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-inch 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-inch 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-inch 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.”
