Old Saybrook, CT – Traditions™ Performance Firearms, known for their extremely accurate and dependable muzzleloaders, is proud to introduce the next innovation in muzzleloading – the Vortek StrikerFire™. In development since 2008, this patent-pending rifle takes features from the popular Vortek™ series but incorporates a StrikerFire™ system which has no external hammer. The system is easy to use – slide the striker button forward until it locks and then shoot. By eliminating an external hammer, this allows for faster lock time, the ability to mount your scope closer to the bore, and also a crisp breaking trigger. Additionally, this system allows the gun to operate with less weight, keeping it light at 6.25 lbs.
De-cocking the firearm is simple. The recessed de-cocking button allows for quick and quiet de-cocking of the firearm. Also, when you break open the gun an automatic de-cocking occurs. This rifle is equipped with 2 safeties – a trigger block safety and a striker block safety, making it one of the safest guns on the market.
The Vortek StrikerFire™ is packed with features. This rifle has a 28″ tapered, fluted Magnum Chromoly barrel which is one of the best barrel materials for strength and accuracy. It is also equipped with a 1-piece stainless steel Accelerator Breech Plug™ which allows you to fire both loose and palletized powder without changing the breech plug. The Speed Load System in the barrel enables easier loading and more consistent groups. The crisp, clean breaking trigger is set at 3 lbs. and is a 2 stage trigger. A new feature on this gun is the Removable Butt Pad which removes with the touch of a button to allow for convenient storage.
Traditions™ continues to revolutionize muzzleloading technology and is proud to be on the forefront of the first new technology advancement in years. We invite you to pick up the next innovation in muzzleloading and feel the difference.
