Franchi 48AL Cycle Problems

Postby gmkempf » Sun Sep 22, 2013 7:58 am

I acquired this shotgun through the passing of my father and gave it to my son. It has not been shot in years but is in excellent shape.I did a thourugh cleaning on it and it will not cycle a dove load but will cycle a heavy pheasant load just fine. Any suggestions. Thank You!

Yes, you need to turn over the bottom ring on the mag tube so the flat side is up for light loads The best advice I can give you is do a quick search on the internet for the user manual and read it carefully and keep it for reference.
Well, are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?
