Back when I was a kid, Brownings, Rugers, and then Beretta 686s were the classy OUs I dreamed about owning one day, and this 20g Browning Citori Superlight certainly would have been a shotgun that I fantasized about taking into the field with me.
It’s on Gunbroker.com now, and the online auction ends 5/28/2022 @ 8:15 PM.
The Browning Citori was the grandchild of the company’s first over-under shotgun — the Superposed. First offered in 1973, Citoris are still around today and over the last 50+ years they have come in all sorts of styles and models.
The one you see here appears to be in excellent condition. These guns usually weigh under 6lbs, so it would be a great upland gun. Here’s more information about it from the seller:
A TRULY EXCEPTIONAL!!!! 1985 Browning Citori “SUPER-LIGHT” – FACTORY ENGRAVED!! Chambered in 20 GAUGE 2 3/4 inch ONLY!!!!!
Sporting a 26inch VENTED Ribbed barrel, OUTFITTED W/ the highly desirable INVECTOR CHOKE SYSTEM!!!! Finished off W/ a GORGEOUS “OIL FINISHED” (NOT THE EASILY MARKABLE EPOXY FINNISH) English style walnut stock & SUPER SEXY SCHNABEL fore-end!
Flaunting 95% CONDITION!!! !!! FROM 1985!!
IF THIS EXAMPLE WAS EVER FIRED, IT WAS LESS THEN A BOX OF SHELLS IF THAT!!
This is the VERY RARE & DESIRABLE “SuperLight” Model!!! Not the “Sporter” Model, the “Sporter” model is desirable as well, but nothing close to the “SUPERLIGHT“!!!
- A quick way to tell the difference btw: the two is that the “SUPERLIGHT’s” WILL ONLY EXCEPT 2 3/4 inch shells! While the “Sporter” Model will except 3inch shells…
- These “SUPERLIGHT’s” are OVER 1 POUND LIGHTER than their “Sporter” Model Cousin!!
- Unlike today’s alloy framed & gloss finished Citori’s, this GEM is an ALL STEEL receiver and sports a gorgeous OIL FINISH that doesn’t show dings as ugly white scars the way gloss finishes do!!
This Citori SUPERLIGHT is in excellent condition! If it wasn’t for the very small handling marks near the receiver, I would rate this at 99%+. But in no way do these small handling marks take away from the beauty of this piece!
If you are looking for a super classy upland shotgun THIS IS IT!!!
This is one phenomenal over/under by Browning – arguably the best model for upland bird hunting with its light-weight, gorgeous English stock & undeniably sexy schnabel fore end!!!
