ACCOKEEK, MD –-( Brand new from Franchi comes the Instinct L, a modern classic over & under shotgun that combines the best of Italian tradition and innovative technology in a single handsome shotgun.

Ushering in a new beginning for Franchi is the Instinct’s innovative line of fast, reliable over & under shotguns incorporating all the finest features that makes the Instinct L feel right.

Whether you’re a clay shooter or a bird hunter, the right feeling begins the instant you pick up the Franchi Instinct L. The Instinct L weighs in at a little more than six pounds, providing perfect balance and allowing for smooth-swinging action on fast-moving targets or birds. Bring the gun to your shoulder and swing it to know the feeling that this gun’s performance in the field will equal success.

Available in both 12- and 20-gauges, the Instinct L features ejectors and an all-steel, extra-strong,

case-colored receiver with the engraved name “Instinct L” inlaid with gold on the right side. The distinctive receiver includes an automatic tang-mounted safety that also acts as a barrel selector. A single gold-plated trigger completes the distinctive look of the Instinct L and facilitates quick reliable shooting. Instinct barrels are chrome-lined and proofed for steel shot and come with fiber-optic front sights.

The eye-catching Prince-of-Wales style stock is cut from the finest Select A-Grade satin walnut and features cut checkering on the slim fore-end and pistol grip. A traditional satin oil-finish compliments the wood’s beautiful grain and protects the stock from the weather. The Instinct L comes cased in its own deluxe hard-shell, custom-fitted gun case.

Franchi is dedicated to building exceptional shotguns that let passionate hunters and shooters perform at their best. Utilizing quality materials and exacting craftsmanship, Franchi proudly issues an industry-leading 7-Year Warranty for the Instinct L.

“The Instinct L has the fit and finish that makes it feel right,” said Stephen McKelvain, Benelli USA’s VP Marketing & Sales. “Striking in looks, innovative in design and weighing a little more than six pounds, the Instinct L makes tracking fast flying birds seem as easy as pointing your finger.”
