This has to be one of the best deals on the market right now. This 20g Franchi Instinct over-under has modern stock dimensions, a reliable single trigger, and screw-in chokes. It looks like it’s built on the same proven triggerplate-style action that a lot of modern Italian OUs use.
Sure the wood’s plain and the stock’s a bit chunky through the hand, but if I take my eyes off the trees and look at the forest, I see a darn nice shotgun. If you check out this review, you’ll see that other people agree: Review in Field & Stream
