Franchi 720 shotgun

The Franchi 720 is a semi-automatic shotgun chambered in 20 gauge. Since 1868, Franchi has been designing and manufacturing double-barreled and semi-automatic shotguns for sportsmen.

It uses a gas-operated blowback system, which uses some of the gas produced in firing the shotgun to drive the bolt backwards.

Features include a Twin Shock Absorber (TSA) recoil pad that compresses with the recoil, absorbing the kick and spreading the energy over the shooter’s shoulder. The 720 has a lightweight alloy steel receiver and steel barrel putting it around 6 pounds.

The 720 comes with a synthetic stock with Advantage Max-4 HD cammo finish.

Franchi recommends the 720 for hunting waterfowl.
