I am looking at getting a Franchi and the guy I am looking to buy it from is saying there is a issue that is preventing the mag tube from feeding does anyone have any idea what the issue might be exactly and a rough cost on what it would cost to fix it?

Could be follower or spring. Why not take a look at it yourself?

Well just was curious before i bought it if it was even worth it.

I have heard it kicks hard but couldn't really pass up the deal for this one and figure if i don't like it after shooting it then I can at least fix it and trade it for something else.

Might just need a good cleaning or a new follower. I've seen a gun do that when the follower was filthy. Or else you can buy a new follower for about $20.

How is the spring? I would also clean the tube anyways. Does the follower have any nicks or sharp edges on it?

They are not hard kickers if the friction rings are set up right.
