The I-12 series from Franchi has a shotgun model for nearly any kind of hunting. The I-12 with black synthetic stock is an excellent all-around shotgun. Every I-12 Franchi shotgun is powered by the Inertia Driven System. That means no bulky gas cylinders, valves, pistons, or hardware. Without that extra baggage, the I-12 has a slender, low-profile fore-end that fits the shooter's hand for comfortable handling. The I-12's specially-designed recoil pad incorporates a two-part system called the Twin Shock Absorber (TSA). During firing, the TSA recoil pad initially holds its shape and then deeply compresses with the recoil, soaking up the kick and spreading recoil energy over a wider area of the shooter's shoulder. The Franchi 1-12 shotgun with the TSA recoil pad has up to 44% less recoil than the competition.
