Any one buy this compressor?
Any problems with it?
Money well spent ?
I will be scrambling pretty soon as my fill company really does not want to mess with the individual wanting a fill.
Its the big company’s there like to fill for,
So with three PCPs and a great white I may be S.O.L
Just looking around and testing the water.

Just read the reviews , All sounds good so far,,,
I am sill going to look around to see if I can get a 4500 psi fill some where in this oil boom town….
Looks like it will take about four months to smuggle the money from the account to buy the Omega.
I looked at the paypal buy now pay latter, 19,9 % interest rate, That’s crazy,,,

So far I have not heard any negative comments on the Omega, Looks like its all systems go,,
Like I say I can not just drop 1,700 down on a compressor, I got to run under the radar its going to take three to four months to channel the money in for this buy,,, Christmas is going to put a dent in the compressor savings .
I have already been through two hands pumps , Not doing that again,,,

Tom Gaylord posted about the Omega on the YF.
I wrote a feature article about the Omega Super Charger for a recent color edition of Shotgun News. I think it was in the July 2014 edition. At any rate, the Omega works fine and is a wonderful compressor for the home user. It will take an 88 cubic-foot carbon fiber tank from 3,000 to 4,500 psi in about 1 hour and 45 minutes. I have filled the same tank from empty in about 4 hours.
I don’t normally drop below 3600 psi these days and the compressor refills the tank in just about an hour.
The compressor is easy to use, very quiet, has low vibration, is very well made and has every adjustment a person could hope for. Unlike the expensive compressors, you can just let this one run on its own — it doesn’t have to be monitored. It purges the moisture at time intervals you set and it shuts off automatically when the desired pressure is reached. And there is no maintenance to speak of. Add grease after 25 hours of operation (it has an hour meter) and change the oil after 3,500 hours. I won’t live long enough to reach that point.
I found the manual a bit brief and lacking detail, but the compressor is a delight. I’ve used mine since last May.

I absolutely love mine. I just gave my brother my 88cf tank and downsized to a backpack friendly 90ci regulated tank. No way I would have considered this without the compressor. Been filling tanks for myself and some local buddies for 6 months. No issues so far. It takes a little time to dial in the purge timer and purge duration timer to ensure properly purging condensate. I can not imagine ever being without a compressor again.
BTW… Go To rifle is my .25 R3M std. Pretty air consumption friendly at 44 ft.lb.
