I own the alcione with the 20ga barrel set and the 30inch sport set . Iskeet shoot with both and have shot 1500 rounds since november and it works great . Briley chokes made a difference that was worth the money.see ya later
Thanks for the info. It's such a great looking gun! I think I will make a move and get me one.
Good luck with your skeet shooting!!

skeet shooting you can get a rhythm but last week I threw two rounds of trap in and laughed at my self.I went back to skeet for one last round. Do you shoot at all ?
I shoot skeet when I have some time free. I would say once a month. I haven't really tried trap, but i enjoy just getting out. I understand that a skeet gun and a trap gun are somewhat different; therefore you must have "the right tool for the job"
PS do you hunt deer?

Yes ,to do I hunt deer. I have slowly lost interest but I still go out. I started trapping and that way more fun . I'm going to try and get some town deer this fall theres alot running around and I found a 5 point skull behind my house. I think it got hit by a car. My inlaws live in jackman maine that where the big deer. Many dozen tagged between 220 -275 in november.send a private message to hear more about it if you want.
well, i must confess. eventhough i have tried to hunt deer i've never gotten anything. i guess partially it's because i'm a city guy and every time i get out is for quick rush job.
i am trying to find better places to hunt, and your location sounds really good!! if you can please give me more info.
email me at [email protected]
i usually check my email there more often.
PS i tried the private message and it gave me some error............

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.
