View Full Version : Franchi 20 ga question???

February 26, 2011, 09:52 AM
I have a Franchi 20 guage auto shot gun that I bought new in 1982. The last few years it has developed an issue with ejecting the empty. I feel kind of dumb but I can't tell what model it is. Is this something I'll need to take to the smith or can I fix myself???

Chances are it is a AL48, recoil operated auto. Could be any thing from dirt in the action to the friction rings in the fore arm.

Very nice light weight 20 gauge, fast handling gun, I don't think you can find a newer gun as nice as the Franchi.
