Instinct Sideplate

Italian tradition and Fine Craftsmanship

Franchi’s first sideplate-style shotgun hearkens back to a time when European gunsmiths crafted the most elegant firearms in the world. Sleek lines, lustrous wood, fine engraving and gold inlays combine to make this one of the most beautiful shotguns you’ve ever laid eyes on. The receiver is color-casehardened steel featuring exquisite engraving with gold inlay to match the gold-plated trigger. The Prince of Wales stock and Schnabel forend are AA-grade walnut with checkering to ensure a firm grip. A red fiber-optic front bar on the ventilated rib atop handsome 28-inch glossy blued barrels lets you get on target quickly. Five extended screw-in chokes are included. Shoulder a Franchi Instinct Sideplate to experience its instinctive pointing and smooth swing. You’ll understand why a Franchi just feels right.
