Since its introduction two years ago, Franchi's premium predator buster, the Momentum Varmint Elite, has become a favorite of serious long-range hunters and shooters. With its 1-MOA accuracy guarantee (when shooting premium factory ammo), the Momentum Varmint Elite has earned its chops from the western prairies to the southern swamps and everywhere in between. 

For 2023, the Momentum Varmint Elite returns with five chamber offerings and a new camo finish. All Momentum Varmint Elite rifles now come with the 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 to be highly effective across a broad range of environments, from open grasslands to woodlands. Furthermore, TrueTimber Prairie is the perfect visual complement to the Momentum Varmint Elite's Midnight Bronze Cerakote barrel and bolt handle finishes, which minimizes glare in the field while offering superior weather protection. 

As a long-range shooter, the Momentum Varmint Elite stands tall in a crowded field. Out-of-the-box accuracy comes courtesy not only from the fluted and heavy-contour free-floating barrel but also other premium components like the 60-degree throw DEPENDA BOLT and 2- to 4-pound adjustable RELIA TRIGGER. 

An ergonomic and adjustable stock system significantly contributes to the Momentum Varmint Elite's high accuracy potential as well. The cheekpiece, TSA recoil pad (with up to 50-percent reduction in felt recoil), and removable checkered polymer grip offer custom fitment options to better match the shooter and hunting conditions. Additional features include a flush and an extended box magazine, 5/8x24 threaded muzzle to accommodate a muzzle brake or suppressor, integrated QD sling/bipod mounting points, and a one-piece Picatinny rail for easy scope mounting. 


The Momentum Varmint Elite is available in the following chambers: 

  • .223 Remington 
  • .22-250 Remington 
  • .224 Valkyrie 
  • 6.5 Creedmoor 
  • .308 Winchester 

MSRP: $1179
