Browning Introduces the New Citori White Lightning Over-Under

    Browning have introduced the latest in their line of Citori over and under sporting shotguns. The 12 gauge Citori White Lightning combines a silver nitride finished steel receiver with intricate engraving, polished blued barrels, oil finish grade III or IV walnut furniture and extended black band Invector-Plus choke tubes.

    The new shotgun is available in 26 and 28 inch barrel lengths, weighing just over 8 lbs. According to Browning’s website the Citori White Lightning’s ‘round knob’ pistol grip provides the shooter a natural, solid, repeatable grip position for each shot, “thus offering better control for fast-flying waterfowl upland game, sporting clays or trap and skeet.”

    Here’s Browning’s press release on the White Lightning in full:

    For those enthusiasts interested in a traditional shotgun built to excel in both the field and on the range alike, Browning is pleased to announce the reintroduction of the legendary Citori White Lightning over and under.

    The new White Lightning is built on a silver nitride finished receiver and features a new engraving pattern. The receiver houses the long lasting, full-width hinge pin and tapered locking lug design the Citori is respected for. Blued barrels feature ivory front and mid bead sights.

    The lightning-style stock and forearm are hewn from Grade III/IV American walnut with a rich, oil finish. Stylish new checkering patterns provide an updated appearance and enhanced grip.

    The Citori White Lightning is chambered for 12-gauge, 3″ shells and includes three Invector-Plus black Midas Grade extended choke tubes in Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder constrictions. Available barrel lengths are 26″ and 28″.

    The MSRP for the Citori White Lightning is $2,669.99.
