T/C Fire Storm Flintlock with In-Line Performance

 Thompson/Center announced a modern flintlock rifle with the hottest, most reliable ignition ever developed for this traditional style of muzzleloader. The Fire Storm is the first flintlock rifle designed for use with Pyrodex Pellets and the first to incorporate a removable breech plug for easy cleaning.

A truly modern flintlock, the Fire Storm is capable of handling magnum charges of up to three 50-grain Pyrodex Pellets, extending effective ranges to as much as 200 yards. The removable breech plug features T/C’s exclusive Pyrodex Pyramid, directing the ignition fire 360 degrees around the base of the pellet. As the pellets move forward, the flame is drawn up through the center of the pellets, creating a “fire storm” in the breech for reliable ignition. Loose FFg black powder or Pyrodex can also be used in the new rifle.

The .50-caliber Fire Storm incorporates performance features shooters would expect in a modern-style, in-line rifle. It is equipped with click- adjustable steel sights fitted with Tru-Glo fiber optics for accurate shooting in low-light conditions. Its 26-inch round barrel with one-in-48-inch twist is fitted with a massive recoil lug to assure solid and consistent barrel lockup. Like other Thompson/Center muzzleloaders, the barrel includes T/C’s unique QLA muzzle system for easy and precise bullet alignment. It is designed for exceptional accuracy with roundballs or lead conicals.

The finish of the action and barrel is blued with a traditional floral design on the coil spring lock. It is fitted with a lightweight Rynite stock, giving it an overall weight of only 7 pounds. Overall length is 45 inches.

Suggested retail price of the Fire Storm flintlock rifle is $376, and it is backed by Thompson/Center’s lifetime warranty.
