In 1868, Franchi began manufacturing firearms in Brescia, Italy. From the beginning, their philosophy has been to provide quality products that meet emerging needs with continued innovation and new technology. Original ideas and expertise that make Franchi firearms distinctive are never compromised. Franchi has perfected the art of building firearms like the Affinity 3 Elite 12-Gauge 28" Shotgun, Momentum .300 Win Mag Bolt Action Rifle, Momentum 6.5 Creedmoor Bolt Action, and Momentum .308 Win Bolt Action Rifle. When it feels right, you know it. Franchi delivers that feeling on a regular basis.
