    Anyone that is a fan of the Craig Fantom Fighter's probably knows what this is.

    The Omen is a very rare and limited custom piece by Fred Craig. Only 3-5 Omens were made.
    You are probably most familiar with his Fantom F-15 in 38 Super. This piece is similar but the slide is ¼” shorter and wears a matte finish.

    Craig designed the Omen to be the ultimate carry piece with an emphasis on concealability, lightweight and maximum firepower (8+1).
    This is by far both the smallest and lightest firearm Craig has made to date.

    The Omen conversion began with an aluminum alloy Caspian hi-cap frame that was made exclusively for Craig by Caspian Arms.
    The barrel is a match grade tube, rifled with the ECM process and features an “accu-lock” reverse plug that ensures a 360 degree lockup.
    The finish is Fantom Armor, a matte black Teflon application.

    The Omen cycles perfectly, never malfunctioning, despite its shorter barrel and lighter weight. You can’t find a more elegant Craig custom than this one.

    Pistol is in excellent/original condition with only 50-100 rounds through it.

    Included wuth the Omen is 4 custom magazines made exclusively for the Omen. I have been offered $200 each for the magazines but will not sell them separately.

    Specifications:

    Firearm: Craig Ltd. Omen
    Frame : Alloy
    Sights: Novak tritium
    Safeties : Ambi thumb safety thinned and radiused
    Capacity : 8 +1
    Barrel : Ramped 3.5"
    Slide : 5.75"
    Height : 4.5"
    Weight: 22 oz before magazine
    Width : 1"
    Caliber: .38 Super
    Serial no. 005


    ***Sold***
    Trades considered: Yost BHP/Wilson Combat CQB Compact LW/Les Baer

    Best gun I ever owned was a Craig-built Caspian limited gun.

    A really top notch gunsmith.

    This gun is probably the best gun/value this forum has seen in a long time.

    No offence to other people's guns.

    I have an unfired Craig Omen in 40SW. Dont know how many were made but I was told mine is the only one in that caliber. Tempted to shoot it but been holding off. How did the 38 super shoot when you took her to the range?

    I've probably owned 10 Craig Fantom's in just about every caliber and 1 Omen.
    The Omen, although compact and very lightweight is probably my favorite to shoot.
    Very smooth cycling and zero malfunctions.
    Also this is the best carry piece I have ever owned due to the lightweight and concealability.
