Clay Shooting USA Says the Browning Citori CX is “…A Great Deal.”
“I’ll go out on a limb here and say the Browning was the first manufacturer to offer a ‘Crossover’ shotgun (the now discontinued Citori GTS),” opined Kelly in his article. “That gun’s genetic material passed on to Browning’s newest and perhaps best ‘Crossover’ offering.”
“…Browning was the first manufacturer to offer a ‘Crossover’ shotgun…”
Kelly goes on to outline the CX’s tasteful gold-embellished receiver graphics and Grade II walnut stock with a fairly high-combed butt stock to match the mid-height barrel rib. He was also pleased with the recoil pad and forend contours. “…Browning elected to use their wonderfully efficient Inflex recoil pad…The Inflex offers significant recoil reduction in a design that allows a snag free gun mount if you shoot low gun, yet offers a bit of memory curve if you start with the gun up the shoulder. The forend design is a hybrid – a cross between a field style and a beavertail. It feels just right…”
“For the recreational skeet, trap and sporting clays shooter looking for the ‘one gun does all,’ look no further than the Citori CX.”
“All in all, the new Citori CX does well what it is designed to do – and is a pretty handsome gun to boot,” Kelly concluded. “…The CX, like all Browning Citoris, is a great deal of gun for a modest amount of money. It’s superbly fitted and finished. For the recreational skeet, trap and sporting clays shooter looking for the ‘one gun does all,’ look no further than the Citori CX.”
