Franchi Affinity 3 Companion Series Releases 2020 Edition


ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 22, 2020) – Known among American shooters and hunters for both its durability and versatile nature, the Franchi Affinity 3 receives an aesthetic update honoring the bond between hunter and hunting companion. The latest Affinity 3 Companion Series shotgun depicts a German shorthaired pointer in an emblematic hunting scene engraved on the nickel-finished receiver. Complemented by a AA-grade satin walnut stock and forend, future offerings of the Affinity 3 Companion Series will include English setters, Boykin spaniels, Brittany and others.

Available in both 12 and 20 gauge and chambered for 2-3/4 and 3-inch shells, the Affinity Companion Series’ performance is as good as its looks. Large bolt controls and a wide loading port provide easy operation with gloved hands. The chrome-lined barrel sports a vented rib and pattern-enhancing, extended Mobil-threaded chokes. Inertia Driven technology teams with a TSA recoil pad to make the Companion a joy to hunt with and shoot. An included shim kit also allows for drop and cast adjustments for increased customization and a precision fit, while the ergonomic pistol grip and streamlined forend deliver balance and superior pointability.

Like all Franchi semi-auto shotguns, the Inertia-Driven action is at the heart of the Affinity 3 Companion Series, delivering the most reliable semi-auto action available while simultaneous requiring fewer parts, less cleaning and less maintenance. Built to excel in the harshest hunting environments, when Affinity 3 shotguns do require cleaning, the trigger group is easily accessed with the removal of a single pin while the recoil spring is housed in the magazine tube where it can be easily reached.
