Morning, all!

I am just curious: anyone know what year is the cutoff (or, changeover) telling a 28ga Citori owner whether they have a “Type 1” or “Type 2-3” 2’ga Citori, when doing things like sourcing parts?

I have two (2) different 28ga Citoris I need to order some receiver tuneup parts for; however; one (the “Special Skeet”) left the factory in 1980 whereas the second (a 425 Miller’s embossed) left the factory in 2004.

I am at a loss thus far in determining whether I need to order “Type 2-3” parts for both guns or, “Type 1” parts for the 1980 gun and “Type 2-3” parts for the 2004 gun?

Thanks in advance for any insight / guidance ... {hs#

buckshot, THANK YOU!!!! {hs#

Gosh, I’d’ve never guessed “Type 1” spanned a single year, let alone the different periods encompassing Type “2” vs “3”!

MUCH appreciated (and I am confident of assist to other SGW members in the future)! {hs#

Man, I hate to do this but, “rant” on ...

For the love of Pete, ordering over the phone with Browning on 12/15/20 was a sheer delight with the employee “Christina” - competent, friendly, clear, concise communications - just a pleasure to drop >$230 for replacement and backup parts ...

Today; however; what a contrast and so negative I have a splitting headache! A male answered and what ensued was constant interrupting, over-talking (quote: “Sir, why do you need a mainspring guide? WE HARDLY EVER REPLACE THOSE”) and what eventually devolved into what amounted to intentional efforts at botching the rather complex order up! (Some pre-‘96 parts, different gauges, etc. but somehow, not a problem last week :roll:

Trying to remember the last time I had to struggle over the phone to spend $250 ... oh that’s right, never.

The point of this post is, if you need to order parts from Browning, hope you get (or ask specifically to speak with) “Christina.” If otoh a male answers whose name begins with “S”, good luck!

Rant “off.”
