Franchi Adds Left-Hand 20-Gauge to Affinity 3 Shotgun Line

January 2022, Accokeek, MD – Thanks to the ever-expanding crop of efficient, hard-hitting ammunition, serious shotgunners are increasingly tapping the 20-gauge platform to drop birds not only in the tight confines of flooded timber but also along the wide-open fields and in cattail country. Now, Franchi gives southpaw hunters their own sub-gauge option by introducing the all-new Affinity 3 Left-Hand in 20-gauge.


Franchi brought forth the Affinity series semi-auto shotguns a decade ago. This line has since grown to cover multiple hunting applications, and specific shooter needs—from waterfowl to upland game birds, turkeys to clays. The new Affinity 3 Left-Hand 20-gauge follows the previously released 12-gauge left-hand model, providing hunters who prefer the softer recoil and report of a 20-gauge no longer need to compromise with awkward loading and bolt manipulation, as well as spent hulls crossing their line of sight.


The Affinity 3 Left-Hand 20-gauge is built around the Inertia Driven action, with the ejection port and safety button positioned on the left side of the receiver. With its lighter weight, always-reliable operation, and gentle recoil manners, the combination Inertia Driven system and 20-gauge chamber make the Affinity 3 Left-Hand a comfortable all-day companion on the bird fields or the clays range.


The shotgun’s soft-shooting nature is further enhanced with Franchi’s TSA Recoil Pad, which reduces felt recoil by up to 50 percent. The Evolved Ergonom-X stock and Omni Stock Adjustable Fit system allow the shooter to adjust stock drop and cast for a precision fit. The Affinity 3 Left-Hand 20-gauge hits all the right notes for an easy-to-carry, fast-mounting, dependable-performing sub-gauge semi-auto.
