January 2024, Accokeek, MD – Franchi’s Momentum and Momentum Elite — the first firearms built from the ground up to deliver the kind of ergonomic performance that is so essential for accuracy and to enhance shooter potential — receives a line expansion in 2024, with several models that provide new chamber, barrel, and stock color configurations.

The Momentum Elite, Franchi’s headliner bolt-action rifle for discerning big-game hunters, is now available in .30-06 Springfield and .450 Bushmaster chamberings. Both models come with a 22-inch free-float barrel dressed in Midnight Bronze Cerakote and are joined to a True Timber® Strata camo Evolved Ergonom-X stock.

Hunters who favor the more traditional uni-color stock and blued barreled action style will want to check out the three new-for-2024 variants of the original Franchi Momentum. This year, the Momentum is offered with 22-inch barrels chambered for .30-06 Springfield, .350 Legend, and the hard-hitting .450 Bushmaster. All three rifles are matched to Ergonom-X stocks in Hunter Gray.

Since their introduction, Franchi Momentum series rifles have earned the praise and respect of big-game hunters for their exceptional ergonomic fit, precision manufacturing, and factory-guaranteed 1 MOA accuracy when used with premium ammunition. Franchi engineers developed the Ergonom-X stock to be the most comfortable and best-fitting of any factory stock system, making it the perfect bridge between the shooter and the barreled action. In doing so, the Ergonom-X stock helps reduce shooter-induced shot disturbance and maximizes the rifles engineered accuracy for confident shot placement from any field position.

Additional features contributing to the Momentum and Momentum Elite series rifles’ exceptional performance include the crisp and adjustable Relia trigger group, robust, one-piece Dependa bolt with its short 60-degree throw, a free-floating, cold-hammer-forged chrome-molybdenum barrel, and a removable muzzle brake. Add in the plush TSA recoil pad for an up to

50% reduction in felt recoil and you have a rifle that is not only accurate but also comfortable to shoot and quick on follow-up shots.
