Franklin Armory F 17-L AR15 Rifle

Franklin Armory has released three version of their F17 17WSM AR15 rifles, with one being a complete upper kit that can be used with your lower.   The Franklin Armory F 17-L AR15 rifle was the first semi-auto firearm chambered in the .17 Winchester Super Magnum rimfire cartridge.  Released in August of 2014, this AR15 rifle was developed with a unique gas-piston system to help reliability when shooting the dirty and sometimes finicky 17 caliber rimfire.  The F 17-L is built with Franklin Armory’s very popular Libertas Billet lower receiver and Libertas Billet upper receiver.  The only changes Franklin Armory made were to the adapt the barrel, bolt-carrier group, buffer and create a new, 10-round magazine to handle the .17WSM cartridge.  This rifle has many other features you would expect in a full-size AR15, which are listed below in the full specifications.
