Thompson Center Omega Z5 Rifle – Blue/Black

Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Hello jps…. No problem at all with 150 grains. In fact, that is the spec. max. amount.

The Thompson Center Omega Z5 was designed with simplicity in mind. It is easy to shoot and easy to clean. The breech seals the 209 primer from rain and snow and is easy to open with a simple forward motion of the lever on the trigger guard. The sealed breech plug design also prevents the crushing of Pyrodex pellets. The Z5 can handle a powder load of up to 150 grains for more power or longer range shooting.Technical InformationNotes:
Exposed hammer
Sling swivel studs
Rubber recoil pad
Fiber optic sights
Blue chrome-moly steel with a silver weatherguard finish

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Black powder residue is corrosive to steel. Several by-products of black powder combustion are hygroscopic, releasing corrosive compounds when hydrolyzed. This accelerates wear to the firearm.
Smokeless powder used in shotgun shells and rifle cartridges should never be used in a muzzleloader not made to shoot such powders. Using smokeless powders, in firearms not designed for them, can cause the barrel to explode.
To open the breech of the Omega muzzleloading rifle, pull the knob on the trigger guard down- ward. That exposes the rear of the barrel and the primer recess in the breech plug for priming. WEIGHT: 34 ozs.
CVA recommends a minimum of 50 grains, by volume, of blackpowder or blackpowder substitute in your . 45 or . 50 caliber muzzleloader. The maximum load in CVA break- action guns, and any other CVA in-line rifle designated as a “Magnum” is 150 grains by volume.
Its use in weapons has declined due to smokeless powder replacing it, and it is no longer used for industrial purposes due to its relative inefficiency compared to newer alternatives such as dynamite and ammonium nitrate/fuel oil.
Overloading or Extra Powder in Ammo

Putting extra powder in the case will aggravate an already dangerous situation. Extra powder could also create a dangerous situation where a gun blows up, as many guns don`t have a way to vent gas and some don`t have adequate locking lugs to handle the extra pressure.

Pyrodex is less sensitive to ignition than black powder, and uses the same shipping and storage guidelines as smokeless powder. Pyrodex is more energetic per unit of mass than black powder, but it is less dense, and can be substituted at a 1:1 ratio by volume for black powder in many applications.
The total watch weighs 130.4 grams.
At 260 grams, it weighs just over half a pound and wearers feel every gram of that. For some that might discount this tool watch as a casual watch to be worn and shown off on a daily basis, but for die-hard enthusiasts that want a larger-than-life watch, the Omega Seamaster is ideal.
Both of these loads will consistently shoot 1-inch groups at 100 yards from several of my tuned deer muzzleloaders and are capable of consistent clean kills out to 200 yards.
The .45-70, also known as the .45-70 Government and the .45-70 Springfield, is a .45 caliber rifle cartridge originally holding 70 grains of black powder that was developed at the U.S. Army`s Springfield Armory for use in the Springfield Model 1873.
The main disadvantages of black powder are a relatively low energy density (compared to modern smokeless powders) and the extremely large quantities of soot left behind. During the combustion process, less than half of black powder is converted to gas.
Black Powder is very sensitive to flame and spark and can also be ignited by friction and impact. When ignited unconfined, it bums with explosive violence and will explode if ignited under even slight confinement.
Nitrocellulose gunpowder does deteriorate with time, moisture and heat, but it becomes less potent, not more.
When properly stored, an unopened container of smokeless powder has an indefinite shelf life, but once it is opened, the stabilizers it contains begin to slowly but surely weaken.
Round nose bullets provide more damage and deeper penetration than other types of bullets, such as flat-nose bullets.
The short answer is morbidly obese. Science shows that a 9mm bullet shot from a hand gun can cut through 60cm of fat before it stops.
Terminal Ballistics

The heavier the bullet, the better expansion and penetration you`ll get on impact.

Knight® Rifles perform best between 90 and 150 grains of Black Powder, and industry approved black powder substitutes.
The classification “F” stands for “Fine” and dates back to when grains were classified as either fine (F) or coarse (C). The number of letter Fs denotes how fine the powder is. The more Fs, the finer the powder. FFFFFg (5F) is the finest powder used in muzzleloading. The finer the powder, the faster it will burn.
The main disadvantages of black powder are a relatively low energy density (compared to modern smokeless powders) and the extremely large quantities of soot left behind. During the combustion process, less than half of black powder is converted to gas.
NEVER use smokeless powder in a muzzleloader—unless the gun manufacturer specifies the barrel is capable of withstanding the pressure of smokeless powder. NEVER pour powder from a powder horn or flask directly into the barrel.
Consistency is arguably the critical factor affecting muzzleloader performance. Schearer runs a saliva-moistened patch down his barrel after each shot, but other methods can be just as good as long as they are consistent from shot to shot.

I have a Scuba Pro X650a regulator. After having the unit serviced this winter I used it last month for the first time in St. Croix.

The first day of diving went fine. However, as the week progressed I noticed that when taking in a breath the regulator continued to trickle air at a very small rate. While not enough to be concerned about safety at this point it has become an annoyance both from the fact that bubbles continue to trickle past my ears and air usage has increased. This is an intermittent problem.

I had it looked at by 2 certified Scuba Pro Dive shops and they could not find anything wrong with it though one did lower the first stage pressure just to a bit to see if that would work. I also cycled the control lever position for “dive” and “surface” intervals to ensure that there were no sticking problems.

