What put the Franchi Momentum Elite Varmint at the top of the review list for NRA's most exacting shooters? In this video review, the Franchi Momentum Elite Varmint proves it deserves its spot as NRA Gun of the Week.

This bolt-action beauty boasts what the company calls its EVOLVED EGONOM-X synthetic stock. Purpose-built for varmint hunting, it comes complete with a removable cheek rest and removable checkered-polymer grip. The heavy fluted barrel is also ideal for stalking those sharp-eyed predators with a weather-resistant, glare-reducing, Midnight Bronze Cerakote finish. 

This iteration of the Franchi Momentum Elite family is a bit heavier than other models, which helps devour recoil. A proprietary TSA recoil pad swallows another 50 percent or so of that felt recoil. Franchi’s RELIA TRIGGER adjusts from 2-4 pounds for precision shooting. Chambered in five of your favorite varmint (and big-game) rounds, the rifle is available in 6.5 Creedmoor, .224 Valkyrie, .223 Rem., .308 Win., and .22-250 Rem. MSRPs begin at $999; FranchiUSA.com
