Year-End Review: Most Notable Shotguns of 2012 (Page 2)

Looking for a new shotgun? Here are eight offerings from 2012 that stand out from the crowd.

Franchi Affinity (2013 Golden Bullseye Award Winner)
Franchi’s new semi-auto, the Affinity is a sleek, ergonomic gun. Unlike the gas-operated guns Franchi has rolled out in recent years, the Affinity sports an inertia-action. No, it’s not quite the same as the one employed by sister company Benelli (despite what you may have read on other websites), but it’s proven a reliable one nonetheless. For my taste, no shotgun feels more like an extension of self than one that puts my fingertips close to the barrel. The Affinity does exactly that—this is a gun I can shoot.

Technical Specifications:
Gauge: 20 or 12
Chamber: 3”
Barrel Length: 26” or 28”
LOP: 14 ¼”
Weight: 5 lbs, 10 ozs. to 6 lbs., 8 ozs.
Price: $849 to $949

The Weatherby PA-08 combo, 'For under $500...' has the base price listed at $549! The CZ-USA 712 ALS was being shown at the Pheasant Fest, and with its adjustable stock, it might function well as a trap gun for a scholastic clay team.
