Traditions Vortec

Anyone have one or have reviews?  Seems like a nice gun, but thought I'd see what others know.

There are many comments here. Do a search. Some like them while others have had problems. I have one and LOVE it. A couple of others have said the hammer spring has broke and the hammer fell and fired off a round. I looked at several MLs and found the vortek to be the best for me. I have not had any problems whatsoever and would not trade it for anything else at this point. I guess its like anything, some work well and some dont. I bet there are a few out there that owned a Pinto and it never failed them. Just like I've had a T/C fail on me. I just didn't speak about it in public. Do your own research! Only you can determine what works well for you. Have fun and enjoy the experience of the research.
You can't fix stupid.

I work at wholesales sports and sell guns.I've heard more complaints then good things about the Vortex
I would really consider buying a differant muzzleloader,seems like there's lots of missfires in this gun among other complaints.I own a Austin&Halleck and a Knight bighorn, if I was looking for a muzzloader
I would really try to find a Knight bighorn they are still around you just have to look their great muzzloaders and I'm sure the new knight co. will be making them again if not there fools.
