Citori Value questions for new guy

3812 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Martinpicker
I have a couple Citori's locally that are for sale and I'm not sure of the value based on the asking price. Looking for a nice first trap gun, but a deal is better. Let me know your thoughts on the following:

1973 Browning Citori 3", fixed chokes, looks to be in great shape functionally and cosmetically - $895

1989 Browning Citori Trap Combo, comes with 1 single barrel ported 34". second barrel is 32" full and modified O/U, in a nice hard leather wrapped case - $1900

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks Joe...but is that a good price? I can't find a similar one posted here to compare, and the only ones I find online are older listings. I did find the same setup that sold in April of 2012 for $1100, so was that a killer deal, or is this price to high?

In my opinion they are both priced close to fair. The first is a Grade I Citori hunter, or field. $850. The second is the desirable 34/32 combo. Though it has fixed chokes, and probably a top single, which takes from the the value, not function, it does come with a case. Maybe $1800 on the combo. I would not consider them deals though.

I bought a 1976 Citori Trap on this site for $800 plus shipping. Last week I bought a Citori Trap Grade 3 with choke tubes for $1100. Very nice guns, both. I would think the combo would be the way to go IF it is good shape and IF you v
can get it for a hundred or two less. Martinpicker
