    I have a couple Citori's locally that are for sale and I'm not sure of the value based on the asking price. Looking for a nice first trap gun, but a deal is better. Let me know your thoughts on the following:

    1973 Browning Citori 3", fixed chokes, looks to be in great shape functionally and cosmetically - $895

    1989 Browning Citori Trap Combo, comes with 1 single barrel ported 34". second barrel is 32" full and modified O/U, in a nice hard leather wrapped case - $1900

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks Joe...but is that a good price? I can't find a similar one posted here to compare, and the only ones I find online are older listings. I did find the same setup that sold in April of 2012 for $1100, so was that a killer deal, or is this price to high?

    I have found that the gun books almost always have trap guns priced unrealistically low compared to actual selling prices. Marc

    So based on that then how far off the mark are both these guns?

    In my opinion they are both priced close to fair. The first is a Grade I Citori hunter, or field. $850. The second is the desirable 34/32 combo. Though it has fixed chokes, and probably a top single, which takes from the the value, not function, it does come with a case. Maybe $1800 on the combo. I would not consider them deals though.

    Condition is King when determining price. A trap gun might well have been shot a lot so be sure to check?

    I bought a 1976 Citori Trap on this site for $800 plus shipping. Last week I bought a Citori Trap Grade 3 with choke tubes for $1100. Very nice guns, both. I would think the combo would be the way to go IF it is good shape and IF you v
    can get it for a hundred or two less. Martinpicker
