Franchi Expands Instinct Catalyst Line


Franchi Expands Instinct Catalyst Line with New 20-Gauge Offering

ACCOKEEK, Md. – (ArmsVault) – Franchi addressed the specific sizing and configuration needs of female shooters with the successful introduction of the Instinct Catalyst chambered in 12 gauge. Franchi expands this female-centric line of shotguns with the addition of a 20-gauge over/under 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.

Built from ground up to proportionally fit the smaller stature of female shooters and hunters, the Instinct Catalyst adopts specific cast, length-of-pull, drop and comb requirements for quick shouldering and a precise cheek weld. The shotgun provides a perfectly balanced feel to the most affordable over/under shotgun made specifically for women. Combining lighter weight, better feel and more responsiveness gives shooters a higher level of control over their shotgun, directly leading to more enjoyable – and successful – trips afield and to the range.

The Instinct Catalyst 20 gauge over/under features an A-grade satin walnut stock and forend, an all-steel, case-hardened receiver and gloss blue 26-inch barrel for a distinctive look. The tang-mounted safety doubles as a barrel selector. The Instinct Catalyst 20 gauge comes with three chokes (IC/M/F) and wrench and Franchi’s best-in-class 7-year warranty.
