Anyone have any experience with the Franchi long recoil guns? One of my mates here has an old model 11 on the browning pattern. I love the way it shoots, but it is getting pretty worn (been around a long time!).

the AL48 in 20 ga is one of my favorite bird guns. Light, well balanced and for me points like a dream. Franchi's long recoil is a time tested system that works and the quality ,imho, exceeds the much vaunted Benelli. Yes I know they are the same company now but the Franchi does not seem to have the quality control problems of the Benelli.

We send more Benellis in for warranty work than all other makes combined. To further add insult to injury, Beretta's service dept sucks, on a good day, and I haven't heard of any good days.

A fellow Officer has one in mint codition. I have tried to get him to sell it to me. No luck yet! I have shot it though,it would make a good bird gun. He got it at a flee market for $150.00 bucks.
