I have and love an Aspire 410, Being the guy I am , I say why not have a 28 ga also

The 28 Aspire seem hard to find, so I found an Instinct L in 28

Anybody have experience with them, and know the difference?

Franchi's response was, " nothing in the internal workings" , but that still doesn't
tell me what is different

If you have an Aspire for sale I'd talk

I think the Aspire line was priced too high in the Beretta family of guns. It listed for about $2,300 and a Beretta Silver Pigeon 1 at the time was the Aspire was being sold was $2,250! I did not try one but it supposedly was a nice piece. I am not sure if Franchi made these or they were OEMed by another manufacturer. The Aspire was replaced by the Instinct 28 and 410, L and SL line, at a significantly lower price point, around $1,400 list. The Instinct is definitely not made by Franchi, but by Bettinsoli in Italy.

they only made the Aspire in 410, and 28

but now make the Instinct in 410, 28, 20, and 12

I was not aware that they farmed out the manufacture. I handled an Instinct and found it
similar to the Aspire, but didn't have them side by side for comparison.

I hunt almost exclusively with sub's, so wanted the Franchi 28,

thanks for the input
