NRA Gun of the Week: Franchi Momentum Rifle       

The Italian firm Franchi has had a rich history building firearms—dating back to the time of the American Civil War—but it wasn’t until 2018 that Franchi offered a bolt-action rifle tailored to the budget-minded, U.S. bolt-gun market. The rifle is built around a round receiver that is drilled and tapped for optics and a cold-hammer-forged, chome moly steel barrel that is smartly threaded for accessories. A full-diameter bolt utilizes three lugs for lockup, resulting in a 60-degree bolt throw. The standout feature is the rifle’s polymer stock. To find out more, check out our NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by Joe Kurtenbach.
