    Shotguns anyone?

    I have been a big admirer of custom shotguns and after all these years of owning several, I finally purchased what I liked to have. I know it's not a Colt but since it is under the name of a famous designer of many Colts I figured it was okay to talk about it. I always had Berettas or Benelli, or other brands that were more geared towards LE use but I finally have a Browning Citori VI O/U. I was wondering if any of you have any experiences with this model positive or negative. I know it has a great reputation but I would like to hear from actual people who use them. Let me know what you guys think.

    I have little or no interest in shotguns as a tool but can appreciate the work of the artisans that produce things of beauty such as you have there. Fabulous! Don't think it will make you shoot any better but you'll get a whole bunch of style points.

    I grew up shooting clays with a Browning Special Sporting. Not all that unlike your Citori VI. I have a soft spot in my heart for Browning O/Us and find them to be excellent guns. Well balanced, soft recoil (relatively speaking), and point perfectly. You can't ask for much more from a shotgun, and they have nice styling as well. I think you'll be happy. Thousands of rounds through mine and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    That is a beautiful shotgun, something that can be handed down through the generations.
    I bought my Citori Grade III back in 1992, paid $1500 back then. It was my go-to shotgun for bird hunting and clay targets.
    Still use it today the few times I go after birds, a regular trap gun has replace it for clays.
    In the 26 years I've owned and shot mine I have had "0" problems, it's still very tight and a pleasure to shoot.
    I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine.

    Man I just love old shotguns, form meets function, the highest art. Thanks for posting and congratulations. My older shotguns are all workman's models- Stevens and a Harrison& Richardson. Still the wood, the fit and the maching are superb. Nothing in that league though. Wow.

    Yesterday I too fulfilled a long held dream on a more humble scale and purchased a 1955 Winchester Model 12. A real classic standard for pump action at the time. Always wanted one and any pre-64 Winchester is a joy. Heres wishing you much pleasure shooting and admiring that fine
    piece.

    My new Citori CX won’t hold a light to the beautiful shotguns posted above but I’m tickled with it. It’ll be 2 weeks old tomorrow and I fired 700 rounds thru it already.

    Hopefully this doesn't apply to your shotgun but it`s worth reading.
