Skeet gun suggestions

I have been shooting trap for about 20 years and enjoy it a great deal. However, I have recently been introduced to skeet and have become captivated by the sport. I am at a point where I want to invest in a skeet gun and can not decided on what to choose.
I know that I want a 20 gage o/u and I am kind of leaning in the direction of a Browning 725 skeet gun.
i wold like to hear from folks who have suggestions and comments, not only on the Browning 725, but any skeet gun they would recommend taking a look at.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

your timing is unreal. I have recently decided to sell my Browning Citori CXS 20 gauge, less than 800 rounds through it.
it has the box & all accessories for $1450 if you are interested.....

The Citori is a great choice but do get one with 3" chambers due to someday wanting to use it for other pursuits. I've used a Citori 12 since 1982 for everything including skeet, trap and sporting clays and certainly waterfowl.

Hey there BP, that's a great offer and I do appreciate it. But I am just beginning my search and I don't want to make a commitment to something that I know nothing about, and have never had a chance to handle one or shoot one.
So at this point I am just trying to collect information, favorable or unfavorable, on skeet guns from folks who have used them.
Thanks!

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

eastbank, nice pics.

What is the difference between a field gun and a skeet gun? Rib height looks the same. Is it mostly the barrel length and balance of the gun? Maybe weight, back-bored tubes???

I have a lot to learn about these guns.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
