How do you unlaod the mag on these things ? My best guess is to press the button on the side of the reciever , push a shell partway in hold the ramp in an pull the shell out , is there an easier way ?

Press the bolt/carrier release button on the side of the reciever. Push the carrier into the reciever, on the side you will find the shell release lever, this operates when the gun cycles to feed a new shell on to the carrier. Press it in toward the side of the reciever and a shell will feed from the magazine. Remove all shells as they come from the magazine one at a time. Good luck, there is much information on different forms about the Franchi. Seems some people really like the shotgun and won't part with them. And some dislike them completely, they trade them off asap. Good luck Tf
