Traditions Introduces Two Cutting-Edge Realtree Firearms


A leader in the muzzleloading industry, Traditions™ Performance Firearms is consistently on the forefront of innovation as evidenced by its latest two Realtree models – the Crackshot, which gives you two guns for the price of one, and the NitroFire, the only muzzleloader on the market that uses the new FIRESTICK from Federal Premium®.


The relationship between Traditions and Realtree has spanned over many years and the partnership only grows stronger. Realtree was the first camo pattern I ever wore when I began hunting! We’ve included Realtree patterns on many of our product lines and those items with their patterns continue to be some of our top-selling items.

-- Alison Hall, Traditions marketing manager



In business for more than 35 years, Traditions has continuously provided quality, value and performance in each of its products. The Traditions team, which is comprised of hunters and shooters, is focused on developing products that enhance time and performance in the field. Although it’s known as the muzzleloading expert, Traditions™ has expanded its product line to include a full line of accessories, cartridge rifles, single-action revolvers, and new Realtree camo items like the arrow-launching Crackshot™ XBR and the new NitroFire™ muzzleloader.   


The Traditions Crackshot XBR Package in Realtree EDGE Camo single-shot rifle comes with the XBR™ Upper, which can be swapped onto the rifle to fire arrows.


Traditions Firearm Realtree EDGE Crackershot Package

The Crackshot single-shot rifle in .22 caliber with a 16.5-inch barrel is lightweight, easy to carry and ideal for small-game hunting. When you swap on the XBR upper, its 20-inch barrel allows you to shoot a Traditions Firebolt™ arrow, changing your platform into a whole new gun. Slide the hollow end of the arrow over this inner barrel until it reaches the end of the barrel. The inner barrel is protected by an outer shroud which also protects the shooter.


With the gun pointed downrange, simply load your arrow, break open the action and put in a Traditions XBR Powerload. Close the gun up, take the safety off, cock the hammer and then fire at your target.


The Crackshot XBR fires a 16-inch aluminum Traditions 2216 Firebolt™ Arrow, which can travel up to 385 FPS and is paired with a Traditions XBR Powerload in .27 Caliber Long. The Crackshot XBR has an effective kill range out to 70 yards, low recoil and is low decibel.


This package comes with the Crackshot .22 caliber rifle, the XBR™ upper in .27 caliber long in Realtree EDGE Camo with a 4x32 scope mounted, and (3) Traditions™ Firebolt™ Arrows with 100-grain field tips.


Traditions™ Firearms has partnered with Federal Premium® and Hodgdon® Powder to create the new NitroFire™. The .50-caliber muzzleloader has a 26-inch ultralight chromoly steel-fluted and tapered barrel, 1:28-inch twist rifling, Dual Safety System and much more. The NitroFire™ is also equipped with Traditions™ new Elite XT™ trigger system, which is designed with a rebounding hammer, a captive half cock and a manual cross block trigger safety. The Elite XT™ trigger system allows the action to be broken open with the cross-bolt safety engaged, so you can load or unload your muzzleloader and view the chamber.
