MORGAN HILL, Calif., - -( Franklin Armory, maker of quality MSR firearms, announced today that their F 17-L chambered .17 Winchester Super Magnum will begin immediate shipment on August 20, 2014.

Compared to the 5.56 NATO cartridge, the .17 WSM obtains similar velocities with long range accuracy that most varmint hunting and target shooting enthusiasts desire.

The addition of a brand new gas piston system, developed in partnership with Osprey Defense, adds increased reliability and decreases cleaning requirements.  Because the .17 WSM is a rimfire cartridge, it is not classified as an “Assault Rifle” in most states.  In California, the F17-L is distributed with a standard magazine release button!

The Franklin Armory F 17-L platform is based on a traditional modern sporting rifle with a few key distinctions.  The rifle’s buffer was custom made to match the lighter recoil and shorter stroke length of the .17 WSM.

The patent pending bolt carrier group is based on the original Eugen Stoner design of a rotating locking bolt, but is cut differently to facilitate the custom sized magazine feed lips and the pistol length gas piston system.  The carrier is also notched to have a fully functional forward assist.  The Free float, tripod mountable handguard has provisions for installing a bipod stud and Magpul M-LOK accessories.

    1. And once again a rifle made for the selected few, $2000 is way beyond most people’s budget, for 2 grand I could buy a very nice AR-15 and a top of the line scope.
