Browning Citori 625 Introduced for 2008

MORGAN, UTAH — Browning has introduced the new Citori 625, which has Vector Pro™ extended forcing cones, a new modified trigger, and other features.

Like all Browning Citori over and unders, the new 625 has a fit and finish that rival that of guns costing much more with tight, consistent wood-to-metal fit. Action components are machined to exacting tolerances, heat-treated for added strength and hand-fitted using the traditional lampblack-and-file method to ensure the precise fit of critical components.

Vector Pro™ Extended Forcing Cones. Back-boring is proven to improve shot patterns, and Browning’s new Vector Pro does it better than anyone else in the industry. Vector Pro features extended forcing cones that are over 2” longer than other systems. The taper is much more gradual than the 5° industry specification for even less shot deformation resulting in more uniform and consistent patterns. The Vector Pro geometry completely eliminates any step or double taper between the chamber and bore.

The new Citori 625 will also feature all new wood checkering patterns that are both striking in appearance and highly functional, adding additional traction in all conditions. A new receiver engraving pattern combines tradition with a modern flare.

Citori 625 Field and 625 Sporting models will be offered for 2008. Receivers have a silver nitride finish with high-relief engraving. Stocks are gloss oil finish with Grade II/III walnut with radius pistol grip and Schnabel forearm.

The Citori 625 Field will be offered in 12 gauge only with 26” or 28” lightweight profile barrels. Three Invector Plus™ choke tubes are included. Browning Citori 626 Field, Suggested Retail, $2,299.00.

The new Citori 625 Sporting in both standard and adjustable comb stock models in 12 gauge only. Barrel lengths offered are 32”, 30” and 28”.

Five new Diamond Grade extended Invector Plus™ choke tubes will be supplied. Browning’s Triple Trigger System is also featured that allows the shooter to fine tune the length of pull and switch between a wide checkered, a narrow smooth and a wide smooth canted trigger shoe. HiViz® Pro-Comp fiber-optic front sights are also featured on the 625 Sporting model. Browning Citori 625 Sporting Suggested Retail, $3,299.00 with standard stock and $3499.00 with adjustable comb stock.
