January 2023, Accokeek, MD – Since its introduction two years ago, Franchi’s premium predator hunter, the Momentum Varmint Elite, has become a favorite of serious long-range shooters and hunters. With its 1 MOA accuracy guarantee (when firing premium factory ammunition), the Momentum Varmint Elite has earned its skills from the prairies of the west to the swamps of the south and everywhere in between.
For 2023, the Momentum Varmint Elite returns with five chambers and a new camo finish. All Momentum Varmint Elite rifles now come with TrueTimber® Prairie pattern on the EVOLVED ERGONOM-X synthetic stock. This abstract pattern in muted greens, tans, and browns was originally developed as a waterfowl pattern, but has proven highly effective in a wide range of settings, from open grasslands to woodland. Also, TrueTimber® Prairie is the perfect visual complement to Momentum Varmint Elite’s Midnight Bronze Cerakote barrel and bolt handle finishes, minimizing field glare and offering superior weather protection.
As a long-range shooter, the Momentum Varmint Elite stands out in a crowded field. Out-of-the-box accuracy comes courtesy not only of the heavy-contour and rifled float barrel, but also other premium components like the 60-degree-throw DEPENDA BOLT and 2 to 4 lb. RELIA TRIGGER adjustable.
An ergonomic and adjustable stock system also contributes significantly to the high precision potential of the Momentum Varmint Elite. The cheek piece, TSA recoil pad (with up to 50 percent reduction in felt recoil), and removable checkered polymer grip offer custom fit options to best suit the shooter and hunting conditions. Additional features include a flush and extended box magazine, 5/8×24 threaded muzzle to accommodate a muzzle brake or suppressor, integrated QD sling/bipod mounting points, and a one-piece Picatinny rail for easy mounting. of the viewfinder.

- .223 remington
- .22-250 Remington
- .224 valkyrie
