Were the Franchi 912's so good of a gun no one wants to get rid of them, or so bad no one bought them. I have been searching for one for 2 years and have not had one show up. Does anybody have and shoot one?

Not many were made. Beretta took the design for the extrema. You might also look for a Dick's Diamond. It was a rebadged 912.

They are great guns. 612 is more common. Same gun but with 3"chamber.

How are they such great guns when the same thing breaks on both? confused2

If I wrote this about a remington, comments would of been to throw it away and buy a real gun.

The Franchi Affinity is a good gun too. Bought one last year and ran about 1,000 rounds thru it with no problems, light and heavy loads. Lightweight interia gun with very little parts to clean.

I have no complaints about them.

I had a different model Franchi and the barrel broke while shooting bird shot. Got it exchanged for a brand new one at my local Walmart.

Yes, that is what you should do with the Remington

I have a 712 and absolutely love it. Not sure about the 912 but if it's anything like the 712 j can see why they are hard to find.
