Franchi Instinct LX, 12-Gauge


Shotgun Showcase 2019 Top-10 Pick:


This new addition to the Franchi Instinct line adds a splash of style to the group's functionality and comfort

By Rachel Hoveland

Franchi’s Instinct line of over-unders are known for quality at an affordable price. New for this year is the Instinct LX. Though similar to its Instinct L model counterpart in weight and length, the Instinct LX is designed to be the finer, more stylish addition to the line. The wood is upgraded to AA-grade walnut, the engraved receiver with gold game bird accents is eye-catching and the forearm is distinct: styled in curled, Schnabel fashion. 

Reviewers enjoyed the swing and balance of the firearm and gave this shotgun strong ratings for Style and Function, while also complimenting the price: “Easy, comfortable fit and classic styling—a handsome over-under for the price.”

Includes three extended choke tubes; available in 12-gauge or 20-gauge, both in 28-inch barrels.

MSRP: $1,699

Weight: 7-0
