When you hear the word "traditions," what do you think of? If you're Traditions, the company known for its accurate, dependable and affordable muzzeloading rifles, you think of hunting the old way...with blackpowder that you've loaded yourself. But even traditional blackpowder rifles can use a touchup, and that's where the new Traditions Buckstalker XT comes in.

The first place to make an upgrade is the barrel, and the new Buckstalker XT boasts a Chromoly steel barrel. Chromoly steel has long been recognized as the best barrel material for strength and accuracy. This barrel allows the new smokepole to be lightweight, yet strong and accurate. The 24-inch barrel will still provide accuracy of 200+ yards.

Also new this year, the Buckstalker™ XT features the Elite XT™ trigger system. This system has a precise and accurate trigger pull, along with a rebounding hammer and manual cross block trigger safety. With upgraded features, the Buckstalker™ XT represents an excellent value at a modest price.

This value-packed muzzleloader has many features including a Dual Safety System, Accelerator Breech Plug which removes by hand and allows for use of loose or pelletized powder, Speed Load System, and more. The Buckstalker XT will be available in many configurations for 2021, including G2 Vista camo or black and various finish options, as well as scoped and non-scoped versions.

For those hunters in Idaho and Oregon, there is also the Traditions Buckstalker XT Northwest Magnum which will feature the musket ignition, open breech, and open sights required in those states. MSRP varies from $220 to $403 depending upon model chosen; Traditionsfirearms.com
