    Browning Citori 725 Awarded Best of Best Award

    Browning is pleased to announce that the Citori 725 shotgun has received the Field & Stream Best of the Best award in the firearms category for 2012.

    "Our staff spent the better part of the past year finding andtesting the gear that will make readers' time in the woods more productive and more fun," says Slaton White, Deputy Editor ofField & Stream. "The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field. The Best of the Best is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money."

    In their evaluation, testers said tinkering with a classic rarely makes it better, but Browning accomplishes the difficult feat of making over a legend with the new Citori 725. Browning engineers trimmed metal from the bottom of the receiver and thinned the barrel walls. The result is a slimmed-down Citori that weighs nearly 3/4 pound less than the standard model.

    Phil Bourjaily, Shotguns Field Editor from Field & Stream, commented, "I hunted with and shot the 725 in both field and sporting models last fall, and it is by far the best-­handling, liveliest Citori ever. As if improving the gun's dynamics wasn't enough, Browning also made the ­welcome change of converting the triggers from an inertia design to a mechanical system. The nicely figured Grade II/III walnut with a satin finish won't show the inevitable dings you'll put on this gun, because the 12-gauge 725 is one you won't want to leave behind on any trip to the field."

    "It is an honor to have the new Citori 725 receive the prestigious Field & Stream Best of the Best award," said Ryan Godderidge, V.P of Sales and Marketing at Browning. "The Citori is a classic over and under shotgun that has had updates and improvements over the years. The 725 is the result of a lot of hard work by our design team and we are pleased that Field & Stream appreciated these improvements and gave us this year's award."

    Nice gun - but I just cant warm up to the large palm swell in the grip. I much prefer the std field grade grip.
