Just a tip for any Citori owners out there who like to do a bit of spray cleaning with CLR. If you get just a bit of that oil into the trigger Piston bore you'll have a Citori that won't reset after the first barrel fires. A further symtom is that if you push the trigger forward it will then fire.

What is happening is that when you pull the trigger the Trigger Piston is driven deeper into the small bore in the trigger body and can't return quickly enough because that oil creates a vacuum that the return spring can't overcome quickly.

Solution for this issue is to remove the trigger and clean it completely finishing up with a dip in acetone to insure it's absolutely bone dry. If you insist on using a lubricant in this area use dry graphite powder. BTW a really quick and dirty fix is to pull the buttstock and dip the rear of the complete action in a small bucket of acetone with a lot of agitation.

PS; I learned this lesson the "hard way". Took me 3 weeks of poking before I finally stumbled on the actual cause.

thank you so much for this write up, including the part #'s needed,

I called browning direct and it was so easy,

My daughters Citori was not firing the second shot (top barrel) occasionally the last few rounds, I had suspected I may have pushed some debris from the face back into the firing pin slot (I've got to stop cleaning that gun!)

I easily pulled and replaced both pins, bottom was very smooth, top pin was slightly pitted,

Would have never tried it without your instructions, Thanks again!
