ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 23, 2020) – Upland and small-game hunters need shotguns as nimble and quick as the quarry they pursue. Franchi’s extra light and ultra-reliable Instinct SL line now includes 28-gauge and .410 options to quickly get on target and make the shot. The classic over/under Instinct SL series brings modern reliability and performance together with fine, classic styling to provide exceptional shooting comfort, reliability and pride of ownership.  

A classic over-and-under shotgun, the Instinct SL series combines the best of Italian craftsmanship with modern innovation to produce a shotgun that mounts, points, swings and performs. Weighing in at 5.2 and 5.6 pounds, respectively, and with 28-inched polished blue barrels, the Instinct SL sub-gauges sport a distinctive polished and brushed aluminum receiver, keeping the shotguns’ lines clean and elegant. Paired with the A-grade satin walnut Prince of Wales stock, the Instinct SL models are beautiful hunting shotguns that demand to be used.
