I kinda wanted to get some thoughts on this. My friend wants me to buy his Browning Citori 12 gauge 30 inch barrell for 1,800. He's had it for over 2 years, but only used it a few times.I told him I'd buy it for 1,700, but he won't budge. Do you think this this a deal?
Depends on which model of citori. Most run $2500+ brand new so depending on what shape it's in, yeah that's a good deal. Upper end and limited production models push $6000+
I used to use my dads Citori 725 for pheasant hunting and loved it. Short barrel on it. If I ever buy a gun specific for trap, it'd be a citori.
What grade is it? What are you using it for? Are different chokes included? You can go on armlist or GunBroker and see what they are going for. A nice grade 1 can be had for 600.00 used. I wouldn't spend that much on one for hunting.
