Franchi Affinity has Small-Gauge Feel

Franchi Affinity has Small-Gauge Feel

The brand new Franchi Affinity semiautomatic shotgun was introduced Tuesday at SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Available in both 12- and 20-gauge, the Affinity receiver is made of a lightweight, durable aluminum alloy that's strengthened with steel inserts that ensure a solid steel-to-steel lock-up. The 12-gauge Affinity weighs 6.4 pounds and the 20-gauge is just 5.6 pounds.

Because it is Inertia Driven, the Affinity has the feel of smaller gauge guns without compromising the punch expected of the actual gauge, due to the recoil spring surrounding the magazine tube located forward of the receiver, which keeps recoil in line with the shooter and helps reduce muzzle climb.
