ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 23, 2020) – Sport shooters have long looked to Franchi for superb performance alongside beautiful styling. The Franchi Sporting line melds these two coveted features with their Affinity Sporting and Instinct Sporting II shotguns, now available in 20-gauge versions for clays shooters. The 20-gauge options have been completely redesigned around the 20-gauge shotshell with a properly scaled receiver, stock and barrel.
Designed around the Inertia Driven system for lightning fast handling and superior performance, the Affinity 3 Sporting shotgun comes with a host of shooter-friendly features. A ported barrel teams with the TSA recoil pad to soften recoil for all-day shoots. The semi-auto shotgun features an oiled A-grade walnut stock and forend. Pairing a white anodized receiver with chrome accents and trigger with matte blue barrels and knurled extended chokes, the Affinity 3 Sporting in 20 gauge creates a distinctive sporting appeal.
The Instinct Sporting II shotgun has all the features a clays shooter expects. Perfectly balanced, the shotgun echos the shooting comfort offered by all Franchi shotguns. The beautiful over/under boasts A-grade satin walnut adjustable stock and Schnabel forend that perfectly complements the scalloped steer receiver with gold trigger. The ported gloss blue barrel is tipped with knurled extended chokes for easy removal and replacement. The Instinct Sporting II in 20 gauge blends style and performance for clay shooters of any level.
Both shotguns are backed by a 7-year warranty.
