Given to new products that display overall excellence, quality and innovation, the Golden Bullseye Award recognizes the Affinity 3.5 for it’s excellent reliability and function in the field.
“We are proud of being recognized by the NRA and its writers, editors and staff and acknowledged for our efforts to make the best shotguns possible,” said Timothy Joseph, VP of Marketing. “We strive to honor Franchi’s long tradition of fine craftsmanship while introducing new and innovative designs such as the Franchi Affinity 3.5.”
ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 22, 2019) – Franchi delivers best-in-class ergonomics and upgraded features in a beautifully styled over-and-under shotgun with the introduction of the Franchi Instinct LX. Available in 12 or 20 gauge, the Instinct LX combines Italian craftsmanship, American styling and Franchi’s rich heritage to produce a fast, reliable and smooth swinging gun for hunters and sport shooters.
The function of this shotgun is only outshined by its looks. An all-steel, case color hardened receiver displays engraved hunting scenes with inlayed gold birds, matching the gold-plated trigger. The overall aesthetic is enhanced with a AA-grade satin walnut Prince of Wales stock complimented by the Schnabel style forend and rounded pommel with cut checkering.
ACCOKEEK – Franchi marks a century and a half of firearm-making excellence with a pair of 150th Anniversary Limited Editions, which will only be available in 2018.
ACCOKEEK, MD – For many, the 16 gauge represents an ideal middle ground for all-around wingshooting. While it doesn’t possess all the power of comparable 12-gauge loads, it more than makes up for any such deficiencies by handling more like a 20 gauge. It’s this dynamic combination that makes the 16 gauge a popular choice for savvy upland hunters and many others.
The Franchi Instinct SL is a line of light, nimble and ultra-reliable over-and-under shotguns that now includes a 16-gauge option to go along with the previously released 12- and 20-gauge configurations.
ACCOKEEK, MD – Franchi addressed the specific sizing and configuration needs of female shotgun shooters with its introduction of the Catalyst line of shotguns. More than just the same shotgun with a shorter barrel and a youth-dimension stock, the Franchi Catalyst shotguns address the specific cast, length-of-pull, drop and comb requirements to suit the needs of female hunters and sport shooters.
Following the successful introduction of the Affinity Catalyst and Instinct Catalyst shotguns, Franchi is expanding this line of shotguns designed specifically for women with the addition of the 20-gauge Affinity semi-auto shotgun. The addition of the 20-gauge model allows female shooters the option of a field gun with less felt recoil and even more nimble handling.
ACCOKEEK, MD – Long known as a maker of instinctive and feature-rich shotguns, Franchi brings its rich heritage of Italian craftsmanship and innovation to the bolt-action rifle market with the introduction of Momentum.
Debuting in six of the most popular bolt-action calibers (.243 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Win. .308 Win., .30-06 Springfield, .300 Win. Mag.), the rifle is available in three configurations. For hunters who utilize supressors, the Momentum is available with a threaded, free-floating barrel, both by itself and as part of a rifle/optics combo. The rifle is also available with an unthreaded barrel.Read More
