ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 19, 2021) – Franchi has long delivered best-in-class ergonomics and upgraded features in a beautifully styled over-and-under shotgun with the introduction of the Franchi Instinct LX. Combining Italian craftsmanship and American styling, the Instinct LX is now available in the nimble and recoil-friendly 28-gauge for a smooth-swinging gun for hunters and sport shooters.
The function of this shotgun is only outshined by its looks. An all-steel, case color hardened receiver displays engraved hunting scenes with inlayed gold birds, matching the gold-plated trigger. The overall aesthetic is enhanced with a AA-grade satin walnut Prince of Wales stock complimented by the Schnabel style forend and rounded pommel with cut checkering
Glossed-blue barrels with extended choke tubes deliver optimal patterning while the vented rib with a red fiber-optic front sight keeps shooters on target. A safety-mounted selector switch allows shooters to choose which barrel fires first. All-steel auto ejectors throw spent shells well clear. The shotgun comes with extended choke tubes: improved cylinder, full and modified chokes, as well as a choke wrench for easy exchanges.
The Instinct LX is an heirloom quality hunting shotgun that performs as well as it looks. The shotgun comes in its own protective custom-fitted case for safe transportation and is backed by a seven-year warranty.
