Franchi USA Has an Affinity for Lightweight Guns

Franchi USA this year trots out its brand-spanking-new Affinity autoloader, available in both 12- and 20-gauge models with either 26- or 28-inch barrels. The Affinity features an inertia-driven action and is chambered for 3-inch shotshells. The recoil spring encircles the magazine tube (located in front of the receiver), which keeps recoil in line with the shooter and helps reduce muzzle climb. The 12-gauge with the 28-inch barrel weighs in at only 6.9 pounds, while the 20-gauge with a 26-inch barrel checks in at a slender 5.8 pounds. Barrels come with a raised-vent rib, red fiber-optic sight, and interchangeable choke tubes in full, modified, and improved-cylinder. The synthetic stock is available in black, Realtree MAX-4, or Realtree APG.

Those looking for another 20-gauge option should check out the Franchi 48AL in its Deluxe Prince-of-Wales version. This autoloader comes with an aluminum receiver, chrome-lined barrel, and three screw-in choke tubes. franchiusa.com
