Browning pattern with Back-Bored Technology The competitors’ pattern without Back-Bored Technology Feature an‰ Benefi‹ STEEL RECEIVER • Citori receivers are machined from steel for a long life and feature a durable, attractive blued or silver nitride finish. Feather models have a tough electroless nickel-plated finish. • Feather receivers reduce weight by using a high quality alloy for the receiver rather than steel. Steel components are added to high wear areas, ensuring durability. TRIPLE TRIGGER SYSTEM • The adjustable Triple Trigger System lets you set the trigger shoe in one of three positions to fine-tune finger-to-trigger reach. • Includes three interchangeable trigger shoes. • Featured on target models. THREE POSITION TRIGGER • The Three Position Trigger lets you set the trigger shoe in one of three positions to fine-tune finger-to-trigger reach. • Includes one trigger shoe. • Featured on CX, CXS and CXT models. LOCKING BOLT AND HINGE PIN • The Citori features a heavy-duty, transverse- mounted, full-width tapered locking bolt that engages a full-width tapered recess in the rear barrel lugs. Tapering the bolt and recess allows the bolt to seat deeper, accommodating for wear. The hinge pin extends across the width of the receiver for maximum strength. Engineering like this ensures the Citori wears in, not out. HAMMERS AND HAMMER EJECTORS • For positive primer ignition, Citori hammers are driven by powerful coil mainsprings. The convenient barrel selector allows you to choose which barrel fires on the first pull of the single trigger, and the second pull fires the remaining barrel. Ejectors are activated by a sharp hammer blow for more positive ejection than the push imparted by competitors’ ejectors. The automatic ejectors eject fired hulls when the breech is opened and elevate unfired shells for easy removal. POINT OF IMPACT • A big part of what makes Citori shotguns so versatile are the different points of impact (POI). CXS models feature a 50/50 POI that is preferred when a target presentation can come from anywhere, like a clay target soaring above you or a pheasant erupting from the brush. CX models feature a 60/40 POI that is great for all clay target sports and hunting as it allows you to float the target slightly to improve the sight picture. CXT models feature a 70/30 POI that is more suited to trap, where targets rise. The higher POI allows the target to be visible when the trigger is pulled. CHROME CHAMBERS • For increased durability and corrosion resistance, all Citori shotguns have hard chrome-plated chambers to resist the toll that thousands of shells can take on lesser quality guns. STEEL SHOT PERFORMANCE • The strength of Browning barrels is legendary, and they are built to handle the punishment of steel shot. Unlike some manufacturers’ barrels that show pitting after shooting steel, Browning pioneered construction that maximizes steel shot performance and barrel durability. • Browning barrels meet the strictest material and construction quality standards. The barrel blanks are made from rolled and tempered steel bars and are stress relieved to offer exceptional mechanical properties. The barrel blanks are then precision drilled, reamed and honed to exacting specifications. VECTOR PRO ™ FORCING CONES • Browning was the first manufacturer to recognize the performance advantages of a back-bored barrel and to make it a standard feature on shotguns. Longer, tapered Vector Pro forcing cone dimensions minimize shot deformation and maximize pattern uniformity, consistency and density. Back-boring increases bore diameter specifications and decreases friction between the shot cup and the bore to maximize shot pellet velocity and to reduce felt recoil. 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’re needed to bag more birds and crush clay targets. • Browning back-bore specifications represent the ideal bore dimensions. 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 flyers and poor ballistic performance. INTERCHANGEABLE CHOKE TUBES • To maximize versatility and optimize shot pattern performance and versatility, Citori 12 and 20 gauge shotguns feature the Invector-Plus system. 16 and 28 gauge, and 410 bore models include the Standard Invector. See pages 169 to 173 for our complete line of choke tubes and wrenches. ALL BROWNING FIREARMS ARE SHIPPED WITH A FREE LOCKING DEVICE TO ASSIST IN THE SAFE STORAGE OF FIREARMS.
