The Affinity Anniversario combines all the company’s past models: a simple glance is like travelling through the history of each model. With its engravings of stylized pheasant feathers, Franchi confirms its 150 years at the service of huntsmen. An orange F on the trigger bridge identifies the shotgun unmistakably as a Franchi product. The Affinity Anniversario establishes a new paradigm that combines ergonomic perfection, beauty, sophistication and practicality.The 12ga and 20ga Affinity Anniversario mechanism typically works according to the semiauto inertia shotgun, with the recoil spring housed in the forend. The Front-Inertia technology moves forward the balance reducing the muzzle climb. The rotating bolt head features two flaps, a bolt tang is housed within a cavity of the bolt, on the bottom of the cavity it is possible to find a strong main spring placed between the tang and the wall of the cavity. The bolt carrier, which serves as the inertial mass, is connected, through a pair of action bars to the action bar ring, mounted on the magazine tube featuring a spring coiled around the magazine tube itself. The thickness of the action bars was reduced thanks to a single U-shaped element welded to a ring sliding on the magazine tube. The forend is sharpened, easy and fast to grab.
