ACCOKEEK, Md. (January 25, 2018) – ( – Franchi addressed the specific sizing and configuration needs of female shotgun shooters with its introduction of the Catalyst line of shotguns.

Following the successful introduction of the Affinity Catalyst and Instinct Catalyst shotguns, Franchi is expanding this line of shotguns designed specifically for women with the addition of the 20-gauge Affinity semi-auto shotgun. The addition of the 20-gauge model allows female shooters the option of a field gun with less felt recoil and even more nimble handling.

The new Franchi Affinity Catalyst 20 gauge semi-automatic shotgun brings Italian craftsmanship and perfectly balanced feel to the most affordable intertia-driven shotgun made specifically for women. Combining lighter weight, better feel and more responsiveness give shooters a higher level control over their shotgun, directly leading to more enjoyable – and successful – trips afield and to the range.

Featuring an A-grade satin walnut stock, the Affinity Catalyst 20 gauge comes with three chokes (IC/M/F) and wrench and Franchi’s best-in-class 7-year warranty.
