HERE'S A LIGHTWEIGHT, BEAUTIFUL ITALIAN SHOTGUN FROM THE BERETTA/BENELLI FAMILY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE. IT WEIGHS 1-1/2 LBS LESS THAN OTHER GUNS... THAT'S THE SAME WEIGHT AS A DOZEN MORE SHELLS IN YOUR VEST!
ABOUT THIS MODEL:Best known as one of the lightest autoloaders around, the 6.9 lb Franchi 48 AL is ideal for walking and carrying. The reliable action does not use gas to cycle the action but is based on John M. Browning's famous long recoil design, used in the Browning Auto-5. In 1993, Franchi was acquired by Beretta and is a division of Beretta's Benelli brand.

Normal (minor) edge wear on barrel, trigger guard and ejection port; barrel and receiver are 99.999% mark and ding-free except (one pin-sized mark on bottom of barrel.) A few minor dings on stock. Excellent 96-97% condition.
