Yeah ronn, I agree with you... I've been keeping an eye on Traditions Firearms since I purchsed my Pursuit LT in 2006
And so far I am really impressed with Traditions, a Lot of people don't even realize Traditions has the Outfitter series of centerfire rifles
offering popular hunting Calibers like the .243, .270, .308, .30-06 & .444
Interchangeable Wilson rifled Barrels (made in the USA) so you can go from muzzleloader, to rifle or even shotgun in just a couple of minutes.
I'm not saying Traditions is better than their compettitors, Traditions just happens to be (in my opinion) the more affordable, quality alternative to a lot of other manufacturers who over price their products.
Look what happened to knight, luckily someone believed in that product enough to rebuild that company and get it back into the game, but I believe they fell because they priced themselves right off the market maybe I'm wrong but that's what I think happened....
