Instinct L Catalyst

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.

Instinct SL Catalyst

A brushed-aluminum receiver makes this the lightest adult shotgun in the Franchi offering, making it perfect for fighting fatigue on all-day hunts. Every element of the stock and grip, along with the trigger pull, has been optimized to fit female shooters. A red, fiber-optic front sight helps line up targets fast, and a barrel selector switch lets you choose which barrel fires first. Auto ejectors throw spent shells clear and the safety automatically engages when the action is opened. A classic, A-Grade satin walnut finish adds to the beauty of this fine firearm. Extended choke tubes included for fast, easy changing.
