General Specs: Browning, Year 1980, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 15oz, IC/F, LOP 14 1/4", DAH 2 1/2", DAC 1 5/8"
Serial Number: 10893PM153

The Browning Citori has been THE over/under shotgun for American hunters and shooters for over 2 decades.  They are solid, functional guns at least, and some, like this Grade V Hand Engraved, model are quite stunningly beautiful as well as functional.  This Grade V, sn10893PM153 was made in 1980 as part of a small run of hand engraved guns with deeply chiseled foliate and game scene engraving almost identical to the Browning Superposed Diana Grade.  These guns had nicely figured walnut, factory pads, and in 1980, fixed chokes.  The gun we are offering here is in new, unfired condition an comes with a Browning fitted hard case that is also new.  The gun is choked from the factory at IC/F, so it will work well for upland game and sporting clays.  The gun has not been fired, as there are no primer marks on the standing breech, and there is no sign of wear or use on the gun.  The gun has been assembled a few times.  The Browning Citori action and Japanese manufacturing methods and materials have made the Browning Citori one of the most purchased guns in this country and around the world.  Finding these hand engraved Grade V’s is not common place, and the gun is certainly different than the many machine engraved guns being offered for sale today.  For your shooting and collecting pleasure, this one is available now.  Thanks for looking.
