    On the Citori models does the "XS" refer to a sporting model and the "XS Skeet" refer to a skeet model? If so I assume that the drop is more on the skeet model? Looking at some smaller gauge models and just trying to do my homework. Thanks.

    Todd, on todays XS Special and the XS Skeet, both are listed with adj. combs and are the same l 7/8's at both the comb and the heel. In 2010 catalog the Special only comes in 12 ga. and the Skeet comes in the 12 or the 20 ga. only. The XS was made, I think in all four guns back in like 2004 and or 2005 for like only two years before they went to 12 ga. only. If you access to a old browning catalog in those years you will find your answers. If not let me know and I will try to find one of my old catalogs and look up for you. Break-em all. Jeff

    You'll have to find a catalog for the exact dimensions but compared to the XS Sporting, the XS Skeet models had a high rib, less drop at the comb (1 1/2 vs 1 7/8")and the length of pull was shorter at 14 1/2 vs 14 7/8". One other difference is at the Skeet model came with 3 flush chokes and the Sporting came with 5 extended chokes. Many people, including myself, find the Skeet guns to work better for sporting clays and don't require an adjustable comb.

    I have the XS Skeet and love the gun.
    It`s available in 20, but the XS Specials are not. It`s also available with or without ADJ. comb. It`s also lighter the the XS Specials ( according to Browning`s site.)
    They all have parallel combs.
    If you decide on the XS Skeet, I would strongly suggest that you get one without the adj. comb. Shoot the gun for a while , and if you decide that you need an adj. comb, have a good stock guy do it.
    You`ll be better off in the long run , as the comb hardware on the Citori`s leaves a lot to be desired.
    Overall though, they`re great guns.

    Regards, Pete
