Video Review: Franchi Affinity Turkey Elite Semi-Auto Shotgun

Soft-shooting, accurate and optimized for taking thunder chickens, our staff says the Turkey Elite is a real treat.

posted on October 14, 2022

What makes an NRA Gun of the Week? Well, this week, it takes a shotgun that has been optimized for two things: user comfort and downrange efficacy. That shotgun should be chambered in 20 gauge and should run on an inertia-driven operating system that seems to defy Newton's laws of motion (at least, as far as that motion goes back into your shoulder). It should print consistent patterns downrange at turkey distances of 50 yards or more depending upon the load you select. It should wear a lovely bronze Cerakote that's as rugged as it is attractive, enhanced with Gore Subalpine Fade camouflage. It ought to boast premium set of fiber-optic, rifle-style sights round out the package for a gun that's perfect for hunting. In short, it ought to be a Franchi Affinity Turkey Elite! In this terrific video from our friends at American Rifleman, you'll learn more about this soft-shooting semi-auto from the good folks at Franchi
