Citori for sporting clays

Hey guys, I'm gonna bite the bullet and buy an o/u for clays and am looking hard at a Browning Citori. Anyone have experience with them? They seem to be very popular and have a good rep from what I've read.

I am not an avid sporting clays shooter, but I have shot them with my Citori as well as hundreds of hand and machine thrown clay birds.

However I have used my improved/modified Citori since the mid 70's to hunt grouse, woodcock, squirrel and pheasants. I have 2 other very good upland game bird shot guns and they have set at home since I started using my Citori.

I believe they are an excellent shotgun for moving targets and they fit me perfect.

They are excellent guns. I would look for a used one and save yourself a nice chunk of change. New ones are a bit overpriced, but over the course of a lifetime, well worth it.

Re: Citori for sporting clays

Thanks for the responses guys. The one I'll be buying will be new since I work for a Browning dealer and employees can buy direct from Browning at a VERY reduced price!

This is the model I'm thinking about:

Good choice, not the glossiest glamourous finish is good for clays guns, they get used hard and bumped around alot.

Re: Citori for sporting clays

Very nice. I am glad I got mine years ago....$262.00 put it on layaway and took a year to pay it off. When I went to pick it up they had another one for $325. Just couldn't afford it at the time. Now I sure wish I would have purchased it.
