    Is there a major quality difference between these two guns? I understand the Broadway was made in Belgium and the Citori was made in Japan. If so, what are the differences? Also, in what year did they stop making Broadways and start making Citori's? Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    If I were a collector I would choose the Superposed but as a shooter my pick is the Citori, the rib doesn't get loose and come off and the misfires on the bottom barrel were mostly cured. My opinion only others will disagree.

    I have found that the Browning Broadway has more of its weight distributed up front so that when I shoot a Citori, I find it to be a tad barrel-light, too easy to swing beyond the target. I suppose if I shot a Citori exclusively, I would find the Broadway a bit barrel-heavy. They are both superb trap guns, nevertheless.

    Materials: Advantage Superposed
    Workmanship: Advantage Superposed
    Reliability: Advantage Superposed
    Fit and finish: Advantage Superposed
    Features: Advantage Citori (chokes)

    You have a choice...old school with supreme workmanship (Superposed) or cheapened with more features (Citori)......Broadway Traps seldom ever have loose ribs....

    I like the old Browning Superposed. I have no good reasons for preferring it over the new Citori. I like looking down a Broadway rib when I just pick one up to look. I hate shooting with a Broadway rib. It is very easy to shoot off the corners of the wide rib.

    To me there is something special knowing the gun was handmade and produced in Belgium, that the G1s simple engraving was hand done. I have an S5 gun - 1965 30" BroadWay...

    It seemed to many to be plasphemy (sic?!), but I had Briley replace the IM/F and put in a set of thinwalls years ago and I have since used the gun for everything from Trap, Skeet and Sporting as well as take it afield for upland.

    Its a nice gun, never a 2nd thought about its purchase...

    if you break a superposed,it requires handfitting of parts,a Citori is CNC machined and often requires little if any fitting. A big plus in a gun that shoots a lot.
