was playing with this super slick 20 bore gas gun at one of our local gun shops. I couldn't believe the balance, fit and finish. From the Beretta/Benelli family of guns. This one was very slightly used, but in 99% LNIB condition. They are asking $849 for it. Anybody out there have experience with this gun!?!

Yes, the guns themselves are very strong and reliable, but they require more cleaning than a Beretta and just a little less cleaning than the 1100. The recoil is ultra light. To be honest, it's the nicest gas operated autoloader 20ga I've shot.

Why not wait with me for the A5;)

I am a firm believer in instant gratification. I recently purchased a 720 and can attest to the fact that it is a fine gun. Maintenance doesn't seem to be any more of a pita than other gas guns I own, and for me, the fit is perfect out of the box.
You might want to contact Ray Tanner at: http://www.tannerssportcenter.com/
for a price.
By the way, Franchi customer service is second-to-none.
