Franchi Affinity for sporting clays?

#1 Post by Maccabee » Mon Apr 02, 2018 8:23 pm

I’m new to the sport and in the process of finding a shotgun that fits me well. I went to Cabela’s today to shoulder a few models and found a lightly used Franchi Affinity that felt very comfortable.

Whatever gun I end up with will be used primarily for sporting clays and will probably have 1000-1500 rounds put through it per year.

I’ve read a few mixed reviews about the Affinity as a sporting clays gun, but was wondering what you all might have to say about it.

Thanks.

No direct experience, but it looks like the same inertia driven system that Benelli and Stoeger use (owned by Benelli), so should be pretty solid.

From what I have read on other forums, it’s not great for sporting clays. Lighter gun means more kick, susceptible to the “Benelli click”, and a couple other minor complaints. Most say great field gun, not so much for clays.
