The 48 AL is a semi-automatic shotgun manufactured by Luigi Franchi S.p.A..

The gun is available in 20 gauge and 28 gauge. It uses a patented action that John Browning developed for the Browning Auto-5.[2] Rounds are cycled through long recoil.[3] Factory models are equipped with walnut stocks and forends. Franchi offers one model with a short stock, and one model with a “Prince-of-Wales” stock.
