    I would appreciate information about the browning 725 regarding weight, palm swell, etc

    I would like to hear from someone who has shot this gun for a period of time.

    Thank you.

    I have about 5K rounds thru mine - 725 Sporting Model 30".

    Palm swell is medium to small and the weight with the 30" barrels is just under 8lbs. The triggers are excellent at approx. 3 1/2 lbs.

    The gun moves like a Pgun. Purchased the 30" barrels because of sporting clays - tight windows in the woods need to get the gun moving quick, and it does. Points very well and generally fits out of the box. However, I had mine prof. fitted after about 3K rounds and it helped. Now, the gun shoots exactly where I look. Subjective recoil was OK but I like to shoot 7/8 oz. loads @ 1350fps. and 1 oz. loads @ 1325fps. so had an ISIS installed.

    IMHO, I think an outstanding value for an exceptionally good shooter.

    I purchased last week a Browning 725 Trap model with a straight adjustable comb (not Monty Carlo) and shot 10 boxes through it thus far. I have been shooting a 2010 Citori XT Monty Carlo and am now giving this to my son.


    On the 725 Trap, I really like the high rib and head-up position, I like the new receiver shape, the mechanical trigger is crisp and lively, it has a right-hand palm swell that fits well, and I also like the new choke design. The straight comb fits me much better than the MC, and I can immediately see the right alignment of the beads upon shouldering. I may add 1/4" extension on the butt for a little longer LOP (for me).


    I have not patterned it (yet). Been hitting in the 20 to 23 on good nights. I had a bad run last Wednesday evening with 16's and 17's ... entirely the shooter here; long work day and was just happy to be on the trap field (that's my story and I'm sticking to it ;-) )


    I like the new feel of the 725, point well for me, it feels "lively" and comfortable. I don't like the porting. I think Browning is moving in the right direction.


    Hope this was helpful. I am glad to provide you with any other information if you need it.


    Kind regards,
