Christensen Arms Ridgeline FFT Wins Ballistic’s Best Readers’ Choice Award

Gunnison, Utah – (January 12th, 2023) Christensen Arms, manufacturer of state-of-the-art precision firearms and carbon fiber barrels, is proud to announce their world class Ridgeline FFT (Flash Forged Technology) rifle has won the Ballistic’s Best Readers’ Choice Award in the “Best Bolt-Action Hunters” category.

To achieve a Ballistic’s Best Readers’ Choice Award, Ballistic’s staff of writers and editors evaluated around 60 different companies. They looked at firearms across multiple categories, firing literally thousands of rounds downrange. They then used their full scoring system, judging features such as accuracy, reliability and more. The very best performer from each and every group was nominated for awards. That list didn’t cater to advertisers or any such business. It’s all about the guns that they believed their readers want to own and shoot. Once the nominees were chosen, the readers voted on the very same groups the pros tested out on the range to determine the winner in each category.
