posted on August 25, 2019

While it may have Italian roots, the Franchi Instinct LX over/under shotgun is a beauty in the eye of any American hunter. With gentle curves on its AA-grade walnut furniture, subtle engraving, detailed inlays of classic American game, and a balance and swing that’s deadly on birds and clays—what more could you want? How about a price tag that nearly every hunter can smile at? Learn more about it in the video embedded above, hosted by Executive Editor Jon Draper. MSRP: $1,699; franchiusa.com.
