    Check the hammer springs, if they are flat springs it is a "type 1" or "pre type 1" and replacement springs are essentially unavailable. Go from there as to what it is worth to you.

    A Citori Trap in any configuration, or age in 95% condition is a good deal at $700. Jon

    Ditto what Stl Flyn said....... Citori's are very reliable, and good shooting guns. $700.00 for a 95% gun is a good deal. I own 2 Citori Trap combo units and both will smoke targets if you point them in the right direction. If you are in the market for a Trap gun GO FOR IT you will not regret it!!!!!!!

    I recently paid $800 for one that isn't near 95%, and I don't regret a penny of it. Martinpicker

    use snap caps everytime you are done shooting to protect the springs.
