Is the new 20 gauge Citori 725 any lighter – or better – than earlier Citori’s in 20 gauge? My first shotgun was a 20 gauge Superposed Lightning I bought in 1962. I gave it to a son several years ago. Now I’m in my 80’s and wish I had it again. So, looking for a light weight gun to carry on the hunt.

Triggers are better. The weights are about the same.

The 20 ga 725 field model is about 6.5 lbs. There's a 725 Feather model that weights just under 6 lbs in a 20 ga.

You could also look at the 20ga Citori CXS which is advertised to be 6 lbs, 3 oz with the 28" barrel. The CXS will be a little less money than the 725.

Best of luck on your quest.

I have the 725 20 GA feather and I absolutely love it. Just under 6lbs and it carries, points and shoots great! I am 60 years and wanted a lighter shotgun and this is great. I shoot this gun better than any shotgun I have ever owned.

As Randy Wakeman advises, do not trust the estimated weight of shotguns posted on manufacturers web sites. Case in point: the Browning Citori CXS 20 gauge with 28” long barrels that I purchased weighs 7.3 lbs on my digital scale. My advice, look for verified weights of shotguns, not just people quoting from manufacturers web sites.

I am tempted to start a thread and include in it weights and measurements of shotguns I have handled, asking others to contribute to the thread. I know weights of shotguns vary, even for the same model, and there will be inaccuracies in the scales used to weigh the shotguns. Thoughts?

Please do, I've considered doing the same. Call it Actual Shotgun Weights or something...

My 725 field 20ga tips the scales at the specified 6 lb 9oz . I love carrying it for upland . I hunt both grouse and pheasants with it . I like the pistol grip better on the 725 than I did the pow grip on the lighting 20ga I had .
