Franchi Introduces Affinity Elite Series

January 22, 2019

ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 22, 2019) – Franchi raises the bar for best-in-class features with its line of semi-customized Affinity Elite shotguns. Available in 12- and 20-gauge, Affinity Elite shotguns are built to withstand tough hunting conditions with a Cerakote and OPTIFADE camo finish. Upgraded bolt controls, sight, vented rib and superior ergonomics provide faster handling and target acquisition while upgraded chokes plus a lengthened forcing cone improve performance. Built on the proven Inertia Driven action, the Italian-made Affinity Elite shotguns come with three extended waterfowl chokes (Close, Mid, and Long-Range).
 
The Affinity Elite is available in a 12 gauge 28-inch barrel in either a 3 or 3-½ inch chamber and in 20 gauge with a 26-inch barrel. All models are available in OPTIFADE Marsh with burnt bronze Cerakote and OPTIFADE Timber with cobalt Cerakote.
 
The addition of an oversized and textured bolt handle and bolt-release button makes operation easier in cold and wet conditions. Extended Close, Mid, and Long-Range chrome-lined mobil waterfowl chokes increase adaptability and shooting performance for every shooting situation.
 
Franchi’s Affinity Elite series maintains the features found in the Affinity line including sling attachment points on the magazine cap and buttstock, an oversized loading port, ambidextrous safety, a ventilated and chrome-lined barrel and drilled and tapped receivers for the quick and easy mounting of optics and accessories.

The Franchi twin shock absorber (TSA) recoil pad reduces felt recoil for shooters while allowing length-of-pull adjustments to give shooters a near-custom fit and feel. An included shim kit also allows for drop and cast adjustments for increased customization and a precision fit, while the ergonomic pistol grip and streamlined forend deliver balance and superior pointability.
 
Like all Franchi semi-auto shotguns, the Inertia-Driven action is built to excel in the harshest hunting environments, delivering the most reliable semi-auto action available that requires fewer parts, less cleaning and less maintenance. The easily removable trigger group and recoil spring simplify maintenance. The Affinity Elite series comes with a best-in-class 7-year warranty.
