I bought a stougers 12 gage once at a gun show used but did not show use for 250 and it was a great gun.

Soooo...... I bought a o/u shotgun. 28 ga. Franchi aspire. New in box. Straight grain dark walnut, gorgeous color case on a super slim receiver, light as a feather, and a great trigger ...on both barrels. Only thing I would change is shorter barrels. There 28". MSRP was @ $2200. I paid $1050, shipped. I bought it online, based on handling the franchi instinct in a Scheels. I like it better than the instinct I had handled previously. Pretty pleased.

Excellent choice. Never handled one, but they're a great looking gun!

Default O/U

I have two O/Us.....a 20 gauge Weatherby Orion field gun that I bought used and a .410 bore ATI Cavalry O/U.
I have shot both of them extensively in the field for ruffed grouse and Pheasant and at the Trap range.
I have never had a problem of any kind with either of these guns through thousands of rounds of shooting.

Let us know how it shoots. I've been looking at the Franchi Instinct SL in either 16 gauge or 28 gauge.

I bought a Citori 725 for a little less than 2K from Reeds. Shipped to my local dealer.

Have a Ruger Red Label 20ga from the first year of production, the late 70s. Fixed chokes, Mod and IC. They offered the 12 gauge a few years later. It is my favorite of my two OUs.
