12-Gauge - A-Grade Satin Walnut

Starting Price


The Italian tradition and craftsmanship of the Franchi Instinct series, fully re-imagined in an innovative, affordable, 12-ga. over & under built specifically for women. Like its sister, the Affinity Catalyst, our Instinct Catalyst's stock has been redesigned with a drop, cast, pitch, length-of-pull and grip length that better aligns with a woman's body. Red, fiber-optic front sights put eyes on target quickly and confidently, with a calssic, A-Grade satin walnut finish that just looks right, as well. Much more than just a shorter stock dressed in pink, this is a shotgun that immediately feels right in the hands and on the shoulder of today's female shooters.
