After changing the muzzleloading industry in 2020 with the introduction of the NitroFire® in collaboration for Federal Premium and Hodgdon, Traditions is excited to announce the next innovation – the NitroFire® with the VAPR™ Twist.

Introduced for 2022, the award-winning NitroFire® will now feature a 1:24” VAPR™ Twist barrel. The faster twist helps to better stabilize bullets, increase accuracy, and expands the bullet options that can be used.

The NitroFire® is available in .50 caliber and has a 26” Chromoly steel fluted and tapered barrel. The NitroFire® is also equipped with Traditions® Elite XT™ trigger system. The Elite XT™ trigger is a crisp, clean breaking trigger optimized for hunting and features a rebounding hammer and cross block trigger safety.

As the first and best muzzleloader on the market that uses the Firestick system, the NitroFire® has now been elevated to a new level with the 1:24” VAPR twist barrel. The MSRP for the NitroFire® with the VAPR™ twist ranges from $549-$699.

Ryan Nicholas, VP of Sales, says “Traditions® is leading the charge when it comes to muzzleloading and the introduction of the NitroFire® with the VAPR™ twist is the next evolution of this outstanding platform. The NitroFire® and Firestick™ system by Federal Premium has proven the last two years to truly make muzzleloading safer, easier, and more reliable and now by adding the faster twist, we’ve made the NitroFire® even better.”
