Browning Grade III Citori 725 O/U

Picture 2 of 7

Browning kicks off its High Grade Program in 2013, a deal where each year, the company will add to high-end firearms to their existing lines. One of the first will be the Grade III Citori 725, a 12-gauge over/under available in 26-inch or 28-inch barrel lengths. So what makes this Citori different from some of the others that have been offered over the years? How about high-relief engraving on the receiver of pheasants on one side, flying mallards on the other and a hunting dog on the bottom with a silver nitride finish. The stock and forearm boast Grade III/IV walnut (hence the name) and is adorned with 22-lines-per-inch precision checkering. ($3,730; browning.com)
