    This would be for hunting and maybe a little sporting, anyone have one? They are built like the Benelli except for the operating rod in the stock. The ones I have looked at really fit well.

    Yeah, I've got a 20 gauge Franchi model 48AL. It's a great lightweight shotgun for times which call for a lot of walking and carrying of a shotgun. I wouldn't select it for a target shooting gun or for shooting a lot of heavy loads, but for a moderate amount of shooting of standard velocity loads, it's a great gun. For grouse or rabbit hunting, it can't be beat..... in my humble opinion.

    Thanks for the replys, think the weight for long pheasant days is my concern, think I'll pick one up.
