The Browning Citori is more than a shotgun, it is the quintessential representative of the quality of the Browning brand. 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.
Hammers are powered by powerful coil type mainsprings for positive primer ignition. The convenient barrel selector allows the shooter 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 shells when the breech is opened and elevate unfired shells for easy removal.
The Citori utilizes a transverse mounted, full width tapered locking bolt. The tapered locking bolt engages a full width tapered recess in the rear barrel lugs. The taper allows the bolt to seat deeper over the years. The hinge pin extends from one side of the receiver to the other for maximum strength. It's the reason people say a Citori wears in, not out.
All Citori shotguns feature chrome plated chambers that resist the toll thousands of shells can take on lesser quality guns. Corrosion resistance is also greatly improved.
