Introducing the 2016 Franchi Instinct Catalyst

Introducing the 2016 Franchi Instinct Catalyst

When one thinks of a gun designed for a women today, they probably automatically think of some crazy purple color scheme or pink with camo. The Instinct Catalyst from Franchi USA isn't your stereotypical women's gun.

Franchi Pro Staffer Alex Brittingham shows off the beautiful Instinct Catalyst. 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.

The Instinct Catalyst 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. A traditional satin oil-finish complements the wood's beautiful grain and protects the stock from the elements of weather.


Whether you're out in the field chasing birds, competing, or just out having fun; the Instinct Catalyst is one over/under you ladies MUST check out.
