Franchi Affinity Max-5 3.5 12 Ga 3.5″ 28″ Barrel


SKU: FRA41100 Categories: , Tag:

Power should be an asset, never a liability: the Affinity 3.5 feels and handles like a smaller-gauge shotgun while offering the full capabilities of today’s 31⁄2″ shells. Together, our Inertia Driven® system and TSA pad—which absorbs up to 50% of the recoil—translate into a pleasant shooting experience no matter the conditions. Handling is also optimized thanks to the slim forend profile made possible by the recoil spring being efficiently housed around the magazine tube. The stock is also trim and includes an internal balance weight that can be removed to customize weight-distribution.

Additional Information:

Evolved Ergonom-X

Franchi researched the five most common shooting positions to create an ergonomic stock offering optimal comfort and efficiency in each of them. Raised curves and crisp checkering work together to deliver a firm grip and steady aim in any weather.

Inertial Driven

The Inertia Driven system employed in the Franchi Affinity 3 and 3.5, affords these shotguns a lighter, slimmer profile for better handling. With no heavy gas cylinder under the forend, Franchi Inertia Driven shotguns balance and swing like a fine gun should.

Omni Stock Adjustable Fit

Stock drop and cast adjustability for a truly optimized shooting experience.

TSA Recoil Pad

A revolutionary design proven to reduce felt recoil up to 50 percent and make shooting more enjoyable. It also reduces flinching, which improves accuracy and allows for faster follow-up shots. Rounded edges minimize chances of snagging on clothing when the gun is raised to shooting position.
