Traditions is proud to introduce the next revolution in muzzleloading - the Vortek StrikerFire. This gun is the first new innovation in the muzzleloading industry in years. In development since 2008, this patent-pending rifle takes in-line muzzleloaders to the next level by taking away the external hammer and using an internal StrikerFire System. To cock the gun, simply slide the striker button forward until it locks and fire. The recessed de-cocking buttons allows for quick and quiet de-cocking of the firearm and the gun is also equipped with an automatic de-cocking mechanism - when the gun is opened, it is automatically de-cocked. By eliminating the external hammer, this allows for faster locktime, the ability to mount your scope closer to the bore and allows the gun to operate with less weight.
Traditions has equipped the StrikerFire with new features. The Vortek StrikerFire is outfitted with the TAC2 Trigger System - a 2 stage competition-style trigger set at 2 pounds. The Stow-N-Go Removable Butt Pad allows the butt pad to be removed with the press of a button for convenient storage inside the stock. The StrikerFire also has some of the same features you have come to depend on from the Vortek Ultralight series like the 1-piece Accelerator Breech Plug, Dual Safety System, Premium CeraKote Finish, and Speed Load System.
