Franchi AL 48

Field & Stream Online Editors

The AL 48 semi-automatic exemplifies the natural pointability of Franchi shotguns that bird hunters have always valued. The 28-gauge AL 48 is particularly handy because it is built on a true 28-gauge frame, making this gun ideal for grouse, doves, woodcock, and quail. The AL 48 uses a long-recoil action built to handle 23¿¿4-inch loads. While this shotgun is not new, Benelli USA's appointment as the sole North American importer and distributor of Franchi shotguns is. The suggested retail price of the AL 48 28-gauge is $667. % 301-283-6981; www.benelliusa.com
