Franchi’s Intensity Receives Outdoor Life’s Editor’s Choice Award


Franchi’s Intensity, a 3 ½-inch semi-auto shotgun, received Outdoor Life’s Editor’s Choice Award for Shotgun of the Year at the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Indianapolis, IN. Each year Outdoor Life’s Editor’s Choice Awards are given to those products that score the highest overall in their category.

Franchi’s Intensity is a reliable Inertia Driven shotgun that Outdoor Life ranks as extremely good value in respect to both workmanship and performance. Available in either 26-, 28-, or 30-inch barrel lengths the Intensity features a ventilated raised rib, red fiber optic front sight and comes with a choke wrench and three choke tubes, including full, modified and improved cylinder. The Intensity is available in black synthetic, Realtree Max-5 and APGX and Mossy Oak’s Bottomlands camo patterns. Standing firmly behind every Intensity, Franchi offers an industry-leading seven-year warranty.

“To earn an Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice award-which goes to the rifle and shotgun with the highest overall score in the gun test-is quite an accomplishment,” said John Snow, Outdoor Life’s Shooting Editor. “The Franchi Intensity has not only withstood the demanding rigors of the test, but also excelled in every category we rate-design, performance and price-value.”
