Affinity 3 Catalyst

Function Meets Italian-Crafted Form

Take the popular Affinity 3, optimize it for women's physical structure and you get the Affinity Catalyst. No, it is not a renamed youth model, as is true with other brands; it is the result of a scientific study aimed to deliver professional-level-performance for women. The heart of the concept is the stock- drop, cast, pitch and length of pull. As a women's cheek-bones sit higher than men's, the comb is raised to achieve eye-alignment with no need to lift the head. Also, special cast makes it easy to shoulder. in all, the Affinity Catalyst will give women the feel and function that serious shooters expect of their firearms.

Evolved Ergonom-X

Designed from the ground up to provide optimal comfort in any shooting position.

 

Inertia Driven

The Inertia Driven system employed in the Franchi Affinity 3 and 3.5, affords these shotguns a lighter, slimmer profile for better handling. With no heavy gas cylinder under the forend, Franchi Inertia Driven shotguns balance and swing like a fine gun should.

TSA Recoil Pad
