My girlfriend bought a brand new Franchi AL 48 20 ga. from Scheels in September 2010 (3 months ago) as her first shotgun. The gun has had no more than 250 shells through it (on the first day one box of shells at clay birds, 1 dove hunt, 2 chukar hunts, and 3 duck hunts). After every trip out into the field I cleaned it, so it's well taken care of mechanically. There are just a couple pin-head size divots in the butt of the stock, but besides that the stocks are in great shape. If you're an upland hunter, this gun clobbers chukar, and had no problem dropping dove.

Originally she had bought the gun for dove hunting, but decided she wanted to try duck hunting. She fell in love with it, but struggles to connect on birds at long distances with 20 ga. 2-3/4" shell. Plus most shot shell companies don't load 20 ga. 2-3/4" with any shot larger than #4 and they are usually $15 or more. Anyway, she just bought a new Franchi AL 48 12 ga. to get a little more power. When she upgraded to the 12 ga. we tried to sell the 20 ga. to Cabela's and to Scheels and the most we could get for it (before they turn around and sell it with a 30% mark up) was $400 (purchased at $750 brand new).

Hoping to get $500-525 for it (what Cabela's would sell it for at it's used state) or best offer. We will pay for the shipping, and shipping insurance, etc. and have every intention to make an honest trade.

Please email me at tbranzell@hotmail.com if you are interested.....I check my email often throughout the day and will respond promptly.

Inquiring minds need to know:

1) What is the barrel length ?

2) Does the barrel have a fixed choke (what choke), or choke tubes ?

3) If tubes, what choke tubes are included ?

Thank you.
