Product Description
The Franchi I-12 represents a new line of Franchi auto-loaders by incorporating a free-floating bolt with the Inertia Driven System. The I-12 is well-balanced, and features a narrow-profile fore-end and buttstock. This Franchi shotgun will handle anything from 1-1/8-ounce target loads to the heaviest 3" magnums. 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. 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, reducing felt recoil by up to 44%. The I-12 in Max-4 HD is an ideal choice as a waterfowl gun. This variant also features a 28-inch ventilated rib barrel, and a red-bar front sight and includes a set of screw-in choke tubes.

    Comments about Franchi I-12 Shotgun:

    My brother introduced me to the Franchi. It is a lighter, sleeker, less recoil, version of the old belgium hump back 12 gague. This gun comes up and points and swings like a addition of your body, after dropping into the mud and wiping off it will devour any type of shell and as many as you want to feed it. I hunt in the swamps of Louisiana and if you dont want your gun to be a concern this is the one you are looking for. I have had all major brands made and hunted with them. This one is so far above any other in all aspects its makes you wish you had picked it first. From throwing buckshot, to duck, to turkey, it has never hung up not once even after being dropped in the mud and having icy mud in the action. IT DOSENT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS ONE.

      Comments about Franchi I-12 Shotgun:

      I had this shotgun for a few weeks and have shot about 400 shells through it already shooting clays. I haven't had one single problem with it and have been extremely impressed by its overall abilities. Accurate, lightweight, and the TSA recoil system really works.

      Comments about Franchi I-12 Shotgun:

      Bought this gun off the bargain table at Gander in Flint Michigan. No idea why it was there would have paid full price for it. Got it home...stared at it. Love this gun, smooth shooting. The recoil system is out of this world. Put 4 boxes of shells through it day after i bought it, at work next day doesn't feel like I shot at all. Fiber optic front sight is great for acquisition of clays and birds. Light weight durable. Only issue was when loading gun shells would sometimes not load correctly. This problem went away after 3 box of shells. Probably just break in. Friend said his Benelli did the same thing.

      Great gun. Love the inertia system. Great recoil pad. Didn't cycle continuously with target loads for the first about 100rds. You just have to break it in. Only thing is it doesn't come with a case.
