Franchi Instinct SLX Now Available in 28-Gauge

ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 20, 2021) – The Franchi Instinct SLX sits atop the popular Instinct SL line as the deluxe version for shooters who enjoy beautiful styling as much as performance and superior ergonomics. The heirloom-quality shotgun is now available in 28-gauge and follows the Franchi tradition of producing fast, reliable and smooth-swinging guns for hunters and sporting shooters.

These striking over/under shotguns boast features usually seen on expensive, high-end shotguns such as a cut-out locking lever, artistically engraved receiver with gold inlays, gold trigger and handsomely checkered AA-grade walnut Prince of Wales stock and Schnabel forend. The glossed-blue barrels are tipped with a red fiber-optic sight and extended choke tubes to complete the overall aesthetic.

Now available in a 28-gauge offering, the shotgun performs as well as it looks. The intuitive design provides a comfortable, instinctive feel to quickly get on target. A safety-mounted selector switch allows shooters to choose which barrel fires first. All-steel auto ejectors throw spent shells well clear. The Instinct SLX delivers not only an exceptional shooting experience, but traditionally elegant looks so handsome, you can’t help but want to show them off.    

The shotgun comes in its own protective custom-fitted case for safe transportation and is backed by a 7-year warranty.
