I have a new Franchi 12 ga and the receiver and barrel are stamped Benelli, as well as the box and all the papers. I'm assuming one owns the other? What are the differences. I have another older Franchi that doesn't say Benelli and is recoil operated. Who knows some history on these?

I love my Franchi, my first was a Brescia A handed down from my pow pow. Got a new one three years ago. It kicks like a mule but shoots a great pattern and is an awesome rice field/goose gun where you need a bit longer range.
