Finally got to shoot the Omen today...

Well my n2 tank finally arrived today.

Got it filled and set my recock. After setting it so it recocked consistently, I put on my hopper and started shooting. After a few shots I got a break. In the barrel, that is. The only paint I had was about a month old and it was Zap, if that tells you anything; it was a little too big for the Omen stock barrel.

After about 20 or so balls, out of nowhere the o-ring on the end cap starts leaking.

So we (stryker20) replaced the o-ring and gassed it up again. Still leaked, but not as bad. Put a few drops of oil on it and it no longer leaked. Took it out back again and emptied another hopper, with a few more barrel breaks.

When I got down to around 1000psi it stopped recocking consistently. Every 5-10 shots it would stop. Is this normal, when it gets around 1000psi?

Other then that, i'm very happy with it. I'm definitely investing my next paycheck into a good barrel kit.

Also, what is the best way to adjust the recock so I get the least amount of kick? Should it be just above or below the point where it does NOT recock consistently?

Yeah man, that zap paint was crap, but... what do ya expect for month old field paint, and I dunno what was up with that o-ring, somehow the wrong size got put on at the factory I guess, I've never heard of an end cap on the omen leaking before... oh well, easy enough to fix, I just had to replace the o-ring with the right one and lube it

almost sound like the Regulator is set to high? have you cronoed it? for all you know the Reg is over pressurizing that thats what caused the Leak, also being a Gas hog. Get to a crono before you play!

actually i get barrel breaks to with premium paint, and i can honestly admit i like ZAP sure they sell it at walmart, but all the ZAP i have shot, shot = to or better then premium. I think the barrel breaks are the barrel its self the porting in mine is kinda sharp, feels a bit like a cheese grater when i stick my finger in it.

Spartan, that's definitely a possibility. I haven't chronoed it yet, but I know i turned it down quite low. We weren't even playing, I was just in my back yard shooting it.

I don't think ZAP is that bad, it was a perfect barrel match when I used my Bigshot on my 98c. Then again it has been sitting in my room for about a month now.

Next thing i'm buying is the new SS Freak kit.

About the reg, we can't say if it was over pressurized or not because we werent at a chrono, but when I took the oring off the end cap, it was majorly deformed, and looked like it was totally the wrong size, I put one of the o-rings that came as spares on and lubed it, gassed it up and no leakage. I'm betting on it being that wierd o-ring, but I guess we wont know until he shoots the omen over a chrony
