Franchi Infuses Superior Ergonomics and Beautiful Styling with Instinct SLX

ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 21, 2020) – Franchi introduces the deluxe version of its popular Instinct SL line with the stylish and exceptional performance of the Instinct SLX. Pairing superior ergonomics with premium aesthetics, the Instinct SLX follows the Franchi tradition of producing fast, reliable and smooth-swinging guns for hunters and sport shooters alike.

These striking over/under shotguns boast features usually seen on expensive, high-end shotguns such as a cut-out locking lever, artistically engraved receiver with gold inlays, gold trigger and handsomely checkered AA-grade walnut Prince of Wales stock and Schnabel forend. The vented glossed-blue barrels are tipped with a red fiber-optic sight and extended choke tube to complete the overall aesthetic.

Available in 12-, 16- and 20-gauge offerings, the shotgun performs as well as it looks. The intuitive design provides a comfortable, instinctive feel to quickly get on target. A safety-mounted selector switch allows shooters to choose which barrel fires first. All-steel auto ejectors throw spent shells well clear. The Instinct SLX delivers an exceptional shooting experience in an heirloom-quality hunting shotgun.

The shotgun comes in its own protective custom-fitted case for safe transportation and is backed by a 7-year warranty.
