Polishing Omen Internals

There aren't a lot of things you can do to increase you're guns efficiency... but polishing the internals is a great way to reduce the friction inside the omen thereby increasing consistency and efficiency. It's also relatively cheap, you'll find you can do this for under 10 bucks. I tested it out yesterday, and I was able to lower my recock pressure beyond the usual level. This transcended into a little less kick as well.

Just follow the directions at otters... here's the link.

The only difference is that instead of using 3 grades of sandpaper, I only used 800 and 1000... Also since the omen's hammer is 2 parts make sure you get both parts, including the cylinder inside. The gun is now firing even smoother than before.

Hey huge, it seems to me that every time I oil the hammer, the oil wares off quickly and I cant feel it kind of binding after like 1,500 shots. I was wondering if I could use maybe lithum greese or dow33 on the hammer and maybe if it would last longer than oil.

Also, about the polishing of the internals, how did u use sandpaper on the inner part of the hammer?

He Means on the out side of the Striker... I think.

But I think your talking about the Inside of the Bolt carrier.

The Outer part is the Bolt Carrier and the Inner is the striker.

Thanks for the terminology spart. I didn't sand the inside of the bolt carrier, but I did polish it very well. I only lightly sanded the outside of the bolt carrier and the entire striker. And yah my reference above to the cylinder was strictly about the outside of the striker.

Evil pus? That conjures up some nasty images, but i'm sure it'll be a fine product. I currently use dow55, but I'll pick a tube of pus when it comes out.
