I'm in a bind here boys....i was all set to buy a 625 golden clays as I can get one for about $3300 brand new but then I saw the 725 teaser come out. Any thoughts on what I should do, reccomendations, comments? Right now I'm leaning towards waiting on the 725.

625 in a heartbeat! The 725 is totally unproven. Only offered in 12 gauge, new trigger and choke systems. I don't wanna' be a ginnypig, do you!?! Besides, who wants a bastardized Citori anyway...

The Golden Clays is a pretty shotgun...but if you like the features on the 725, handle both and see which one you like the best. I don't care for some of the features on the 625...but everyone is different on what they want in a shotgun. The 725 does look interesting.

Good Luck

I've tried them all. O/U and Semi. Broke down and wrote the check for a 725. Been in love since. :)

Wow, this is an old post. Slugo seems to have changed tunes since they have come out though. I think his queston has been answered , hahaha :-)

Yeah, it's hard to even fathom him saying that after what he says now. I wasn't really enthused by it either until I shot one, the rest is history.

625 Golden Clay over a 725 sporting. I know I couldn't shoot one better than the other.
So I would get the better looking gun. The 625 Golden Clays is the clear winner at $3300.

I would probably select the 625 Golden Clays. The only thing about the 625 that I'm not too crazy about is the short radius of the grip. It just seems a bit tight to me, but it might be a matter of just getting use to it.

As far as the working parts of the gun, I'll take the 625 over the 725. The 625 has the standard Citori action and trigger system like all Citori shotguns before it for the past 40 years (or whatever). They are a known quantity, durable, and simple to work on if it ever needs any repairs. The 625 is also a little heavier which is quite desirable in a target gun.
