2019 SHOT Show: The Rifle That Shoots Bullets and Arrows

Imagine getting your very first .22 rifle, and then learning it also shoots arrows. That's what's possible in 2019, my people.

Traditions Performance Firearms had possibly the most original product at the 2019 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 22-25. It’s a .22 caliber rifle that also shoots arrows.

How does it work? 

According to an interview by FTB TV (featured above), the Tradition’s Crackshot rifle can transition to shooting arrows using an upper that's built for the firearm’s frame.

“You transfer the upper onto your Crackshot frame,” says Allison Hall, a marketing manager for Traditions Performance Firearms. “The package comes with optics and three arrows. If you look down the barrel, there is an interior barrel on the inside of the shroud.”

In the video, Hall gives viewers a look at the interior barrel and illustrates how it works. “The arrow is pulled forward out of the barrel instead of pushed from behind, so shooters will get better trajectory,” she says. 

Accoring to TFB TV, the Crackshot archery package will be available in May 2019 in black for $449, or in Kryptec Highlander reduced camo for $499. All Crackshots will come with a Traditions 4x32 scope already mounted on the upper, as well as 3 firebolt arrows. 

Extra Firebolt arrows will go for $29.95 for a 6-pack. Powerloads will go for $24.95 per 100.  

About the Crackshot .22 Rifle

The Crackshot is a single shot, .22 caliber break action rifle with a 16.5-inch barrel. It's a lightweight rifle, coming in at just over 4 pounds.

Traditions considers the Crackshot an ideal choice for those looking for a truck gun or for beginners. It’s often used, too, for plinking and small game hunting. The built-in extractor makes removing a cartridge easy and the checkered stock provides a better grip.
