Its sleek profile and its sealed pivoting breech lever action design make this muzzleloader one of the simplest on the marketSimple to operate; Simple to clean.
The Omegas unique action operates by using the forward motion of the trigger guard lever to pivot the breech block downward, allowing easy access to the 209 primer pocket. Once primed, the lever is pulled rearward, raising the breech block and sealing the breech. This closed breech design seals the 209 primer away from rain, snow or sleet.
Once the Omega has been loaded and primed, firing the rifle is accomplished by merely cocking the hammer and pulling the trigger. The hammer and trigger mechanism permits the hammer to make contact with the firing pin only when the trigger is pulled fully rearward. Like all hammer guns, getting the Omega into action is fast!
