The new Franchi Affinity Turkey Elite comes ready to hunt in 12 or 20 gauge.
 Comment(s)

For some of us, there are two types of people in this world: those who chase turkeys, and those who do not. For the obsessed former, the new Franchi Affinity Turkey Elite certainly scratches a lot of gobbler itches.

The Affinity Turkey Elite impresses with models available in both 12 and 20 gauge. The 3-inch shotgun sports several high-performance features as well. And the camo finish makes it out-of-the-box ready to hunt.

The heart of the shotgun is the famous Benelli-style Inertia Driven System. It uses fewer parts and remains ultra reliable. From goose hunters to 3-gunners, the Benelli system remains the most popular by those who truly abuse a shotgun.

The Affinity Turkey Elite sports oversized bolt controls and an enlarged loading port. That helps hunters when using with gloved hands. A 24-inch barrel sports a trim profile, according to Franchi. The shotgun sports OPTIFADE Subalpine camo, a versatile pattern for concealment. A Midnight Bronze Cerakote receiver and barrel match the stock.

The Affinity Turkey Elite delivers precision cone patterning, according to Franchi. Included Rhino extended Turkey and Extra-Full Turkey chokes help get shooters on target. Ported and extended, the Rhino chokes swap out quickly. Each delivers a unique, optimized pattern for changing hunting conditions.

The shotgun comes with an adjustable, fiber-optic rear sight and hooded, fiber-optic front sight. A Picatinny rail sits atop the receiver for mounting optics. A slight attachment enables hunters to bolt on their favorite sling, leaving hands free for gear and decoys. For even more info, please visit franchiusa.com.
