The Traditions Vortek StrikerFire VAPR Muzzleloader Rifle takes in-line muzzleloaders to the next level by removing the need for an external hammer and replacing it with an internal StrikerFire System. The StrikerFire works on the same principle as modern center-fire rifle safeties. To cock the gun simply slide the striker button forward until it locks then fire. The recessed de-cocking button allows for quick and quiet de-cocking of the firearm. The gun also comes equipped with an automatic de-cocking mechanism so when the gun is opened it is automatically de-cocked. By eliminating the external hammer you get faster lock times plus the ability to mount your scope closer to the bore allows the gun to operate with less weight.
Traditions equipped the StrikerFire with some additional features. The StrikerFire is outfitted with a two-stage trigger that is set at 3 pounds and is creep free. The innovative stock design makes the rifle lighter than any other rifle in its class while still maintaining maximum strength and durability. The Strikerfire VAPR model comes with a 1:24″ fast twist barrel which is designed to properly stabilize modern high-BC muzzleloading bullets.
The StrikerFire also features a Premium Burnt Bronze CeraKote finish Veil Wideland Camo stock one-piece Accelerator Breech Plug that allows you to fire both loose or pelletized powder without changing the breech plug a Dual Safety System and Speed Load System that enables easier loading and more consistent groupings. This model also includes mounted adjustable fiber optic sights.
