Default Traditions Vortek

I'm close to purchasing a Traditions Vortech but I'ld really like to hear from someone that hunts with one.
I've been going back and forth in my decision to buy it, or the very popular T/C Triumph.

I'm sure you've read my preference for TC products as thats the brand I am most familiar with. Last fall I purchased a TC Triumph as my new Ohio gun season rifle. My son now has my TC FireHawk. I can tell you the Triumph is the most comfortable rifle out of the box I have ever purchased. It shoots really well and the recoil is hardly noticeable. I like the finger removable breach plug system. I have owned TC products since the late 70's and still believe they are the best. Good luck on your purchase whatever brand you choose.

The Traditions is #1 in my book so I'd go for the Vortek hands down...

Vortek features you just can't overlook

Accelerator Breech Plug
Quick Release of Drop Out Trigger assembly for easy cleaning and maintence
Egronomic Alloy Frame is lighter weight and helps prevent rust
1:28" twist rifling
Stainless Steel barrels for added rust protection
209 shotgun primer ignition
PAS- Projectile Alignment System easy loading and more consistent groups
Fast action release button
Quick Relief Recoil Pad
Over-travel hammer
Over-molded stock and forend
Thumbhole stocks available
WilliamsTM metal fiber optic sights
Drilled & tapped for scope
Sling swivel studs
Solid aluminum ramrod
Soft Touch camouflage stocks
360 Degree Barrel Porting reduces muzzle jump
Extended ambidextrous hammer spur


Dual Safety System
Traditions™ Dual Safety System incorporates 2 safeties, making equipped guns some of the safest available muzzleloaders. A cross block trigger safety is built into the trigger guard, just like a standard rifle or shotgun safety. The second safety is built into the hammer and blocks the firing pin from igniting the primer if the trigger has not been pulled.


Clearly the Traditions Vortek matches all the Thompson center features and add's a few to boot.

Good Luck with which ever one you choose!

Traditions Performance Firearms, known for their extremely accurate and dependable muzzleloaders.
For the past 20+ years, Traditions Performance Firearms has been a dominating force in the muzzleloading industry so I believe it's the other way around, I believe TC is trying to build rifles like Traditons Performance Firearms. So far TC's made a LOT of money marketing their product as far as building muzzleloaders as good as Traditions, well that's a whole nother story...

Default Traditions Vortek Versus TC

Both are good guns and you can't really go wrong with either. Some other things to think about.........The TC's are usually higher cost but they are made in the US whereas the Traditions are not.

if you are interested in a traditions, be sure you check the trigger pull on it first. Traditions isnt know for quality triggers, normally they are heavy and gritty so just make sure you check it out.
