    Battlefield Vegas has found that all their roller-delayed blowback guns are about as reliable and as durable as any other they've used: HK, Cohaire, PTR, Century, POF, MKE, Special Weapons, Zenith, and Atlantic Firearms. The trick is keeping up on extractor spring and recoil spring replacement. The only brand they had any special problems with was a run of POFs. (BFV at one time stated that they would only purchase Omegas for their MP5s going forward.)

    And, obviously, Battlefield Vegas is most interested in running the guns full-auto, all the time... at least the 9mm and 5.56mm ones. So accuracy is not the most important - or even a particularly important - aspect.

    Coharie, Special Weapons and Omega are all the same thing. Atlantic isn't a manufacturer.

    I'm sure BFV has some kind of purchase agreement with Omega, to suggest they are every bit as good as HK is Todd Bailey talking.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Atlantic Firearms has, "Atlantic Arms Mfg," listed as a maker on their website. I've seen Atlantic Firearms post elsewhere that they consider Omega guns to be solid mid-tier roller-delayed blowback guns.

    Outside of that, I advise you to take it up with Battlefield Vegas.

    Last I checked Atlantic didn't even have a SOT let alone an 07 FFL. I know they have commissioned unique items for their website but so far as I know everything has actually been manufactured by someone else.

    As far as "mid tier" what does that mean? If it means not as good as HK or HK contracts but better than some of the horribly out of spec crap clones out there, sure but not sure that means anything reliable. Is "mid tier" almost HK or slightly better than the other crap clones? And who specifically made that determination?

    Anyone can say anything they wish, do you really think they'd say "Yeah they are crap but they are cheap, basically disposable and a lot easier to get than factory HK guns" assuming that was the case?

    I'd be pretty ok with anyone saying "We have had good luck with Brand X", but when you declare a US clone, especially a Bailey clone, to be pretty much equal to HK and HK contracts...well then I have to question the validity of anything coming from that source.

    I went even get into the fact that they put Century in the same basic class.
