Item Description

Here is a Franchi model 48AL with Original Factory Poly Choke. Receiver and finishing manufacturer was Llama Gabilondo y Cia, S.A., of Vitoria, Spain. Barrel and parts manufacturer was Luigi Franchi, s.p.a., of Brescia, Italy. Choke Manufacturer was the Poly Choke Corp. of Hartford, CT. Barrel is import stamped on its barrel’s under side by Century Arms. From its XXII Italian Date Code, it was manufactured in 1966, the 17th Year of Production for the series. Type is John M. Browning design recoil operated semi automatic shotgun. Chambering is 12 gauge, 2 3/4 inch shells only, with adjustable friction ring mechanism for light to high powered shells. Construction is steel barrel, bolt, and internal parts all assembled into a lightweight alloy receiver group. Barrel is 28 inch including the Poly Choke. Choke Sight system is 13 post, .265 serrated top ventilated rib with brass bead front sight and serrated top receiver rear. Magazine tube holds 4 rounds of 2 3/4 inch 12 gauge shotshells, so 4 + 1 fully loaded capacity with no magazine adapter or plug. Mag spring retention is by a Remington type friction split ring retainer. Safety is guard mounted push button type, behind the .235 smooth faced steel trigger. Weight empty is 6 pounds 11 ounces, with center of gravity at the breech face. Overall length is 49 inches. Barrel finish is polished surface blued steel, with machine engraved white lateral, gloss black anodized upper receiver. Buttstock and forend are plain oil finish Italian Walnut, fluted forend and pistol grip type buttstock. Note the factory 1 inch permanent sling swivels on the mag cap and buttstock. Stock drop is the standard 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch, with a 14 1/4 inch length of pull from the trigger face to the end of the factory butt plate. Surface detractions are minimal, principally light occasional wood scours. We rate this Franchi as Very Good, perhaps even Excellent, 85 to 90 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. From the moderate wear to the shell carrier, we estimate this Franchi has been fired fewer than 400 rounds. Replacement pricing on this shotgun's nearest descendant, the Franchi Fenice, is upwards of $1500.00. We're offering the 1966 production Spanish / Italian Franchi in the photos, however, for only $ 459.00. 2% discount if payment is with USPS Money Order & not Credit Card. Any ammunition or personnel in photos are Not included. .
