I am also in the same situation. The only markings where I would expect to see the model are "S.p.A. Luigi Franchi Brescia Made in Italy 20 Ga Mod.". I do not see anything else that looks like a model #. Rusty, we may have the same type of gun. Mine has a scene of a quail hunt on it. My problem is that the chromed metal piece where you load shells (it also brings the new shells up to the chamber) has broken, and I cannot figure out where I can get parts, even if I knew the model of the gun. The sereal # on my gun is 59548. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated! smile.gif
I purchased a Franchi from an auction about
one month ago.. it appears also that it has
no model number... i wanted to get a different
stock for it and ran into a dead end... i even
contacted the company that produced the shotgun
in Italy.. all that they would tell me was that
my shotgun has been out of production for over
20 years... so if you can't get parts and decide
to pitch the shotgun... send me the stock!!!

Sounds like we are all in the same boat. I have the same issue. Older Franchi 20ga with no model #. My guess is its a 48AL. I have been looking for a full choke barrell for a while. Any ideas?

check e-bay for a few items...
stock - #3637650795
fore stock - #3637652780
barrel with fran-choke tube system - #3637620499
don't know if it will help but worth a look

I have the same problem. I have a Franchi Brescia 12 ga o/u. I can't even find a serial number, although I'm going to search for that more tonight. I would like to know what choke each of the barells has, plus get a manual on this model. Any ideas?

Try Numrich gun parts web address is
you can order parts & schematics are 1.50 each
You may have an Eldorado model which is a 1960's to 70's model or a 48 AL.
I have a 12 gauge Eldorado serial # B09461.
I have been searching for NOS replacement stocks for a long time. . I lost the forend cap a few years ago and it took a year of searching to find a replacement. Franchi was imported by Stoeger. Try and call all the old timer gun shops and ask about NOS parts.
If the semi autos are recoil operated and look like an AL-48 they should be a Hunter model I am not sure if the AL48 parts will interchange though. They had 3 grades ,standard model had plain reciever,the middle grade engraved blued reciever,
and the higher grade was engraved with silver reciever. I hope this helps..

Jason Pull off the barrel, it should have ser# there,
on bottom of barrel. Please Let me know what else it says. Mine Has "ACCIAIO OOGNE" Superchromatic on the bottom of barrels as well.
Sounds as tho everyone is haveing the same problem as me, finding info. I am also interested in knowing which barrel has what choke. The gun shoots awsome tho, even not knowing much about it..........LOL.

I bought a Franchi O/U last year. It was the 1992 Ducks Unlimited sponsor gun. I am looking for a 20ga barrel. There were several places that sold them as recent as last year but now I can't find anyone. It is the Alcione model. If any of you find a parts supplier let me know.
What is the contact info for the factory in Italy?
The info that I have found:
Franchi was imported by American Arms in North Kansas City, MO. From 1985 to 2000 I think. Gunbroker has some parts for various models.
I contacted the founder of American Arms and he is getting me the name and contact info of a gunsmith that works on older Franchi firearms. Will pass it on when I get it.