It does appear that the problem is intermittent and that it only occurs when the regulator is under water.

In addition is there a diagram in which I can use to troubleshoot this problem?

NOTE: this version of the X650 was not on the recall list of Scuba Pro.

Any help would be appreciated.


ANSWER : Strangely enough I had the exact same problem with mine.. I’m in the caribbean I love diving and spear gun fishing.. I had one of these a year ago with the same issue I actually wound up increasing the pressure to get it to work.. It wasnt muc use cause my air ran out at a faster rate. Was never able to fix ,, A buddy of mine had the same issue ,, wound up replacing the swivle vale and this helped for a week and then back to the same old .. I then changed to the Aqualung Mikron Regulator had no issues and it works great .. Quite frankly I think we had bad ones here but I’m not sure where you got yours. If you wish you can replace the swivle valve (most likely cause) but I’ll just change the unit and get another..

Hiya I have a fujifilm e-900 I have used the camera less than 20 times. The last time I used it I had no problems at all. I had left it sitting in it’s case for 6 months. Now when I try and us it I get the hand with lightning bolt on the lcd. Which I assume means the battery encasement is open. It isn’t open. The camera turns on no problem then when I try and use any function it shuts down. How do I fix this?
ANSWER : The hand with the lightning bolt icon usually means the camera is telling you that there is not enough light and you need to pop the flash up before you take a picture.
If you haven’t used the camera for a while have you tried fresh batteries or charged the 2 re chargeable AA’s that came with the camera?

Don’t know if it’s a primer failure or absence of powder. Primer CCI small pistol; Powder Bullseyie; Bullet 148 grain wadcutter; powder 3 grains, Gun S & W 14,This has happpened three times in the last month. The gun did not fire. I couiold not turn the cylinder. The bullet stopped the cylinder from turning.It was pushed back with a god and casing and bullet were separated. The primer was spent and there was no powder inside. The bullet seemed a little burnt.
Maybe there had been powder inside after all?
The popular theory is that I pulled the cssing after adding the powder, weighed the powder and then forgot to reload the powdeer before seating the bullet. But three times? Is there another possible explanation or explanations? I use a three-turret Lee reloader and there is an occasional primer seating problem; it doesn’t go in far enough always
ANSWER : I have seen this many many times before when I used to reload, my Remington M788 22-250. If inadvertently, didn’t add any powder, the primer had enough force to just break the seal, with the brass, and push the bullet out, just into the throat of the chamber… had to use my cleaning rod, to push the bullet back out. Sometimes, too the powder itself, just went stoopid, and it would burn? and not explode, if that’s at all possible, and every now and then, and this is over thousands of reloads, sometimes one or two, just didn’t work, would either jam in the barrel, or fallout the end I too used to use a Lee-loader too. You need to ensure that every case has powder. Also I have had “Bad” primers too. A primer has a large amount of force.. believe it or not.. and also 3 grains of powder is NOT a lot either. Well compared to the M788,anyway… It would be easy to “Miss” a Fill. We are all only human though.

I have a TX500, never been used (just out of the box) and had to get an electrician to my home for this problem. It will start rolling but quits in a few seconds. The electrician believes that it is a problem in the sensor that rides at the belt. There is only one sensor in the pulley; he thinks that perhaps there should be two as there is a hole placement opposite the one that is in there. When the belt quits, it goes to a number 3 on the board which he thinks is the sensor as well. If he is correct, where do we get another magnet to place there? If he is not correct, please offer help. We did not get a owners manual in the box and surely could use one; where can we get one? Please help…thankyou
ANSWER : Hello,I believe the best thing to do at this point is to look for a way to get the manual of the device, this will give a full guide and better understanding on how to fix this problem.Check to search for the manual of the device, the link provides almost all manuals to all device.Take care.

I have a problem with my machine, on occasion, not recognizing when I’m starting, and the display will not start. I have to remove one of the batteries or it will stay on forever. When it starts up, it works fine, no complaints whatsoever. But lately, I’ve not been able to use it due to the start-up problem. I put the batteries in, the display comes on, but it will not start up when I begin motion. The control buttons will not work, either. Please inform me what it is I can do to fix this problem. Thank You
ANSWER : Troubleshooting on this model is very limited to anyone but the vendor. I would recommend sharing the symptoms with a representative from fitnessquest here.
Good luck

I bought a new mossberg 590 a1 shot gun a month ago, I love the gun but its having a couple of problems, the first problem is that when shooting every once in a while i get sprayed in the face with exuast from shooting through the safety very scary! any ideas whats causing this? how to fix it? second is that some times the fireing pin sticks and the gun will not discharge a round? the third problem is that i have had feeding issues with gun where it will not realice a gound from the tube, ive taken a tip of a knife to the stuck round in the tube and it prys out with little effort, these problems dont happen every time i go shooting, just every once in a while, but they a happening more and more, im conserned cause the gun is brand new, and i wanna be safe while shooting, can you guys help me? any ideas/solutions? please help!!!!!!!
ANSWER : Personally, with that many problems, I’d call Mossberg and get a return authorization. None of these things should be happening, especially with a new gun.

Extremely high rpm’s in neutral
ANSWER : Maybe the idle speed needs to be decreased, or check for engine overheating since you said that this happens after you have had the engine on for a while, this too can hcause strange rpms.

Good Luck!
