I'd choose the Impact over the Omega, You'll be much happier with the Break open action on the Impact when it's time to clean the weapon.

I don't understand this? I've had an Accura V2, two Optimas, and a Vortek UL. All break open actions.

I find my Omega easier to clean.

You should read about disassembling the Impact. Hardly easy to clean.

There's more to cleaning a gun than running a patch down the bore.

I have not stayed up to speed on the latest models. Muley, I agree, nothing is easy to clean if it's done right.

I agree also but I think the break open offers a slight advantage especially in the field.

It's nice to clean and lube the trigger now and then FG.

Even cleaning the bore is easier on the Omega, because it stays in line with the stock.

I've read you say the Omega is hard to clean. What is the hard part?

cleaned it 3 months ago with gun scrubber and relubed with barricade. I dont like to use thick gobby oil as it seems to attract dirt and other nasty stuff.

What i hated about the drop actions was having to remove the barrel every time just to clean the trigger mech due to the blow by. Priming with a scope on i found to be another pain.

Greatest deals i ever come across for cleaning a rifle. Heck i even use it when i am customizing a wood stock. My GRP was basically rebuilt on top of it LOL.

Funny you should show that picture. A perfect example of having the stock and barrel in the normal position to clean is easier.

Not sure what you were using for powder, but my trigger stays completely clean. I haven't touched it since I lubed it when I bought the gun.

Removing the barrel doesn't take anymore time than your barrel (15 sec for me). You do remove your barrel to clean and lube your barrel pivot point don't you?

Hard to put primers in? Stop talking like an old lady. It's not hard.

Why don't you mention the best breech plug design in the industry? I can shoot BH 209 with a ML primer. (Rem Kleanbore)

Face it FG. CVA has you by the nuts. It's not the best inline available.

Ok...your turn.

rarely remove the barrel for cleaning. I just add a bit of oiling now to the sidewalls of the frame.

I dont get any blowby and therefore, nothing for me to clean.

No one has me by the nuts, not even a woman!
