Browning Citori XS Sporting 12 Gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The overall handling ability, smooth function and great trigger earned the Browning our top grade. Most, but not all, shooters will prefer extended chokes, but we didn't mark down for that.

A combination of a white mid-bead, the Browning's Hi-Viz Pro-Comp front sight system and wide rib on the 32-inch barrel provided an excellent sighting plane for our shooters. Note the porting, which helps control recoil.
Slim and a good fit for all members of our team, we were also impressed with the ease in which the Citori's forearm could be removed and reinstalled; a big plus over the Remington.
The locking lug system of the Browning, featuring lugs that fit into the bottom of the receiver, is a tight system that also helps direct recoil in a manner that reduces barrel jump.
