Franchi rolled out its latest over-under shotgun at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, introducing the Franchi Aspire. Available in 28-gauge or .410, the Aspire features interchangeable barrels with a receiver that's rounded and color case hardened. An ideal upland bird hunting shotgun, the Aspire sports a safety connected to the barrel selector, a thin forend and a thin, Prince of Wales style pistol grip; altogether, the Aspire shoulders very smoothly and comfortably. The Aspire will be available in March and will retail for $2,299. Check out the video from SHOT Show.
