Default Franachi Renassaince

last weekend, I went on quail hunt. Got to try several O/U. The typicals Citoris, red label, beretta, etc. But one stood out to me. Franachi. It was dead light, pointed well, seemed like top quality.

Anyone have one? Any experience?

Thanks for the update. Still can't decide. You got the resaleof a Citori field or lightning, but would have to buy used or could spend 1100-1200 for a Franchi. And they have a 200 dollar rebate right now.

The one I shot was an auto, not sure what model. I've never saw an O/U Franchi, can't find info on their website either, just the pic on the homepage...

I like the "brand", but not a fan of their butt stock !

Imagine trying to cut that down to shorten the LOP.

A buddy of mine owns one of their SxS - nice gun for the money !

The spelling is Franchi and it's pronounced fran-key.

Now that's a turkey killer !!!


See the new style butt stock; looks like the first cynergy's.

Too "funky" for me; so I have the classic stock on my cynergy.

I'm only 5'6" so I almost always get my stocks shortened and a new pachmayr decelerator pad put on.

You'd need a jig saw for those others. LOL !
