Who has one and what are your thoughts ?
They can't be much of a shotgun with the resident shotgun netspurt over at another site fawning over it all the time.
I recently bought one with 28 inch barrel. I've shot one box of 2 3/4 inch shells and it shoots nice. It shoulders well and recoil is minimal. The long flat black rib creates a good sight picture. I look forward to shooting ducks and geese with it.
My XLR5 Sporting shoots wonderfully with it's tapered barrel going from .740 to .725 and the 5 chokes that came with it , does give me many options !
Thinking the Waterfowler should be a really nice gun with the same options , with any type of shot density , if it fits you ?
While it's a nice looking shotgun, for the price there are many, more proven waterfowl guns.
(I always thought Franchi was a value-priced brand. I guess not?)
You're right but even tho I have several (waterfowl) semi auto shotguns I continually grab one of my old 870's or Mod 12's , it's something about not
fooling around , when it comes to reliability in the marsh ! There's no thought about , what choke tube is in the gun as they're all fixed choked and even
tho they have 30" barrels , a reaction shot at a Teal buzzing the decoys is in great danger 80 % of the time .
I'm a believer , shoot what you shoot best and to refine it a little more , take time to use the patterning board !
