#SundayGunday: Traditions Deerhunter

posted on April 25, 2021
This week we're taking a closer look at the Deerhunter .50-caliber muzzleloader from Traditions Firearms. A classic design with some modern twists, the Deerhunter is available as either a percussion sidelock, or the flintlock variant we're showcasing here today. Fully adjustable Williams Fiber-Optic Metal Sights and a rugged synthetic stock make this an accurate and reliable, yet still quite primitive hunting gun. For more information on this stalwart muzzleloader, check out the video embedded above, hosted by Digital Associate Editor David Herman. MSRP: $329; traditionsfirearms.com.
