Traditions Firearms Crackshot XBR – Arrow Launching Rifle
Traditions Performance Firearms announced the Crackshot XBR rifle in January at SHOT Show. This arrow launching rifle made some waves for its unique design but is now close to shipping.
What exactly is the Crackshot XBR? Well, it’s actually two rifles in one. The Crackshot has been available for some time and is a single shot break open 22. The package comes with a 16.5″ 22lr upper and the XBR upper that launches Traditions Firebolt arrows.
This upper has an inner barrel that is protected by an outer shroud. Simply slide the hollow end of the arrow onto the inner barrel and push down until it meets the end of the barrel. The Crackshot XBR uses a Traditions Firebolt 2216 arrow that is 16” aluminum. Next, break open the rifle and place a Traditions XBR Powerload .27 cal in the chamber, close up the gun, remove the safety, and then fire at your target.
The Crackshot XBR is extremely accurate and can reach up to 385 FPS. The arrow is pulled from the front instead of pushed from the rear so the arrow maintains a steady trajectory. This gun has low recoil, is lightweight, and a low decibel when fired.
