I decided I am going to wait and see how this rifle pans out for other people.I removed it from my cart and put it on my... Wish List. I thank everyone for all their input and replies.Best Wishes - Tom
Idk, even if it was at half the price id still have trouble pressing the order button on this model.
recoiless Norica Omnia ZRS zero recoil system from Pyramid. Mine arrives Thursday.
Got the rifle tested. Here is some relevant info.Owners manual said "if bench resting place the forearm on something soft." I tested with the rifles center of gravity on a wadded up T shirt on top of a Caldwell front rest sand bag. I thought this would be best for harmonics. Cleaned the barrel and mounted a Burris 8-32 X 44 R/A rimfire/airgun scope on it. Tested in my basement at 32X power and at 50 feet.830 f.p.s., 12.8 ft/lbs with JSB 8.4, Trigger gauge read 4 pounds and creepy non-adjustable trigger. I tested 6 different pellets JSB 8.4 and Air Arms were best. All shots were inside a 7/16" circle with 80 per cent inside 3/8" I felt like it could be compared to a untuned Diana 34.Tom Gaylord's blog said his trigger was 2 lb 8 oz. I will have to test mine again. My very first 12 ft/lb recoilless rifle was bought back in the mid 90's. Quite a few Field Target shooters were using the Giss System recoilless Park 93. I loved that rifle. But everybody stopped selling parts .I hope this gives you guys some good info on the Omnia.

Besides, inside the spring that theoretically adjust the pull force, there is an smaller and harder spring that Norica inserts to limit the lowest force. So you can take it off and tou will have a trigger so soft as you want.Stock was designed as two parts in line, but Norica wants to have open sights, so stock has to do a curve to lower the cheek. it is truth that the adjustable cheekpiece is useful only to shoot with scope: with open sights is better to take it off.Grip is original from ZRS, designed by the same person who design grips and handguards for Anschutz and Feinwerkbau guns. It is ambidextrous.Check the chamber because Norica makes it a little narrow: sometimes needs to refit manually with a 60° drill, 6mm diameter, some 1/10mm only. After that, brush the chamber.If you have more questions, do not hesitate to ask me. Thank you for your interest in this airgun.Greetings from Spain.https://airgunwarriors.com/community/airgun-talk/norica-omnis-zrs-purchase/
I am tempted to get one, looks like a neat gun and not too over priced Something different for sure.
I have the Omnia ZRS in .177 for about a week. The first thing I did after unboxing was shoulder the rifle and TRY to aquire the open fiber optic sights. Unbelievably, you can't acquire unless you remove the cheekpiece. Tom Gaylord said the same. I put on a quality scope and tested it at 50 feet basement with 8.4 JSB at 830 f.p.s. 12.8 ft/lbs. Trigger scale says 4 lbs. Tom Gayord's is 2 lb 8 oz. Trigger is adjustable but no instructions' in the one page owner's manual. Accuracy at 50 feet ALL shots into 7/16 inch and 80 per cent into 3/8 inch. JSB and Air Arms 8.4 best with 10.4 pellets good also.To test the recoil system I balanced 3 pellets on top of each other and placed them on top of my elevation knob on the scope. I took a shot and the pellets were undisturbed. By the way, in Spain they don't sell the rifle with a cheekpiece. I would compare this rifle with a tuned Diana 34 with creepy trigger.I will eventually get the trigger figured out and I will be happy. I intend to remove the scope and put on a nice German peep sight. I assume I will be able to aquire the front sight with the cheekpiece on.
