    I just purchased a Browning Citori Special Trap with 32 barrels. Is it possible to put a single barrel on this gun and make it a combo gun. It has an adjustable combs as well. Any help would be great or where I might find one. Thanks Tim

    Browning won't sell the unsingle barrel separately. I tried a lot of ways to get an unsingle barrel, and I finally gave up.

    Further, even if you were able to get one (say, from someone who bought a combo and didn't want the unsingle - very unlikely), Browning says that the barrel may not fit your receiver; each Citori receiver is hand fitted to its barrel set and therefore they are not interchangeable. There may be something to this - I have access to two Citoris; I checked and his barrel will fit my receiver, but my barrel won't fit his receiver. I think what's going on is that the monoblock on his Citori is slightly smaller than the monoblock on my Citori.

    It is possible, but the single barrel will not automatically fit. I've had some that fit, but is was only by sheer luck. I have a 34" top single for $850 delivered if you want to get it a try. Barrels can be fitted by a competent gunsmith.

    Bob,

    Can you give me some more details about the barrel?
    Is it fixed choke, invector or invector plus?

    I'm interested if I can get it to fit a Citori-Plus.

    Thanks,
    Mike
