A self-consistent zero-dimensional model of a Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF) configuration is presented. The plasma target is a Field Reversed Configuration (FRC). Model parameters were scanned using a Monte Carlo routine in order to determine an operating point that would correspond to reactor conditions. Albeit the model being intrinsically optimistic, the highest Q-values found only slightly exceed unity. The limited performance is due to the short dwell time of the liner, preventing a large portion of the fuel to burn.
