PASS­ING MUSTER

American Survival Guide - - NEW PRODUCTS -

The Franklin Ar­mory Ref­or­ma­tion is one of the odd­ball ri­fles on the mar­ket to­day. While not le­gal in all ar­eas, it by­passes some of the restrictio­ns in state and fed­eral laws. The Ref­or­ma­tion is not a ri­fle nor a shot­gun. With the in­te­gra­tion of a straight-ri­fled bar­rel, it by­passes many of the firearms def­i­ni­tions and is placed into an "other" cat­e­gory. Like­wise, since it is not a ri­fle, pis­tol or shot­gun, many of the NFA reg­u­la­tions defin­ing short-bar­rel ri­fles do not ap­ply. Cur­rently, the Ref­or­ma­tion is the only gun of this type. De­spite the ben­e­fits, there’s a rea­son it stands solitary. Bal­lis­ti­cally, the Ref­or­ma­tion lacks the range needed in al­ter­na­tives of the same cal­iber. For ex­am­ple, a .223 fired from a ri­fle bar­rel of the equiv­a­lent length may reach out to 400 yards with lit­tle dif­fi­cul­ties. Re­gret­tably, the Ref­or­ma­tion starts pro­duc­ing keyhole tar­gets in as lit­tle as 50 yards.
