Franchi’s 712 and 720 create a diverse line of stylish, modern shotguns for every hunting challenge.
Today’s shotgunner won’t just make do with one “old reliable”. He demands hunting arms tailored precisely to the game and its surroundings.

The retail prices for the new 712 and 720 models will range from $750 for synthetic, to $815 for WeatherCoat™ walnut, to $855 for either Advantage® Max-4 HD™ or Timber HD™.
