Yep they are both great shotguns. I just collect them and use them from time to time if we go for ducks or wild boare (which is quite dangerous but fun) in Greece in the north in the winter.
In Greece the law is not as stricked as it is here. You just have what you call her a fire arms licence nothing else. Before you get it you go and have an inteview with a phycologist (don't know how I passed their
) and you need to have clean records with the police. Then you can have up to 5 or 7 shotguns.
If you want to get a rifle or a pistol or a K47 or anything like that then you need to apply to the police and is a different procedure. You need to prove the reasons why you need the weapon and is more lengthy process. However, is more or less on the same wavelength as of that for obtaining a shotgun licence.
The Franchi I did have a problem as the barrel is short but I was lucky I guess and passed it through.
Price wise (is sometime when I got those two) I think the Moseburg cost me 250000 drahmas (£400) and the Franchi I think 350000 drahmas (£600). Not a lot both brand new and leagal.
PS: The Moseburg comes with a wooden stick inside the catridge chamber so that you can only use 3 catriages (which you do when you shoot game) but take that out and you have 6 (5 in the main chamber) and one in the shooting chamber. Very light shotgun too.
The Franchi again takes 2 and 5 catriages BUT it has a magazine that you get (I have
) and you can put up on the top and in total you get 9 catriages in total plus one in the firing chamber
