Franklin Armory is pleased to introduce the all new F 17-L, the first ever gas operated rimfire! With its debut at SHOT SHOW 2014, the early reception of this design has been very positive. The F 17-L features a direct impingement gas system with a rotating locking bolt that is very similar to the original Eugene Stoner design. This action is far safer and more reliable than the traditional blow back designs because of the 33,000 PSI this round produces. Since this rifle is chambered for the .17 Winchester Super Magnum Rimfire, it will be available for sale in every state of the nation. …even those with "Assault Weapon" bans!   The F 17-L will be ready for distribution in the second quarter of 2014.
