Franchi’s Affinity 3.5 is a Playskool-style shotgun. With its oversized charging handle, bolt release button, trigger guard and loading gate, running the gun is child’s play. Which is just as well . . .

considering how GD cold you can get when you’re waiting for winged targets to grace you with their presence, while your fingers turn to flippers. The Affinity 3.5 is one glove-friendly shotgun.

I love how easy it is to swing the inertia-driven front-weighted shottie and the recoil-absorbing TSA pad. MSRP starts at $1029, more for cam0 models.


  1. Pricing on this one seems really high, compared to prior models, and considering that they compete with Stoeger as well as the bigger guys. Even the Winchester SX4 is far less money, and it’s a gas gun .

  2. Heh. Those are 3Gun shotgun mods on a bird gun. It’s funny those kind of improvements seem to always trickle down/up.
