $401.77 w/o shipping charges.

Is that a good setup? I still need a new barrel, but I think I can stick with the stock for now.

I am going for the Ion because Justice told me he has been having problems with his promaster and the noid has gone out 3 times. It might just be his gun, but the Ion would be cheaper and would have great upgrades on it.
redneckdeerhunter

Get a barrel before you get any of that other stuff. And the ion comes with a macroline, so you don't need to get one.
RoboCop

Well, I thought I would get macroline because i would be getting a new asa and reg.
redneckdeerhunter

The original macrolina will fit it. It comes long as hell out of the box, you are going to need to trim a bit off.
Crazym

Forget the gauge and save money. the gauge on the ion is connected to the Frame asa not the regulator.
RoboCop

Will they cp reg come with a cap over the guage hole. That is my main reason for getting it. If it does have one, I would ditch getting the guage.


Also, which would be better for holding a Halo.

or

redneckdeerhunter

The second one would be better, but be careful with the clamping feednecks, I broke my halo's neck in my ion with the T-Lock feedneck.
RoboCop

Well, I have almost been swayed to get a DM3/matrix instead of an Ion. Is this a good choice? The Matrix is bigger than an Ion and that is the main reason I was wanting a new gun. I wanted something smaller and lighter than a Tippmann but that is faster. Would the bigness of a trix and its performance outweigh the smallness of an Ion?
RoboCop

I am also looking at Angel Speed 04's. Are those good choices?
abr5

dm3= monster
04 speed=blind, so if u get one, put eyes in it, also, these are bigger and heavier than an ion.

go for a shocker, or a quest if u want small. shockers can be had for like 400-500 for one with a few ups, so just save up, trust me on this one, it is better to save up than to just get a gun you will want to get rid of soon. i have been through 9 guns in the past 6-8 months, and i haven't been happy with any of em (cept my cocker)
Guest

ok

first of all if ur lookin at gettin a promaster there fast but if it ever breaks u will hate it cause u cant find any parts for them. plus if ur gettin a promaster u will have to get a new reg the one on there is horrible and yes u need a macroline.

the angel 04 is good but yes it is blind so u will need eyes angels r really heavy tho i dont like them cause there weight plus the trigger id weird i couldnt walk it very good

the ion is a good gun for cheap. as much as i hate them i still recomend them cause they just dont break and there cheap. the thing i dont like is that u need to puta bunch of mods in them to make them good. some people will disagree but they got there own opinions i got mine but anyway

dont get a shocker they arent that great just cause Dynasty uses them dont mean there good. all ikno is they break alot thats what ive heard from everyone who ive talked to thats had one. get an ion if u want somethin from smart parts only cause they dont break and there cheap like i said before

the dm3 is ok i guess ive never reallly seen to many people wit them prolly cause there old but they look huge so i dunno its ur choice

if i were u i would save ur money and buy somethin a little better like a bob long defiant 2 u can find them pretty cheap if u look hard enough. and there hella fast my friend has one and it rips. or u could save even more and get somethin really good like the etek ego by planet eclipse. thats what i shoot and its is awesome but they will put a dent in ur wallet cause there $750 but its worth it. i kno u gotta hate the tippy i had to do the same thing and i saved up and it was soooo worth it.

and thats all i got to say about that
abr5

pleease don't up old threads.


he has an ion btw
