View Full Version : Problems with a Franchi?????

The shotgun is a Franchi AL48 Hunter, it does not chamber a new shell when fired shell catches in the port, using 2 3/4 in brass all factory. Any ideas? hotdog:confused:

What sort of shells (load wise) are you using? The jam you describe is usually due to inadequate power. Two possible reasons (of several) are light loads or carbon build-up in the gas system. (it is gas operated - right? :) )

I think that Franchi is recoil operated, like the A-5. Is there any adjustment possible by reversing the friction rings? That may be the prob.

Dave is right she is recoil operated I checked the friction rings and changed the position,also ordered new recoil spring. Will see if that is the problem. I'll post after firing, thanks for the input.hotdog:confused:
