Does anyone happen to know what the differences between the Instinct Sporting (no longer available, discounted to about $1200--by far the cheapest non-Turkish shotgun with an adjustable comb) and the Sporting ii (~$1600ish--tied with the FAIR Carerra One for second-cheapest, but starting to approach Cynergy CX pricing) might be, other than a rebrand? The basic features SEEM to be pretty similar, though info on these guns is pretty sparse.

Thanks!

I'd like to know the difference too. I just came home with the Sporting ll. Due to rain and generally raw weather, I can't pattern it until tomorrow. I'm anxious to shoot it.

I just spoke to Franchi and the difference is that the Sporting ll has ported barrels and an adjustable comb.

Exactly, that's why I went with the sporting model . A fellow trap shooter has the basic Instinct { 12 ga } and does very well with it. A quality gun for a lot less $$

Franchi Sporting II is great for clays. I have mine for a year now. Probably close to 3-4000 rounds thru it. No problems. I think the porting makes it shoot a bit softer.
It was a good fitting gun at a good price point for me. The only issue is I found (coming from a semi-auto)

1) A tiny bit of 'creep' in the trigger before the gun goes bang. I have been told this is part of how Italian inertial triggers generally feel

2) There are times where I have to hold the barrels down to keep the breach open enough to get the lower barrel round in. The gun seems to not want to stay all the way open for loading.

Otherwise, it breaks clays pretty good.

I've got a pretty low round count so far on mine, maybe several hundred at best, I've got the same issue. Not a real hassle but worth mentioning. Aside from that, I love the gun.

Last week, I shot my first 3 rounds of trap since late last fall { winter weather hiatus } and this old fart did ok { not great } after the long lay-over. The Franchi Instinct Sporting shoots better than I do....quality gun for a reasonable price !
