Anyone else have a Franchi Falconet O/U? Good track record??

I have a 16 ga. w/26" bbl. mod & IC weighs next to nothing. My bird gun.

So far no mechanical problems but not confident about the aluminum frame. Tends to gall with the steel monobloc.

I have a 20ga mod/full, 28" barrels. I bought it used, and it does have a little galling on the receiver face. I certainly wouldn't want to use it for a high volume target gun, but it is great for upland hunting due to the light weight. I have had it for about 3 years, I think, and have been really happy with it.
