    I am interested in this model Citori for a Doubles and Sporting/Skeet gun. Seems I read the forearm on this model is slimmer than the the big Beavertail style on the XT. Can anyone clarify?

    I clicked on the link you provided and went a little further and pulled up pics of the XS Special side by side with the XS Skeet that does have the full beaver tail forearm (I know this because I have an XS Skeet). The Special does look like it has a little bit different forearm. I can't tell you it's more narrow, but looks like it is.
    What I can tell you is that my Skeet model is one of sweetest shooting shotguns I've ever owned. I'm on my second one. I shoot mostly sporting clays and I love the handling and balance of this gun. I personally like the beefy feel of the full beavertail forearm.

    I am shooting the XS Ultra and it has the same exact stock system as the XT. I have 30" bbls and I absolutley LOVE it. I do not have the High rib, but I also prefer to have a flat shooting gun. If you have any other questions, pelase feel free to ask.

    Loumish, I have the same gun as you and I solidly enjoy shooting it. I happened upon it about 10 years ago new in the box. Slender forearm as you say. And I love it......

    Yes it is amazing, but I wanted to make it clear for MGM that it has the beaver tail fore grip and NOT the slim sporting grip as asked about
