I am in the process of looking at 12g o/u shotguns. I found a Franchi, Alcione T that feels like it was meant for me. My one concern is that everything I've read about titanium shotguns is
that they recoil like mothers. True?

The Alcione Titanium has an aluminum receiver with a titanium insert in the standing breech for strength.

The gun will recoil no worse than other fixed breech guns of its weight.

What do you want the gun for? That will determine if this is a good idea or not.

It's a fixed breech, under 7 pound gun!!!! :roll: It will exibit recoil like a fixed breech, under 7 pound gun, Titanium has nothing to do with it except that it might be slightly lighter because of it.

Do you want it because it is "trick", do you want a gun that light? It's your call, other than shooting ultralight loads in it (which shouldn't be a problem) the only other way to lessen recoil is add weight.
