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

Double-barrel shotguns tend to be expensive. But that doesn’t mean you can find nice ones for very fair prices — including brand new ones.

Just look at this 20g Franchi Instinct over-under.  It’s is brand new OU with 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. And from what it says over on Franchi’s website, it  weighs in at just dog whisker over 6lbs – just right for a 20g. When it comes to a good gun for a fair price, those features pretty much check all the boxes.
