Anybody seen or have a chance to see or shoot the new Browning 725 trap model.

Curious as to how it stacks up to the XT model and if worthwhile to "upgrade"

I am the shooting coach for the Ms State Shooting Club. One of my guys has a 725 Sporting. I shot several dedicated trap guns of several manufacturers, three much more expensive than the XT that I have shot for the past ten years. His Sporting 725 fits me better than ANY OUT OF THE BOX GUN I HAVE EVER PICKED UP. As always, fit depends on each shooter but this is the first gun I have thought about buying in several years. It Is VERY nice!! Very smooth, points naturally on skeet and trap, low recoil looks good. All these depend on fit...and iT FITS my 6-4 215# frame Jim Porter

Richland Shooters Supply in Richland, Pa. has them in stock as of this evening. I was down and looked at a Monte Carlo fixed comb model in 32". They said they also had straight stock adjustable comb models, but I didn't ask what barrel lengths. Assuming the tag on the box was accurate, price was $2525.99 on the one I looked at...

ttt...anyone handled or shot one yet? Looking to upgrade from my bt99, to a XT or 725 trap. Shot a 725 sporting on a few rounds of trap and loved it, only complaint was that it felt a tad light . Trap model is suppose to be a pound or so heavier according to browning.

I purchased a 32" Monte Carlo 725 from Richland last week. It is currently having an adjustable comb and adjustable butt pad installed. I am anxious to see how it shoots.

Paul7177, let us know how it shoots.

I am really interested in hearing about the trigger. The 725 is supposed to have a fantastic trigger, the only real downfall that I have with my XT.

I shot two rounds yesterday afternoon. I did not do as well as I do with my Citori XT, but it will take some time to get used to it. As for the trigger, it does not seem to be any better than my Citori XT. It still has some slack that I take up before pulling the trigger. It patterns about 80/20 for me as does my XT.

Paul7177, does it have a higher stock to go with the higher rib? From the pics on the website, it appears that the rib and stock are higher than on the XT. Doug Allison

Doug....Yes and Yes. The rib is about 3/16" higher than the XT.

The website states it comes with flush chokes, just checking to see if that is correct or if it actually comes with the extended ones

My XT Trigger is tight and beautiful, breaks at about 4lbs no slack. Maybe I was lucky?

I went to Jaquas on Wed to see the new 725 trap guns. They really look nice. It seems to me that the gun is more right hand cast vs the XT series. It had a big right hand palm swell. I shouldered both the XT and the 725 as I am left handed. The XT felt great, but the 725 didn't fit me. I would love to see a left handed model of the 725. I do like the higher comb and rib on the 725. Doug Allison

I broke down and got myself the trap model this weekend. MC stock, which I know I need to add 1/2 to lop. I need to pattern it and the chokes, but I was able to sneak in 2 rounds of skeet and trap and the gun appears to shoot 70/30 which is right where I had my XT with adj. comb set at.

Triggers are much better than my old XT.

The gun doesn't appear to have as much recoil as the XT, but that could be new gun syndrome talking.

At first I did notice a "ping" when I would shoot. Not sure if that was a barrel ring or the hammer strikes. After about half a box I didn't notice it anymore.

I shot the gun as well as my old one; however, in the past it would usually take me 1k shells to get the gun dialed in, so I am hoping that my scores will be improving by the time I hit the 1k mark.

I need to pattern the chokes for sure, but I think they may be off by 2 sizes. I shot the IM/M at skeet and ran a 22 and 24. I doubt I could have done that with tight chokes.

The IM did break target fine from the 16, the full is more than enough choke back to the fence.

Apparently, there were a few trap models erroneously shipped with extended chokes ( lucked out and got the extended tubes), otherwise they come with the flush tubes.

I will be putting my XT up for sale shortly.

Xsshooter: How dose the weight/swing feel compared to the XT?

The 725 with 32 inch on my scale weighed in at 8.5 lbs. My 30 inch XT, with adj. comb hardware came in at the exact same weight. I also weighed a friend of mines 32 inch XT with adj comb hardware and it came in about 1 lbs heavier. He has some awesome wood on his gun, so not sure if he just got denser/heavier wood on his.

I think the 725 feels lighter, and is a much more balanced gun. I think the XT is a little barrel heavy. The 725 seems to swing better, but again not enough rounds down range to know if it is just new gun love.

I hope to get 200-300 through the gun this weekend to get a better feel for it.
