A Franchi rifle? Yeah, I’d never heard of one either, and for good reason: there never was one. Before 2018, I mean. Franchi has debuted their uber-ergonomic, 6.6-pound rifle in a handful of well-selected cartridges, including .243 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Win., .308 Win., .30-06, & .300 Win Mag. It sports a blued barrel with your choice of a threaded or non-threaded muzzle, 2- to 4-pound adjustable trigger and two-position safety, hinged floorplate, and a recoil pad that’s touted to be just awesome. The Momentum looks to be a quality working man’s rifle, and is also available in a 150th anniversary walnut-stock edition for the hunter who prefers a classic look.
