I was given my grandfathers 1967 Franchi semi auto 12g. he told me to use it as he would have. he bought it in 67 as a backup for his browning. Never been shot and he kept in oiled through the years. now i have it and have been doing my research on the friction ring assembly. i have the spring, the governor ring with the bevel towards the brass friction ring. there is a steel ring that i assume goes around the brass ring but i cant get it to fit over it. is it necessary? the brass ring is already pretty tight. thanks in advance!

On the two Franchi 48 AL see-automatics I have, there is a thin steel spring ring goes over the brass friction ring. It takes a little doing to get it in place; it doesn't go on easily. Try spreading it open gently with a flat blade screwdriver in the ring gap; just enough to get it over the brass friction ring.
