The Affinity Sporting Semi-Auto is an inertia driven semi-auto with a brushed anodized receiver and smooth swinging 30-inch barrel. A slender pistol grip and slim forend along with the light (6.8 pounds) weight of the 12-gauge shotgun provides for sure handling in the field or on the range. Steel inserts in the receiver maintain rigidity and a solid lock-up, while allowing the gun to maintain it’s feathery appeal. A rear trigger guard safety is quickly and naturally accessed for fast shots on flushing gamebirds. Length-of-pull is adjustable using three recoil pads of varied thickness. ($1,159; franchiusa.com)
