View Full Version : Traditions In-Line Muzzle Loader...Counrty of Origin??

The sales papers say "Imported". Does anyone know what country the Tradition's in-line muzzle loaders are made?

Last time I talked to Jay Bruno, Traditions marketing rep, he told me that they are importing their firearms from Spain.

The barrel of my Traditions flintlock is marked made in Spain. Dunno if the lock and stock are.

Interesting confluence of words;
"Traditions" and "In-Line Muzzleloader",
kinda like; "Jumbo" and "Shrimp". ;)

Yup, Spain is correct.

The Traditions muzzleloaders are made by Ardesa which is, indeed, in Spain. The complete guns are made there, not just the barrels.

DVNovum, the marketing director is *Jim* Bruno. You've probably got him a little confused with Jay Brenneman, the company president.
