I'm looking for a sporting/skeet gun with adjustable choke. Saw a used Citori Gti for $1350. 28" ported barrels. Should I jump on it?

It's a fairly old Citor and those 28 inch barrels are rather out of vogue, if that matters to you. For $1350 it had better be pristine and have some extras such as extended choke tubes or nice case before I'd pony up that much money for it.

The Citori GTI was offered in the early 90s, pre-dating the X25 series. Early ones had Invector choke tubes, later ones used the current Invector Plus chokes. $1350 is a bit high, unless the gun is pristine. I feel the barrel group is heavier on the GTIs than the current 525/625 series, so 28" is not out of the question for good balance. The basic gun is the same as current Citoris.

I use my 32" Gti for sporting - bought it new when they were being discontinued for the 325 coming out. 15 years ago, they ran about $1000 at the time I bought mine. I had the top lever springs, firing pin springs, etc recently replaced when the gun hit about 90,000-100,000 rounds - works great.

If you like the 28" length, then, MO, go for it

I had an Ultra. The GTI's replacement. I didn't pay $1300 new. Great gun, but for that price it better come with some extras.

A better buy might be to purchase a new Browning Citori Gran Prix. These guns were in the 2009 catalog, but were discontinued for 2010. This gun had an MSRP of $3499, but are being closed out now at several dealers for around $1699. My local dealer (Guns Unlimited in Omaha) is selling 28" versions for $1595 and 30" versions for $1695. Comes with a hard case and 5 Midas Grade Invector Plus extended screw in chokes. Tough to beat for the money.

One of our club members picked up a Browning GTI last month for $800. It's a nice looking gun.

i once owned a browning gti and thought it was very nice swinging gun I shot registrered skeet and sporting clays with it. I really liked the low wide flat rib on that gun. The gun really fit me well and that is what it is all about in hitting targets. Kind of wish I still had it it around. I traded it for a beretta and that gun did not fit me right. the browning gti I had was made in the nineties. Nice wood on that gun too! You should be able to find one for a grand or less.
