Browning® designed the Citori 725 Sporting Over/Under Shotgun specifically for winning sporting clays competition as well as trap and skeet. Browning focused much of the 725's innovative design on a low profile receiver. Positioning the barrels lower in the receiver changes the relationship of your cheek and eye to the rib, putting face, eyes, and hands closer to the centerline of the gun. This "in-in" feeling results in a better fit and natural point ability. The 725's low profile receiver also improves recoil control by pushing the gun straight back into the shoulder instead of the muzzle jumping up, which makes getting an aimed, second shot off quicker. The strength of the Citori 725's receiver is not sacrificed by using undersized trunnions and narrow, tapered pins to lock up the receiver as some low profile designs do. The 725 still uses a rugged full-width hinge pin, and the transverse mounted locking bolt design of the original Citori. The Citori 725 features the Fire Lite mechanical trigger design that delivers a light, smooth pull. By not relying on inertia to reset the second hammer, a mechanical trigger ensures you get an immediate second shot, without worrying about your gun unexpectedly doubling. To prevent sporting clays shooters from getting worn down from recoil so they can still be on top of their game at the end of the day, the Citori 725 Sporting uses ported barrels and Browning's Inflex Technology recoil pad. The Inflex recoil pad utilizes directional deflection to pull the comb down and away from the shooter's face, creating greater comfort and allowing for faster follow up shots. The Browning Citori 725 Sporting comes with 5 Invector-DS choke tubes that feature a brass alloy band at the base of the tube to seal out gas and grit from getting between the barrel and tube, making the tubes easy to remove even after extensive shooting. Invector-DS choke tubes and Vector Pro lengthened forcing cones minimize shot deformation and maximize pattern uniformity. The Browning Citori 725 Sporting Over/Under Shotgun is a highly functional modern firearm, utilizing the most innovative designs to give sporting clay shooters a competitive edge.
