    Need info on 3

    I reciently purchased a used 20 gauge Franchi AL 48 Hunter model auto shotgun.
    It has a vent rib 28" 3" chambered barrel with the following markings
    (Left Side) S.p.A. Luigi Franchi Brescia Made in Italy Magnum 3" 1/m 76>

    ( Bottom) * ** *
    *Finito PSI X XXIII
    503229
    Acciaio KMC Superoromato (there is a figuare of a man with a gun)

    Can this barrel also shoot and properly function with 23/4" high and low brass shells? Do the friction rings need to be reversed to do that?

    Any other info on the barrel markings would be appricated.

    Thank you in advance...Jerry Felice
