There is nothing like a vintage Italian semi auto shotgun! New to us in a recent collection is a very nice condition vintage Franchi semi auto shotgun, similar to the model 48 12 ga shotgun with 28” barrel and chambered for 2 3/4” shells. The choke measures as modified. The aluminum alloy receiver only has a few tiny markings on it. The stock is over 80% condition with handling marks on the stock and fore end and a chip in the plastic buttplate. The barrel bluing is over 90% with a few handling marks and some very light patina too hard to capture in a photo. The action locks up nicely and the bore is shiny. These shotguns are getting harder to find, so add this one to your collection! happy bidding!
