    looking for my first hunting shotgun and came across the Franchi...

    looking at either the Franchi Intensity or Franchi Affinity..

    anyone used or own one of these?

    thoughts? Reviews?

    I know theyre made by Benelli

    is it far less quality?

    ive heard these models are similar to older model Benellis...im new to this type of stuff

    enlighten me, please

    They are similar to Benellis from what I have seen with friends. My brother in law has one that is a nice enough gun but is problamtic when shooting light loads.

    They are fine for their price. I have a Franchi O/U and for the most part it works fine. It did give me a little trouble shortly out of the box with the O/U / Safety selector workings, but the LGS fixed it for me. Now I find myself treating it far too easy for fear of it malfunctioning again. If budget is a great concern for you, go for it, if not look at something different.
