Hi all. I am trying to get do it all gun as I am new to the clay games. I think I have settled on a Citori CXS which they describe as the Sporting model. I guess they also have a Trap version that is CXT. I will mostly shoot Trap, but may well delve into the other games. For that reason I don’t think I want the Trap version but rather a CXS with a Bear tooth comb kit or even adjustable comb for switching back and forth. Sound idea? I ordered a comb kit for my BPS field and that got me thinking. Thanks.

They will all work but if I had to choose just one it would be the CX for all games

I think the CX with adjustable comb is a good option for an all around

If I step up to a 725 which best fits my idea? Sporting?

I bought a cxs last sept. as my first o/u and have been satisfied. I too shoot a variety of clay games, baisically everything but skeet. I did not want the cxt because it has ported barrels and they are hard to clean, loud, contribute to hearing loss, and give you zero advantage.

Before deciding on a specific make and model gun, mount, shoulder. and swing the gun at the dealers to make sure it fits you, and swings and feels fine. Gun fit is VERY important, and if you can find the perfect one before buying, it will make your shooting pure pleasure.

Was told that all Browning target shotguns for 2020 will have an adjustable POI rib. Add the adjustable comb and have a POI range 10 to 15 inches of adjustment available. Will make the gun friendly for most any clay game and shooter preference. Check out Guns Unlimited in Omaha, NE for details.

I might be late to this thread but I lived this experience.
I found this out for myself. I bought a nice 425. Think of it as a high grade CXS.
I found it to be a miserable Trap gun but of course good for Skeet.
I decided to switch to the CXT during the lockdown.
I found the CXT to be a much more pleasant Trap gun but surprisingly just as good in
Skeet. YMMV.
