The Traditions® Vortek StrikerFire VAPR™ Long Distance Rifle (LDR) takes in-line muzzleloaders to the next level by removing the need for an external hammer and replacing it with an internal StrikerFire™ System. This model comes equipped with rugged fiber optic open sights for excellent target acquisition in low light scenarios.
The Traditions® Vortek StrikerFire VAPR™ LDR makes firing your muzzleloader safe and efficient. This 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 system 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.
The Vortek VAPR™ LDR comes with a fast twist 1:24" rifled barrel, giving the rifle the ability to properly stabilize the modern high BC muzzleloading bullets. Traditions™ equipped the StrikerFire™ VAPR LDR with some additional features. The StrikerFire™ is outfitted with a TAC2™ two-stage trigger that is set at 2 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 LDR also features a premium CeraKote™ finish, black composite 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. Additionally Traditions® has equipped this model with rugged, aircraft grade aluminum, fiber optic open sights for excellent target acquisition in low light hunting scenarios.
