The Citori is already one of the most beautiful guns on the market, add the engraving and you have a masterpiece. This shotgun is certainly a looker that will turn some heads but with its accessories and in such high condition, this is a prime contender to add to a collection. This is one of the classiest shotguns you can get your hands on, no matter if you collect Brownings, shotguns, or engraved guns this is something to bid on. Please see our photos and good luck!
