    Franchi

    My son asked me about a Franchi shotgun he saw for sale. It may have been the recoil operated instead of the gas operated. If any members here have some experience with these guns I would appreciate their input. I have a Browning A-5 humpback and I like it, not sure if everyone likes the recoil operated models. Thanks!

    I had a Benelli 121 M1 that was recoil operated. Anything less than #4 shot loads wouldn't cycle the action. Wanted to use it for 3 gun and we generally just use cheap trap loads - wouldn't work.

    Make sure it'll work with trap loads is my suggestion. If it'll work with those, it should work with anything.

    Is there any way to adjust it for light loads? Don't know for sure, but I think Remington or Winchester Semi Auto's have two different settings......or at least they used to. Bob
