Old Saybrook, CT – -(Ammoland.com)- Traditions Performance Firearms is proud to announce that the Vortek StrikerFire® LDR has been awarded the 2014 Field & Stream Best of the Best award in the muzzleloader category.
Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream, comments on the Best of the Best Awards “Our staff spent the better part of the past year finding and testing gear that will make our readers’ time in the woods more productive and more fun.
The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest, displaying absolute excellence in their field. The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money.”
Traditions President Tom Hall remarks, “It is truly an honor to be recognized by Field & Stream with the Best of the Best Award for the Vortek StrikerFire LDR. This rifle is a new, innovative design that is leading the way in new technology within the muzzleloading industry. ”
“The Best of the Best testing team puts these rifles through rigorous testing and we are so proud that our rifle stood out amongst the solid group of our competitors’ products. Thank you to Field & Stream and the testers for considering our rifle and for this outstanding award and honor.”
Of the Vortek StrikerFire LDR, the Field & Stream Testers write “A hammerless cocking system, lightweight design, and alloy frame helped vault the .50 caliber Vortek StrikerFire LDR to the head of the pack this year. The 30-inch chromoly barrel and a smooth 2-pound two-stage trigger were also factors, as they contributed to downrange accuracy and reliability. Not only did the test rifle shoot impressive groups, but the test team found it incredibly easy to load as well.”
