Vortek StrikerFire® LDR Northwest Magnum with Nitride Coating .50 Cal Realtree Xtra
New for 2016! Traditions has upped the ante by coating this Vortek StrikerFire® with a finish designed to protect your rifle both inside and out. Nitride Coating, a well-recognized finish used by many manufacturers, provides a layer of protection both on the outside of your barrel and inside your barrel. The finish protects your rifle from rust and pitting caused by weather and corrosion. While protecting your rifle, it also provides increased accuracy and extends the life of your muzzleloader. Traditions is a game changer for you and your muzzleloader season!
This rifle is specifically designed for hunters in the Northwestern part of the United States. The Vortek StrikerFire® LDR Northwest Magnum is light, accurate, and legal! The rifle is equipped with an exposed musket nipple and Williams™ metal fiber optic sights to meet state-specific regulations. The Vortek StrikerFire® LDR Northwest Magnum also comes equipped with our Accelerator Breech Plug™ which removes by hand and requires no tools!
The patented Vortek StrikerFire® is the most revolutionary muzzleloader on the market! This model has a 30" barrel which provides you with increased accuracy. With a longer barrel it allows for longer powder burn time which translates to increased velocity, better consistency, and improved downrange accuracy. This is the rifle you want with you when distance really counts!
The Vortek StrikerFire® comes with the StrikerFire System . 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 like the 1-piece Accelerator Breech Plug™, Dual Safety System, and Speed Load System.
This gun also comes with the 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 gun does not come with 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!
