    Hi all! I am helping a friend sell a few guns. He has a Browning Citori that looks to be older, but is new in the box. It has a silver receiver with ducks on one side and I beleive pheasants on the other, with scrolling engraved on both sides of receiver. Gun is a trap model. No porting. Does anyone have an idea what grade of Citori this is? What is worth? Also what is going price for "used" Browning XT. This gun also has probably never been used. Sorry, no pictures. Wood on both guns looks to be higher grade. Thanks for the help! J. Webb.

    If these are Miroku made, I'd venture they are grade III. Also, I guess my hunch is likely correct 9/10 on this. Somebody else. If they are Belgian Brownings, wow, who knows and don't sell.

    If you go onto the Browning website, look up serial numbers and see what you have. It will tell you the year and whether it's trap, skeet, etc. Quite interesting....if the serial number ends in 43 it's definately a trap gun!
    Good luck!

    Ten to one it is a Grade III, but do the serial number thing to be sure.

    I suspect you are looking at between $1600 and $2200, maybe higher if the first Citori is a Grade VI. This website does fairly well at having listed guns sold. Pictures will be a must, even if you only email them rather than post them. Find a friend with a digital camera. Particulars like chokes (fixed or removable; if removable are they Invector or Invector Plus), barrel length, is the vent rib a high rib or field rib, whether in a hard case or the originial box, etc, are most helpful. Buyers out of state obvious have to go thru an FFL dealer.

    Seriously,

    What model of Benz is this that has the emblem on the hood, four doors and is black?

    I am not trying to be an ass, but, a picture is worth a bunch when trying to value a gun.

    Take a pic...send it to someone who will post it...and you will have much better luck. Don't leave the value of the guns to chance.

    Just MHO...take no offense........

    Looks like a grade V to me as well. If unshoot in original box it maybe worth more than a used Browning XT as well. Good Luck and Break-em all. More Pix's are needed or you can run the #'s thru browning as said.

    I would say 5, even before seeing the picture. The description given is of a 5.

    Thank you all for the info! It appears to be a Japanese made grade lll Citori. I really appreciate the help on this as there were so many types and grades of these guns made. That web page to check out serial #'s was something I did not know about. Have a good weekend, ( hopefully shooting), J. Webb.

    Here is the link to the Browning website to date your Citori.
