Franchi 612 vs opinions

Do any of you have information on the performance and reliability of the Franchi 612 VS shotguns?

OK here it goes. I have a Franchi 612 VS synthetic 24'' with internal chokes. So far (knock on wood) it has been reliable with all kind of loads. I primarily use it for skeet (and trap). Like most italin SGs of course the manual of arms is a bit different. Oleg Volk has a couple of threads on that, so you might want to do a quick search. It is nothing that you cannot get used to, though
It is a gas operated SG, mind you, unlike Benellis (inertia recoil system).
What else would you like to know

Stay Safe

Edited to add: If you want it as a HD SG, check also They are all the same group now....
