Actually Omega is Tods brother. But from my understanding Tod himself has no direct connection to Omega. Now it is rumored that Tod makes parts for hkparts.net, and then Tods brother uses some of those in his build. I have 2 Omega's that other than a mag fitment ( minor issue) with 1, have been outstanding guns so far. We will see how they hold up in the long run. But I'm very pleased with them this far, and wouldn't hesitate buy another!
