I noticed that the website doesn't show any over/unders. This is a little perturbing since I bought my Alcione T less than a year ago. I would've guessed they'd leave the alcione/veloce models on the website until they're ready to release the names and photos of the replacement lines. I'm glad I bought both 12/20 barrels up front and I like the gun, but buyer's remorse may set in if they walk away from their U.S. over/under lines.
Does anyone know anything about the Franchi Artistocrat? After seeing the Franchi website I did a quick search on gunbroker.com and only found 4 alciones for sale, but many listings pertaining to parts for the Aristocrat. I've never heard or seen anything about this gun.
I've been checking the franchiusa.com site every so often to see if the new ones are there yet, but...... nothing so far. That's interesting about the I-12 recoil pad. I guess they are going to have a more "contemporary" look than the Alcione/Veloce line- I'm sort of partial to the classic look the Alcione has.
I had a chance to shoot the "Renaissance" a couple of weeks ago at the DU great outdoors festival. VERY nice piece.Comes up well and is relitively light. One small thing I would like to see changed is the rounded pistol grip,it just seemed a little too small for my hand.
