The one I got to test fire seemed to fit a wide variety of folks - tall/short and fat/thin
Personally, I couldn't tell too much difference between it and the 525

(And I STILL thought you hated 12 gauges!)

read my prior posts regarding the 725. Totally different feel, balance and lighter weight than any previous 12 gauge Citori. Like comparing a mail truck to a Porsche 911... ;)

I don't buy it Slugo, and neither did my gun writer friend who had the gun and has been reviewing guns for decades. There was 1/16" difference in height. He DID like the barrels - said they were closer to his FN Superposeds than the others. No one could tell a difference in the triggers as we had 5 other Brownings there that day.

Overall, a decent gun, and everyone liked the fact for once the price was lower than the previous model. It should last and shoot like any decent Browning O/U has, and if I wasn't looking REAL hard at a Beretta semi, it would definitely be on the short list since Perazzis for me will require a Powerball winning ticket! :D

We're happy for you ...congratulations....

I'm sure they'll make a 20ga version by next year ...so leave a little room in the safe...just in case ...:D ( or maybe by Xmas...)....so it doesn't get lonely in there all by itself.

Thanks BJP. I'm betting the sub gauge models will be out by years end...

Nice, are you still looking for an 1100 LT20?

zip, not at the moment. I have some guns to sell, then I'll get back to a nice preowned 20 gauge autoloader... :)
