    i have the same gun, and i have a $50-$70 Red Head
    muzzle loader scope on mine. a normal scope will work fine my uncle has a cheaper bushnell scope on his. and my brother has a leupold vx-1 on his. i would try and get a nikon if i could, but any scope will work.

      Cabelas also sells a cheaper muzzle loader scopes. Depending on how much powder you plan on using you might want to think about getting a scope made for slug guns so you don't bust up your cross hairs.

        Bushnell, Burris, Tasco, Simmons, etc. in fixed 4 power will serve you fine.

          Well im only 17 and just bought a T/C omega thumbhole.
          The one thing i will say is dont buy a cheap scope. Quality should be your first priority. The Omega z5 is a nice gun and will last a long time if you treat right. If i were you id save a little money and go with a Nikon. ive never had one fail and honestly i dont treat my guns as good as i should.

            Anyway what i was gettin at was i just put a nikon prostaff 3-9x40 rifle scope on my T/C omega cause really im not planning on dropping a whitetail at 250 yards yards with a muzzleloarder. If youre gonna shoot that far id reccomend a .270 Win

                You can use a different scope besides that one.I would recommend a regular optic scope.I myself would forget what circle equals what yardage while having a deer in the scope.

                  I have a used straight 4x leupold on my TC that I bought for $100. Works great.
                  Check out the SWFA website for used optics. Ive had good luck with them and the prices are good as well.

                      I also am a youth hunter (13) and so, of course, am on a low budget. I have a Barska ridgeline all camo scope on mine. I payed 70 dollars for it and my dad and uncles higher priced leupolds arent as good as it!

                        Another uncle has a prostaff and my Barska, admittedly by all, is better then his prostaff, for half the price.

                          The SWFA website is at www.swfa.com

                          Go into the "sample list" for used stuff.
