The Vortek™ Ultralight has a 28″ Ultralight Chromoly tapered and fluted barrel with premium CeraKote finish. Chromoly has long been recognized as the best barrel material for strength and accuracy. It also removes over a pound of weight from the barrel eliminating the “muzzle-heavy” feel like others on the market. Coupled with an LT-1 Alloy frame, the Vortek™ Ultralight is built to travel and is easy to carry. The Vortek Ultralight is packed full of features. The one-piece, stainless steel Accelerator Breech Plug™ removes in just three turns by hand and also allows you to fire both loose and pelletized powder. The Vortek™ Ultralight is one of the safest guns on the market, thanks to the Dual Safety System, which includes a trigger block safety and rebounding hammer safety.
