Instinct LX

Italian tradition and Fine Craftsmanship

A shotgun represents something different to each hunter. For some it’s simply a tool. For others it’s an extension of their personality and passion. Still more think of it as a functional work of art. Satisfy your desire for something more in a shotgun with a beautifully crafted Instinct LX over/under from Franchi. It pairs superior ergonomics with deluxe old-world features to deliver exceptional function and striking good looks. Engraved gold birds and accents contrast perfectly with detailed engravings on the color cased-hardened receiver, and pair exquisitely with the rich AA-grade, oiled-walnut Prince of Wales stock and Schnabel forend, and black extended chokes. When you absolutely must have something more in a firearm, look no further than the Instinct LX line of shotguns.
