Franchi Expands Momentum Rifle Line with New Color Option and Adresses State Hunting Restrictions with Momentum Rifle Chambered in .350 Legend
ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 19, 2021) – Franchi now offers a new color option to its line of Momentum rifle line and also addresses certain states’ hunting regulations requiring straight-walled centerfire cartrides with the addition of the Momentum chambered in .350 Legend. The latest offering joins three popular calibers in the Momentum line including 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win. and .300 Win. Mag.
The most visually distinct feature of the Momentum rifle is its revolutionary stock. The stock combines raised curves and crisp checkering at strategic places along the rifle, delivering the most ergonomic feel and positive hold in the five most commonly used shooting positions. Sling-attachment points are recessed on the Momentum’s stock, eliminating the need for intrusive swivel studs. At the butt, the Franchi’s popular TSA recoil pad absorbs 50 percent of the rifle’s felt recoil with integrated contours to offer more comfortable benchrest shooting positions.
Momentum’s barrel is a cold-hammer-forged chrome-molybdenum with a matte finish and free floated for enhanced accuracy. The ends of the threaded-barrel configurations (5/8 x 24 thread) are protected by a knurled cover that is easy to remove when utilizing barrel accessories or supressors. The Momentum features a two-position safety, which allows the bolt to be operated when the rifle has been made safe. Franchi’s proprietary RELIA Trigger delvers a crisp break and can be adjusted from 2 to 4 pounds.
The rifle’s RELIA Bolt features a one-piece, spiral-fluted bolt with three locking lugs for solid lockup to deliver increased accuracy. The bolt has a short, 60-degree throw for faster cycling and is easy to disassemble when cleaning. Offering 4+1 capacity (3+1 for .300 Win. Mag.), the Momentum sports a hinged floorplate magazine.
The Momentum rifle chambered in 6-5 Creedmoor, .308 Win. and .300 Win. Mag. are now available in Hunter Gray along with Flat Dark Earth. The new chambering in .350 Legend will be available in Flat Dark Earth only.
