NitroFire & Firestick: Next-Level Muzzleloading System



Looks like “primitive weapons season” just got less primitive!

Earlier this year, we heard that Traditions–a leading muzzleloader manufacturer–was teaming up with Federal Premium to create an all-new (but still old-school) muzzleloading system. It’s called the NitroFire muzzleloader enhanced with Federal’s Firestick system, and it’s shipping to dealers now…just in time for “primitive weapons” season. But this ain’t your granddaddy’s muzzleloader.

The NitroFire is the only muzzleloader on the market that uses the Federal’s Firestick system. The .50-caliber rifle has a 26-inch ultra-light chromoly steel fluted and tapered barrel, 1:28” twist rifling, Dual Safety System, and many other features. One cool feature is the new Elite XT trigger system. The Elite XT™ trigger system is designed with a rebounding hammer and a manual cross block trigger safety.

Here’s how the system works. The Firestick is an encapsulated polymer powder charge filled with Hodgdon Triple Eight powder. Simply load your bullet from the muzzle, then insert the Firestick into the breech of the NitroFire rifle. The Firestick™ is impervious to moisture and has the same tight tolerances and quality controls as loaded ammunition.

Traditions President Tom Hall says “The NitroFire and Firestick system provides a safer muzzleloading experience which has always been a focus for Traditions. This system helps to eliminate the risk of accidentally over-charging your muzzleloader as well as increasing reliability and accuracy. The Firestick System combined with the features of the NitroFire truly make for revolutionary muzzleloader. We are excited to have the NitroFire in the marketplace.”

The MSRP for the NitroFire ranges from $549-$1202. For more information on the NitroFire® including product features, legality, and ballistics information, visit
