Vortek StrikerFire

Vortek StrikerFire

The Vortek StrikerFire is a hammerless muzzleloading rifle from Traditions Performance Firearms.  The StrikerFire does not have an external hammer, which the company claims offers four distinct advantages:

  • faster lock time
  • ability to mount scope closer to the bore
  • ligher weight
  • crisper trigger

To shoot the rifle, the shooter slides a striker button forward, which cocks the internal striker.  There is a recessed de-cocking button which quietly and quickly de-cocks the striker.

The gun has a 28″ fluted barrel, one-piece stainless steel breech plug and a two-stage trigger.  The butt pad removes with the touch of a button to allow for storage in the stock.
