Very nice grain in the Model 725 stock earned the new version of Browning's Citori high marks for appearance. We did note that the stocks of both test shotguns were nearly identical when ranked for comfort and fine- handling features.
Offering a little more etched gold trim and engraving, the Model XS, top, placed slightly ahead of the Model 725 in the appearance category, although both of the silver-nitride-finished steel receivers were fine additions to the looks of the scatterguns.
The Invector-DS chokes, left, are noticeably longer and thinner than both the Diana Grade extended chokes and the original Invector-Plus chokes that came with the Model XS. The Invector-DS chokes only fit the Model 725 and are not interchangeable with the other Citori shotgun chokes -- a downside for anyone with a bag of old chokes.
