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.
