Franchi Delivers Fresh Look and Feel to Affinity Line with Affinity Elite Upland


ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 23, 2020) – On the heels of the successful Affinty Elite launch designed for waterfowl hunters, Franchi brings a fresh look and feel to the upland fields with the introduction of the Affinity Elite Upland. The shotgun’s new aesthetic complements the best-in-class features expected in a Franchi shotgun. The Affinity Elite Upland brings together functional design, lean dimensions and ideal weight and balance.

The Affinty Elite Upland’s receiver and barrel sport a Gun Metal Gray Cerekote finish for protection from the elements and abrasion while chrome accents underline the new aesthetic. The A-walnut buttstock features a TSA recoil pad for reduced felt recoil. The matching streamlined forend gives balance and superior pointability. Oversized and textured bolt controls along with an enlarged loading port make operation easier in cold and wet conditions. Extended and ported TruLock chokes combine with a Franchi Precision Cone for increased adaptability and shooting performance for every shooting situation.

Available in 12 or 20 gauge, Franchi’s Affinity Elite Upland maintains the features found in the Affinity line, including sling attachment points on the magazine cap and buttstock, ambidextrous safety, a ventilated and chrome-lined barrel and drilled and tapped receiver for the quick and easy mounting of optics and accessories. Length-of-pull adjustments and an included shim kit allow for increased customization for a precision fit between shooter and gun.

Like all Franchi semi-auto shotguns, the Inertia-Driven action is built to excel in the harshest hunting environments, delivering the most reliable semi-auto action available while simultaneous requiring fewer parts, less cleaning and less maintenance. The easily removable trigger group and recoil spring simplify maintenance when needed. The Affinity Elite series comes with a best-in-class 7-year warranty.
