Specs: .50-caliber break action • 28" barrel • 6.25 lb. • Drilled and tapped for scope and comes with Williams fiber-optic sights
The Lowdown: For 2013, Traditions also introduces a hammerless break-action design, which functions much like the LHR's, improving lock time and allowing for lower scope mounting. The gun has a fluted, chrome-moly barrel and an alloy frame, both with a Premium CeraKote finish; a toolless Accelerator breech plug; and a butt pad that slides off to provide storage. The two-stage trigger has some creep and mush but breaks consistently at 2 pounds 13 ounces. Groups averaged 2.5 inches.
Hits: Sleek and light. Breech plug removal is a snap. Great price.
Misses: Worst trigger, but not awful.
Who Should Buy: The hunter looking for a solid, no-hassle, innovative in‑line at a low cost.
