    i hear from a whole lot of sources that a used citori makes an ideal O/U skeet gun for my budget

    i mounted one last night though and the cheek was way too high, almost like the

    interchangable cheek for my mossberg 500 with the slug barrel and scope

    is that normal? or was it an oddball stock?

    it appeared to be a very well made shotgun though

    They are very well made and yes with the right chokes it would make a good skeet gun. Sounds like to me the stock was not right for you. It might have a MC trap stock on it and you should probably find a different stock or a different Citori with a skeet stock---Matt

    If you are handi and have a liitle skill, Wenig makes some decent semi inletted stocks for most popular shot guns. A standard grade walnut stock should not run you to much $$. I have had little luck finding Used factory stocks for citori

    I usually find the Citori stock just a tad bit low. Either way, it is easily solved by adding an adjustable comb.

    sarge-

    i have a mossberg 500 now

    i did not want an auto-loader because i don't want a shell in the chamber without me having put it there

    just want to pick out my "next gun" which will probably be a decent used O/U and am researching my options

    You probably mounted a trap stock which is higher than the normal field gun stock. I don't shoot skeet so I'm not aware what they use for close crossing birds. Post-2

    Did you check some of the newer guns with parallel combs: The Browning XS Skeet, the Beretta (I know you don't care for) autos with parallel comb? Sweet..fit most nicely, don't tend to rap you in cheekbone.
