Your Franchi

Esprit is the noble shotgun par excellence where style and tradition are at the service of the art of the hunt


Side by Side Shotguns

Esprit is the perfect side by side shotgun for all types of hunting: from hares to pheasants, from grey partridges to partridges.

Its round body steel receiver is well-proportioned with the gauge, it is hard color cased without engravings. This goes with an English style stock (365 mm lop) made with selected oil finished walnut, fine checkering pattern and a classic red rubber recoil pad. The single mechanical selective trigger is gilded and the shooting system, on the rear of the receiver, consists of internal hammers placed on coil springs with a safety double-slider mechanism and safety button with the first barrel’s selector under the opening key. The Franchi Esprit in its 12, 20 and 28 gauge versions features 62, 68 and 71 cm long barrels; for the .410 gauge version only the 71 cm barrel is available. Each one of them is provided with interchangeable chokes *,***,****. The rib is concave matte and the sight is silver spherical. The .410 ga Franchi Esprit weights 2.45 kg, the 28 ga version 2.4 kg, the 20 ga version 2.6 kg, the 12 ga version 2,9 kg. Left-handed stock and double trigger are also available. All Franchi shotguns have a seven year warranty on mechanical parts.
