Franchi’s other entry in the Catalyst line is the Affinity semiauto. Light and handy, it should make an excellent field gun. At just 6 ¾ pounds it’s light for a 12-gauge gun, which will make it easy to carry and handle, although the tradeoff will be a little more recoil. The Affinity is an inertia-operated semiauto, meaning that it uses recoil and not gases bled from the gun’s action to eject and load shells. Inertia guns are very reliable, even in bad weather, and they are quite easy to clean. The gun comes in 12 gauge only, with a walnut stock, soft recoil pad, and choke tubes. The Affinity will shoot anything from target loads to turkey loads. MSRP: $999.
