Power should be an asset, never a liability. The Affinity 3.5 feels and handles like a smaller-gauge shotgun while offering the full capabilities of today’s 3.5” shells. Together, Franchi’s Inertian Driven® system and TSA pad-which absorbs up to 50% of the recoil- translate into a pleasant shooting experience no matter the conditions. Handling is optimized thanks to the slim forend profile made possible by the recoil spring being efficiently housed around the magazine tube. The stock is also trim and includes an internal balance weight that can be removed to customize weight-distribution.
The Franchi Instinct L features an all-steel, extra-strong color-case receiver with the name ‘Instinct L’ engraved in gold on the right side. The distinctive receiver includes a tang-mounted automatic safety that also acts as a barrel selector. An attractive gold-plated trigger completes the Instinct L’s stylish look. The Prince of Wales style stock is cut from A-Grade satin walnut and features cut checkering on the slim forend and pistol grip. A traditional satin oil-finish complements the wood’s beautiful grain and protects the stock from the elements of weather.
