May, 2011…Old Saybrook, CT- Traditions™ Performance Firearms, known for their extremely accurate and dependable muzzleloaders, announces their new Pursuit™ Ultralight. Traditions™ has taken the well-known and dependable Pursuit series and combined it with the lightweight and balanced Ultralight series, bringing to the market the lightest muzzleloader in the world.
Traditions™ has addressed the problem of muzzleloaders being too heavy and created a revolutionary gun. Weighing in at a mere 5.15 lbs, the new Pursuit™ Ultralight has a Chromoly steel barrel which has long been recognized as the best barrel material for strength and accuracy among centerfires. Despite a lighter gun, none of the great features you have come to expect with Traditions™ have been sacrificed. The Pursuit™ Ultralight is Traditions’ mid-level, break action gun for hunters and shooters who are looking for a full-featured gun at a fraction of the cost. The 26″ barrel comes with Premium CeraKote Finish which provides a high-quality, long lasting coating that can handle anything Mother Nature can dish out. The Pursuit™ Ultralight also comes equipped with the Speed Load System for easier bullet loading and more consistent groups, Williams™ fiber optic sights, and the Accelerator Breech Plug™. The Pursuit™ Ultralight has a Dual Safety System which allows for two safeties: a trigger block safety built into the trigger guard and a secondary internal hammer block safety, which stops the hammer from engaging the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. The Pursuit™ Ultralight MSRP ranges from $295 to $435 depending on the model. Traditions™ has added many of the features requested by hunters and shooters and created a gun that is impressive in its own right. Traditions™ invites you to feel the difference for yourself.
