    My son is moving out of trap shooting into sporting clays and field hunting. He is courrently looking at CZ and Franchi for moderately priced over and unders. Anybody have their 2 cents on whats out there in this range? We will be listing his Citori Plus on here to sell shortly.

    CZ and Franchi are not in the same league as his Citori. Just look for another Citori that's configured for sporting.

    If he's used to a Citori, me think that the 3200 will not be a great fit.

    Used Citori or used 68x Beretta. Stay away from anything made in Turkey.

    Doesn't the plus model have moveable rib? Set it to 50/50 and have fun. SKB 85TSS skeet model or Beretta 682 spII is a great performer.

    Citori Sporting Hunter or for a few bucks more one of the other higher rib Citori models. Hard to beat a Browning for fit and value IMHO

    I have adjusted my Citori Plus to shoot as flat as it will go, and it shoots about 60/40 for me. I have run all 25 at 5 Stand with it. He could shoot Sporting with it. Buy something light, maybe 20 gauge for hunting. Mark

    Field ? I love my Superposed. Love Love Love

    I would think you could find someone to trade with that is going the opposite way.

    I will be posting an excellent Lightning Citori high rib sporter this weekend. It's a 95% beauty and unaltered. It uses invector plus chokes. Stay tuned for pix and posting if you are interested. It will be priced RIGHT!

    Pull-it, don't be in a hurry to get rid of the Citori Plus. I shot a 93, my best sporting clays score with a 30" Citori Plus a few years ago. Try it. He may like it. I have been known to shoot over my head every once in a while..lol... Jim

    I'd look around for one of the Remington STS O/U that Sabatti made. These could be bought new for less than a $1K and I'm sure a used one would be a couple $$ less.

    The best $1000 sporting gun is a $1000 Fabbri.
