Set to release this week at the NRA Annual Meeting in Indy is the new Traditions XBR Crackshot which is each a .22LR rifle and arrow launcher. The gun builds on the company’s Crackshot series of single shot, rimfire break action rifles and couples it with a second barrel technique applying the Traditions XBR upper that can be swapped out to fire arrows.

In its rifle format, the XBR Crackshot utilizes a 16.five-inch barrel with a .22LR chamber, ideal for modest game hunting and plinking. Weight on the lightweight rifle is just more than four pounds, creating it versatile adequate for a truck gun or teaching novices. It comes common with a factory-installed one particular-piece base for optics.

When swapping more than for archery, the XBR upper has an inner barrel coupled with an outer shroud that accepts the company’s Firebolt 2216 16-inch aluminum arrow via the muzzle. It is fired by a .27-caliber Powerload inserted in the breech. Traditions says the XBR can launch Firebolts to 385 FPS at a steady trajectory when featuring a low recoil and “emits a low decibel when fired.” It reportedly has a 70-yard helpful variety.

In arrow-launching format, the Crackshot XBR upper comes with a 4x32 scope mounted.
