Our history includes well over a century of unique metalworking skills. That expertise is still evident in Franchi products being made today.
It Began in Italy In 1868, Franchi began manufacturing firearms in Brescia, Italy. The city was part of that nation’s industrial heartland. In those days, gunmakers’ guilds isolated themselves to keep their metalworking techniques secret. Thus began our well-established tradition of craftsmanship.
Our Philosophy Endures From the beginning, our philosophy has been to provide quality products that meet emerging needs. We continue to innovate and patent new technology. And we never compromise the original ideas that make Franchi firearms unique.
We Help Lead the Industry
Franchi’s role in the gunmaking industry has always been major. We are a leader in modern firearm manufacturing techniques:
Franchi has perfected the art of building double-barrel and auto-loader shotguns. And we have earned a reputation for enduring quality.
The Horizon bolt action rifle, together with the hunter, is the star of the perfect day, in any place and in any condition. And just as instinct, patience and strategy are all necessary for hunting ungulates, so too is the ideal rifle. Ergonomics, precision and essential lines are the pillars of this new project.
The Franchi Horizon is a starting point, the beginning of a new adventure in shooting.
