Browning had a number of new products at SHOT Show this year. One of the standouts was the new 725 Citoris in 28 gauge and .410. The Citori line are direct descendants of the John Browning designed ( and strangely named) Superposed Shotgun.
The 725 is the newest version. The Citori and the earlier Superposed both have relatively tall actions. The 725 line slims this down and lightens up the barrels to make a faster pointing and tracking shotgun. The new small bore 725s take it a step further in the weight saving department. These should be popular for younger shooter as the shooting shooting sports continue to gain traction with woman and kids.
Take a look at the photos below. The guns may not be as photogenic as some of the scatterguns we gawked over at SHOT, but they’re not meant to be beauty queens. Browning has stuck with tradition and blended metal and wood into a working gun that doesn’t stand on pretense. It is how these guns shoot that really counts.
