Traditions has raised the bar yet again with the Vortek StrikerFire LDR. This patent-pending rifle comes equipped with the StrikerFire system and a 30" Chromoly barrel, allowing you to reach out farther with increased accuracy. The 30" barrel allows for a longer powder burn which translates to increased velocity, better consistency, and improved downrange accuracy. This is the rifle you want with you when distance counts!
To cock the gun, simply slide the striker button forward until it locks and the rifle is cocked. 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.
This rifle comes equipped with the TAC2 Trigger System - a two stage competition-style trigger set a 2 pounds. This trigger is an upgrade from triggers on other muzzleloaders currently on the market. 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, and Speed Load System.
This gun also comes with the NEW Quick-T Ramrod Handle. It functions like a palm save and t-handle all in one, maling it easier and more comfortable to load your rifle. The Quick-T Ramrod Handle has a t-shaped piece with brass jag that can screw in, allowing your ramrod to function like a work or cleaning rod. The Quick-T Ramrod Handle sits on your ramrod when it is in the storage position on your rifle.
Weighing in at only 6.8 pounds (non-scoped), the Vortek StrikerFire LDR is lighter than some 28" guns currently on the market! This rifle is .50 caliber and comes with a 3-9x40 Duplex Traditions scope mounted and boresighted by a factory-trained technician. This gun does not come with iron sights. This rifle will give you confidence for that long distance shot. We invite you to join the hammerless revolution and pick up the Vortek StrikerFire LDR to feel the difference!
