BoJack Posted March 15, 2008 Share Posted March 15, 2008 :confused:This post is directed more toward Franchi owners, but I posted it here because I was curious as to what Benelli owners thought also. As I have said in previous post I have owned a few Benellis never had a problem with any except for the occasional hiccup to be expected. My brother bought one of the Franchi I-12s when they first came out about three years ago I loved the way the gun fit and felt, but he had cycling problems with it and got rid of it. I have a SBE2 camo that I use for hunting, but I have been wanting a non camo black synthetic gun for skeet and sporting clays. I was in Dicks one evening and saw a Franchi I-12 for $639.00 I said to myself surly by now three years later they must have worked the bugs out, they wouldn't still be selling I-12s that still have problems, well I thought wrong! I put over 500 rounds threw it and had the same cycling problems everyone else has had with this gun. I sent it back to Franchi its been gone about two weeks they said I should get it back in about four weeks. My point and question is this, first and foremost have they fixed the bugs in the newer I-12s or are they still putting brand new defective guns on the market? Second, if they knew there was a problem with this gun and they did, why did they not recall them ,fix them and then put them back on the market? I don't understand why they would put there reputation at risk. They may have saved a little in the short run, but I feel they have hurt themselves in the long run. Any one else's opinion would be greatly appreciated Sincerely, Proud owner of a brand new defective I-12:confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
