    I have one. It's a very nice rifle. It fits well, has excellent sights and shoots accurately. The checkering is superb and it feels like a quality rifle.
    It's also easy to take apart for cleaning. I've never had a malfunction with it and have run a variety of ammo through it.

    The trigger is a little on the stiff side, but one of these days I'm going to see if I can improve it.

    I was surprised to discover it doesn't have a butt plate. The stock has some grooves carved in the end, but no butt plate.

    Overall, I'm pleased with it. It's a high quality rifle and a definite keeper. They are, however, a bit pricey since they were only made for one year and there aren't very many of them out there. In fact I've never seen one besides this one.

    I bought this one to replace the Browning take down rifle I sold. I like this Franchi much better.
    It's not a Browning clone, by the way. It's a totally different design.

    Would I buy another? Definitely.

    BottomGun- thanks alot! This is the feed back I was looking for. The front sight looks like it's hooded and I like that.

    Ok so it's not a Browning clone. The pictures on the auction site arn't that clear.

    Thanks again

    QuarterBoreGunner,

    You're quite welcome. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you decide to give it a try.
    It's a class act.
