Browning Adds Feather 20 Gauge Model to Citori 725 Line

    A month ago we published about Browning’s new offerings in their Citori 725 line. They have added a new lightweight Feather 20 gauge model the line-up. It weighs only 6 lbs. 6 oz. for the 26″ barrel and will be 6 lbs. 6 oz. for the 28″ barrel lengths.

    The low-profile receiver design of the Citori 725 Feather features a silver nitride finish and high relief engraving. The Fire Lite mechanical trigger system offers a light pull and, unlike an inertia trigger, does not need recoil to set up the next shot. The stock and forearm are made from Grade II/III walnut with close radius pistol grip and a rich gloss oil finish.

    To ensure a consistent shot pattern, the Citori 725 Feather includes Vector Pro lengthened forcing cones and the Invector-DS choke tube system. For reduced felt recoil, it is fitted with an Inflex Technology recoil pad.

    The video is pretty funny with the “bullet camera” view of the shot on the bird.

    The suggested retail is under half of the 12 gauge line, coming in at $2,549.99.  Still a hefty price tag though.
