Citori. A perfect blend of beauty and performance.
The Citori is more than a shotgun, it is the quintessential representative of the quality of the Browning brand. Wood-to-metal fit is paramount on the Citori and with tight, consistent junctions it doesn’t disappoint. Action components are machined to exacting tolerances, heat-treated for greater strength and fitted using the traditional lampblack-and-file method to ensure the precise fit of critical components prior to being assembled to the action. It is this extreme level of craftsmanship that leads to the dependable function, impeccable looks, championship performance and respect from both Citori owners and the competition alike.
Vector Pro ™ lengthened forcing cone
Vector Pro lengthened forcing cone. Browning was the first manufacturer to recognize the advantages of a back-bored barrel. Now Browning has gone a step further with Vector Pro, featuring a lengthened forcing cone that is over 2" longer than other systems. This long, gradual taper minimizes shot deformation and maximizes pattern uniformity, consistency and density. Back-boring increases bore diameter to its maximum specification, reducing friction between the shot cup and the barrel to propel the shot pellets to a higher velocity and reduce felt recoil by the shooter. Reducing constriction from the forcing cone on the shot column results in fewer deformed pellets for more uniform patterns, and keeps more pellets in the central part of the pattern where they need to be to bag birds and targets. Browning’s back-bore specifications represent the ideal bore diameter. A larger bore diameter can let gases slip by the shot cup, resulting in both reduced pellet velocity and blown patterns. A smaller bore diameter means the forcing cone can deform pellets, leading to poor ballistic performance and uneven, spotty pellet coverage on the target.
Three Invector Plus choke tubes
Invector-Plus™ choke system. The proven Invector-Plus interchangeable choke tube system works hand-in-hand with Vector Pro and back-boring to offer consistent, dense shot patterns with just the constriction needed for the shooting situation. The longer choke taper inside an Invector-Plus choke tube produces consistent patterns with more uniform densities and fewer fliers. The superior design of the Invector-Plus system is far more durable than the choke systems found in our competitors’ guns, especially when shooting steel shot. Invector-Plus eliminates gases slipping between the choke tube and barrel that could damage the choke tube and the barrel.
