Franchi's excellent line of upland guns starts with the I-12 Upland Hunter (shown here) that uses the Benelli-style inertia operating system. In walnut and blued steel, it has the company's excellent TSA recoil pad and interchangeable choke tubes.
The Franchi 48 AL is made in 20 and 28 gauge, the 28 gauge weighing but 5.4 pounds. They come complete with interchangeable choke tubes, and there's a youth and ladies model. The Renaissance over/unders come in 12, 20 and 28 gauge, and a 20/28 combo. The Destino boxlock side-by-side has a single selective trigger and straight grip, with only 250 made each year.
