ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 20, 2021) – Known for its reliability and smooth swing, the Franchi Affinity line of shotguns has accompanied hunters into the field in search of waterfowl and upland birds for years. Hardcore turkey hunters can now rely on the dependable Affinity platform to hunt elusive turkeys with the introduction of the new Affinity Turkey shotguns in 12-gauge or 20-gauge.
Turkey hunters rely on their gear to perform in the field and the Affinity Turkey shotguns shine with the dependable Inertia-Driven System with fewer parts for ultra reliability with minimal cleaning and maintenance needed. The trim profile and 24-inch barrel facilitate hunting in heavy woods where turkeys love to hide and makes it quick to shoulder mount. Turkeys’ razor-sharp eyes require superior concealment, but the Affinity Turkey shotguns’ Mossy Oak Bottomland camo covers the shotgun buttstock to the tip of the barrel.
The stock features a pistol grip for a sure hold while an oversized bolt handle and bolt release provide easy operation even with gloved hands. The enlarged loading port allows for quick reloading. The front fiber-optic sight is shrouded with a hood cover for protection while the receiver has been drilled and tapped for the addition of after market optics.
A modular trigger assembly removes from the receiver easily for cleaning and two sling attachments deliver hands free transportation. Extended turkey and extra-full turkey chokes are included for quick changing as conditions dictate. The new Franchi Affinity Turkey shotguns’ turkey-centric features make this the perfect turkey shotgun for any diehard turkey hunter.
