Product DescriptionThe Omega Z5, the work horse of the Omega line-up, .50-Caliber Muzzleloader from Thompson/Center features a sealed pivoting breech design for simple operation and hassle-free cleaning. This muzzleloader uses the forward motion of its trigger guard lever to pivot the breech block downward, allowing for easy access to the 209 primer pocket while reducing exposure to rain, snow and sleet. With its 28" barrel, the Omega burns magnum charges with maximum efficiency, producing high velocities for flatter trajectories and increased downrange energy, and the sealed breech plug is specially designed to avoid the problem of crushing Pyrodex pellets which could cause a misfire. Cleaning the Omega couldn't be easier since there is no bolt, barrel or stock to remove; simply pivot the breech block down, unscrew the breech plug and you're done.
