I have the Traditions Vortek and can say without hesitation the Vortek is clearly the best muzzleloader available on the market right now.
The Vortek integrates all the features every hunter looks for in a muzzleloading weapon.
You wont regret buying the Traditions Vortek.
Good Luck

I'm glad you've taken the time to check around for the best price, nothing is more frustrating than buying something and then seeing it cheaper at a store just a few miles further down the road....

Good Luck and keep us posted on your thoughts with it.

here's mine....

frontiergander, the "Traditions Vortek Northwest Edition" has got that region covered...

check out the product description it clearly states the Following...

In order to meet state-specific regulations, the Vortek™ Northwest Edition is equipped with Williams™ metal fiber optic sights, has an exposed nipple and fires #11 percussion caps.

I just killed one with a Traditions Vortek. Awesome rifles and minute of angle accuracy. Works fantastic with Blackhorn 209 powder. I put a Bushnell Banner scope on it and it has held zero through about 400 shots. I played with it all summer long with my own cast bullets.

You cannot go wrong with this gun. I have the UltraLight in camo.

Here is the link to my harvest. Success
