Our Assessment: As proud owners of several Browning Citori’s, we can speak highly of these guns. We are loyal fans of Browning, the man and the company, and Citori’s are among the best guns they’ve ever made. They are the most practical and most comfortable to shoot Over / Unders made. You can spend a lot more money on a Kreighoff, Perazzi, Rizzini, and see no added functionality or build quality. Honor John Browning and treat yourself with this almost new special trap edition shotgun.
