Although not as impressive as the engraving on the Model 725’s receiver, the clean, crisp look of the Model 325’s silver nitrite receiver was still pleasing to the eye of the beholders.
A sure and pleasant-feeling grip for shooters, the forearm on the Model 325 over/under was the same Schnabel style used in all but the newest version of the X25 shotgun line.
The easily adjustable trigger on the Model 325 is a nice touch on a veteran shotgun and was appreciated by our team members requiring different LOP requirements. We really liked the touch off of 4.5 pounds on the bottom barrel and 5.25 pounds on the top.
Ported barrels are designed to help reduce recoil, although recoil with 20-gauge loads is not normally a major consideration for most shooters. We did not observe any difference in the felt recoil with the two shotguns, but did note the increased muzzle blast with the Model 325’s ported barrels.
