    I guess the bottom line is how much money, space, and need for convenience the OP has.  The thing that keeps the Omega in my mind is the relatively clean, quiet, convenient operation it seems to provide.  My views on compressors has been different than many since my first choice for a compressor would probably be a gas powered Nuvair/Coltri or similar (I'm in a very rural area).  Less convenient than electric in many ways but provides certain advantages.  For an urban backyard shooter or even a suburban shooter with space constraints the Omega seems like it has certain advantages.  Agree that the Omega is not likely to provide the same service life as the Daystate but would it be adequate or even more than adequate for the OP.   Or the base model as you linked above might be all he would need.  All seems relative to each person's needs.

    Thanks for all the helpful replies. I was actually leaning towards the Daystate based on the feedback about the quality. Then I found the Hatsan on sale for $1000 and pulled the trigger. I'm sure it isn't quite as good quality as the daystate, but it's got a lot of features and a great price point so I can spend more money on new rifles. I'll be sure to let you all know how it works for me.

    Congratulations on getting a compressor.   Hopefully all of the compressors discussed work well for people who have them.  Seems it is a matter of best balance between cost, features, and performance for each person's needs.

    I'm not sure how much you plan to spend, and if the $1300 or so for the AV or Hatsan are at your maximum? But, my recommendation if at all possible is to go with the Daystate (Coltri) LC-110 ($2,000).

    My Daystate/Coltri MCH-3/LC110 showed up today from AOA.  Exceptionally well packaged so thumbs up to AOA.  Wow is all I can say.  Quiet and has the appearance of a quality built machine.  I'm filling my 90 cu-in bottle from 3000 PSI to 4500 PSI in about 3-4 minutes.  So far about 5 bottle fills.  Nice to be back to plinking.  After my AirForce ePump crapped out it I was missing the fun of the hobby.

    Thanks to all the replies here, congrats blackbeard on your new compressor as well.  I agree with bandg as well.

    Congrats on your new compressor . I'm sure it will serve you well. 

    I paid $993.00 shipped for my Hatsan Lightning from Field Supply and so far I couldn't be happier. But I only have a little more than an hour on it so far. Some guys say theirs is loud and vibrates but mine runs very smoothly and isn't really that loud. My uncle has an Mrod air unit and it is much louder. My Yong Heng was also louder until it blew up. Once I rebuilt it , it was much quieter and smoother running.  I started running Royal Purple oil and I really believe that is one of the reasons it is quieter. Just seems to run smoother too.

    I checked field supply. The hatsan is 1093. Not 993.

    I recall seeing it for 993.00 in the past.

    I placed an order. Wish it was 993 shipped. Even 1093 shipped would be nice. But no. I paid $1173 shipped.

    I don't know if this is correct but you must live in AR.  They charged tax.  Unless internet orders in your state has changed.  I would have been upset to.  Also the thing I've noticed with FS is you have to wait for a sale.  Here on the forums we might have drawn to much attention to these compressor's and FS is trying to squeeze buyers a little.

    Live in Minnesota. This is first time ordering from field supply. Can't wait for sales, need a compressor asap. Still better than paying 1339 i guess. You are right they trying squeeze all they can from the customer. Last time I checked the hatsan spark was $370. Now its $457. That was like a month ago.

    Looks like they raised the price. I paid $993.00 total shipped back in early March .

    I'm up to 75 minutes run time and it's been working great.
