Not just Franchi.
These are government mandated codes for all Italian made firearms. Benelli, Franchi, Beretta, and so on.

Should have 2 letters inside a box or roman numerals prior to 1975. They will be on the receiver and the barrel.

Hello !

And four small stars over the Finito psf. I have used a magnifying glass but cant make out whats on the coat of arms.
Guess I've got a fluke !!!!!
Thanks again.

I have been looking for info on a Franchi that was given to me through a family member that had passed. After reading this it looks like it was manufactured in 1965, Which makes sense since they also gave me a hunting license from 1965.

Thanks for the info. My AL-48 was made in 1969, and still functions well.
