Looking at a Franchi Verona

582 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Light Modified
I'm looking at a Franchi Verona O/U with 20 and 28 ga barrel sets. Found it at Cabela's for what seems a good price, but I can't find this model on the Franchi website.

How does it compare to the Veloce and Alcione models?

I assume you mean Franchi Veloce. I bought a 20 gauge two months ago and I love it. It is however, very light, and will impart more felt recoil than a heavier gun. No matter, I bought it for chuckar and quail, not dove or clays. That's my only caveat. Higher-volume shooting, IMO, should be done through a heavier gun, say 6.5-8 lbs, unless your shoulders are immune to punishment.
