Morgan, Utah-The Browning Citori has built a reputation as the finest, most reliable over and under shotgun available. For 2012 Browning will introduce the new Citori 725 12 gauge over and under that is the evolution of John M. Browning’s legendary B25 Superposed, now with the modern performance advantage of a low-profile receiver.
The new 725 receiver is significantly lower than other Citori 12 gauge receivers, yet the 725 shares the renowned durability of generations of Citori over and unders with the same rugged full-width hinge pin and tapered locking bolt design.
The new Browning 725 showcases an all-new FireLite Mechanical Trigger that offers unmatched feel and lighter pull weights than ever before offered on a Citori. The innovative design features reduced take up, a crisp break and shorter overtravel. Trigger pull weights are about 3-3 ½ lbs. for Sporting guns and 4-4 ½ lbs. for Field Models.
Browning’s new Inflex II Technology recoil pad gives the new 725 the next generation of the most recoil absorbing pad available. A softer new material provides better recoil absorbing performance and is super slippery to prevent snagging on clothing when shouldering. Internal directional deflection construction guides the comb down and away from the cheek for greater shooting comfort and faster, more accurate follow-up shots.
The new 725 Citori will feature Browning’s new Invector-DS™ (Double Seal) Choke System that provides better patterning, lighter weight and a sleeker barrel profile. The combination of muzzle-end treads and thin-wall construction allows for a longer, more gradually tapered choke tube that results in more evenly scaled patterns. The Invector-DS also features a proprietary brass seal that prevents gas and grit from slipping between the barrel and choke tube.
Citori 725 Field and 725 Sporting Models will be offered for 2012. The new low-profile receivers have a silver nitride finish. Field models feature a high-relief engraving and sporting models feature a gold accented engraving. Both models will feature Browning’s Vector Pro™ lengthened forcing cones for improved patterns and performance.
The Citori 725 Field model will feature gloss oil finish Grade II/III walnut stock with close radius pistol grip and trim fore-end with cut checkering. Three Invector-DS™ choke tubes are included. Available in 12 gauge only with 26″ or 28″ lightweight profile barrels and ventilated rib. Average weight 7 lbs. 4 oz. – 7 lbs. 6 oz. Browning Citori 725 Field, Suggested Retail, $2,469.99.
The new Citori 725 Sporting model will feature gloss oil finish Grade III/IV walnut with close radius pistol grip stock and trim fore-end. Browning’s Triple Trigger System is also featured that allows the shooter to fine tune the length of pull and switch between a wide checkered, a narrow smooth or a wide smooth trigger shoe. HiViz® Pro-Comp fiber-optic front sight and ivory mid-bead are supplied. Five extended Invector-DS™ choke tubes will be included. Available in 28″, 30″ and 32″ lightweight profile barrels and tapered ventilated rib. Average weight 7 lbs. 6 oz. – 7 lbs. 10 oz. Browning Citori 725 Sporting, Suggested Retail, $3,139.99.
