Editor’s Choice: Franchi Momentum All-Terrain Elite

Franchi gains traction in its Momentum bolt-action rifle line with the All-Terrain Elite model. Featuring a free-floated 18" barrel, flip-up iron sights and an optic rail that extends well past the receiver ring, the All-Terrain Elite is aimed squarely at the general-purpose/scout-rifle/truck-gun crowd.

Its three-lug bolt offers a 60-degree throw for rapid manipulation, and feeding is by way of an included Magpul AICS 10-round magazine or by four- or eight-round proprietary units, depending on chambering. Initially, that choice is either .223 Rem. or .308 Win., which can handle 5.56 NATO and 7.62 NATO, respectively, as well.

Other features are: a chromed, spiral-fluted bolt; an adjustable, single-stage trigger; a 5/8x24 TPI-threaded muzzle and included brake; a rear-aperture, front-post iron-sight set; interchangeable buttpads and cheekpieces; and M-Lok accessory mounting points on the fore-end, along with QD sling sockets fore and aft.

The action is finished in Midnight Bronze Cerakote, and the stock sports True Timber Strata camouflage. For more information, visit franchiusa.com.
