Franchi I -12 looking for opinions...


Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying the Franchi I-12 and wanted to see what anyone who has one thinks.

I really like the Benelli SBE 2 and M2 but there is a big price difference between that and the Franchi I-12.

Is the Franchi a good gun? how does it compare? How is the recoil?

I am looking to buy a 26" barrel 12 gauge.

I own an I-12 and I really like it. Price was a determining factor for me also. It handles well and operates flawlessly. This past Saturday I had the opportunity to take it goose hunting for the first time and managed to limit out with no problem. I trap shoot with it as well and don't notice any recoil problems at all. Arguably, it's not as nice as a SBEII or an M2, but for the price I don't think you can beat it.
