Franchi has come out with three new models for 2012. The Instinct SL, L, and the Affinity!
Franchi’s Instinct SL over & under is a modern classic that combines the best of Italian tradition and craftsmanship with the latest innovative technology for the right look-the right feel. Available in both 12 and 20-gauges, the Instinct SL features an attractive polished aluminum alloy receiver and is available with either 26- or 28-inch barrels that are fitted with a red fiber-optic front sight for quick and positive target acquisition.
The Instinct L features an all-steel, extra-strong color-case receiver with the name “Instinct L” engraved in gold on the right side. The distinctive receiver includes a tang-mounted automatic safety that also acts as a barrel selector. An attractive gold-plated trigger completes the Instinct L’s stylish look. The Prince of Wales style stock is cut from A-Grade satin walnut and features cut checkering on the slim forend and pistol grip. A traditional satin oil-finish complements the wood’s beautiful grain and protects the stock from the elements of weather.
The sleek, perfectly balanced Affinity is a versatile Inertia Driven semiautomatic shotgun. Its slim fore end, light weight, precise symmetry and refined design allows responsiveness that only few shotguns in history can claim. The integration of form and function makes the Affinity a natural extension of the shooter. As soon as you shoulder the Affinity you instantly know it feels right and simply, when your gun handles like it’s second-nature you have the confidence to make shots that you might not have even tried before.
