    I paid $1500 for mine. If it isn't completely trashed, buy it before you tell anyone else that it is for sale. Mark

    I ran about 50,000 rounds through a Citori Plus. Purchased it new. Very reliable. Only repair needed, aside from comsmetic, was a broken top lever spring. Traded it off for a K80. Found better scores with the K Gun.

    A gun way ahead of its time. There is nothing wrong with a Browning that Skeet's Gun Shop in Talequah, OK can't fix! Buy it and shoot it! Martinpicker

    Had two great guns, the only problem is the ribs will damage eazyly and that's an excellent price.

    Buy it! 30" is faster to swing than 32" but for that price u can resale easily!

    Eyeball the rib and make sure it isn't bent/restraightened. Check out the recoil device by compressing it on a table top, it should have no slack and should compress smoothly to a point where it is tough to go further. Some of them "click". This isn't a bad thing, but means you need someone to take a look at it.
    If these items check out and the gun hasn't been obviously poorly cared for, $875 is a steal. That thing is a doubles crushing machine. Good luck.

    Even if you have to have it rebuilt $875 is a good price. Midwest Gun Works or Arts Gun and Sports shop can take care of anything that it may need.

    Agreed!!...that's a steal for all but the most thrashed Cit Plus..if it needs work still worth it as it would be a great gun to customize..satin hard chrome etc. new ribs from MGW are cheap enough and a 5minute swap if the original is boogered up

    Over 150,000 on mine,still shoots great. I agree about the Briley choke tubes. Mine was $1599 in 1994.

    Buy it.

    Rob a bank and buy it!! I have over 200,000 rounds through mine and have replaced a firing pin spring. May show some wear but still keeps me in A-25-A when I'm on my game. EXCELLENT PRICE!!! If you don't want it, tell me where it is QUICK!!!!
