View Full Version : Internet Purchase of a Alcione
Was wondering if anyone knows of an online seller for Franchi? I know of Auction Arms and the other major two but was wondering if anyone knows of a Franchi dealer that sells via the internet.
I live in sunny Southern Commifornia and the only local retailer sells MSRP. Thanks guys.

No dealer that I'm aware of actually sells over the Internet. Any dealer to consumer sale requires that the forms be filled out in person.
I looked high and low for a Benelli SBEII LH and used the net to find a dealer who had one in stock, but I ultimately had to make a 2-1/2 hr drive to make the purchase.
Gunbroker, and I think the others, supply contact information for FFL's in your area. Usually, there is a fee of $15 - $25 for them to do the transfer. Not bad considering all of the time and gas money you save.

Thanks Tucker. I have tried all three of the major on line places and very few Franchi's for sale. Found one place in Michigan I will probably end up using. Have even tried emailing Franchi itself and they are taking thier time getting back to me.
Unfortunately I live in the nutball state of California and there is only one local place to buy from so they charge a premium. Nice bunch of guys but lack of competition doesn't help the bargining.

KB. What a shame. There are no less than 6 dealers within 1 hour of my house in Maryville,TN that sell Franchi for MSRP less 20%
