Has anyone seen the new Franchi 612 Defense? Any reports or reviews? I'm in the market to replace my Franchi LAW 12 which was stolen but don't want to pay $600 or more that they are going for. I can't seem to find any info on it and their website does not have anything about it( finish, mag cap, length etc.). I've gotten a little here and there but I kind of want to see what it looks like and maybe get an owners impression on it. I was quoted $450 by a local dealer but he did not have a picture of it.

Franchi 612..
Hi tuffmann,
I have a Franchi 612 ..I think I'm the only one in the forum:p
Anyway, I got mine for $349 + tax in one of our local retail store. so far ..no complains on my side, I used all kinds of ammo even the tactical low recoil shot and slug without hiccups. I have the
+2 extension,a tacstar shotgun light ,fiberoptic sight,and I used a 3M double sided industrial strength adhesive for putting a 4 shot side saddle and so far its holding strong. I hoped I help a little for yah..;)
here's their site:

Thanks Tacticaldude, Your price is more like it. What state do you reside in. I can't seem to find one much less a decent price on one. Do you think your retailer could get me one for the same price? I've been to the website but they have very little info and no picture.

BTW, mine was on sale and the original price was in the price range u were quoted.
Try this one for info:
Long Island Shooting center and call or email steve(this is where I got my +2 shot extension and I think they're selling the 612 too).
