Seriously considering jumping on a Citori CX with 32" barrels. Can't find a lot of talk about them. What's the opinions here?
Thanks!

I bought a 32" CX in 2017 (about this time of year) and shoot it mostly for trap. After 15,000 or so rounds it has been perfect. I also do pretty well with it for sporting clays.

I like the way it fits better than the Beretta's. Although for me, with the long barrels, it is a little unwieldy at skeet and some 5 stand courses. I have other guns I use for them.

I like the looks of the gun, however the gloss finish that was so awesome to me when new gets scratched extremely easy. After many battle scars it still looks good, though.

The CX and CXS models use the same tried and true Citori action that Browning has been selling for decades. As long as you’re OK with the cosmetics, you can’t go wrong. You just need to ask yourself whether you want the 60/40 POI of the CX or the 50/50 of the CXS. You might also look at the LOP and make sure you’re good with the shorter length of the CX.

Probably the best new O/U for the price on the market today. I prefer the slightly raised rib and slightly beefier stock of the CX versus the CSX. Same tried and true Citori action. Very dependable and very easy to work on if it should need replacement of a part sometime down the road.

You can pay more for a shotgun if you WANT to, but you don't really HAVE to to get a reliable long-lasting gun.

I picked up a 30" about a year ago used. I love it, and the best part, NO PORTED BARRELS!
Boy I hate ported barrels.

I have a 4 year old Browning Crossover Target, same as the current CX. This has been a 5 star shotgun. I also own a 20 gauge Browning CXS. Got rid of all my other shotguns!

Won a bid on gunbroker for a slightly used CX with 32” barrels. The wait begins!

I own some hard cases (Browning, SKB, off-brand) but I rarely use them. When I head to the range, I put my gun in a Boyd slip case and go. About the only time I'll use a hard case is if I'm traveling or carpooling with buddies to a shoot. In other words, if I think there's going to be a bunch of stuff tossed into the back of the vehicle I look for a bit more protection. If I can maintain control and just have to drive the gun to the range, soft cases are preferred.

I like them but the LOP is crazy short.

Got to shoot 100 rounds through it.
I’m brand new to over unders, so it was a little different! I like it.
Those 32” barrels sure didn’t swing the same as the 28” 11-87 light contour barrel on the first doubles! I got them moving better as the day went on.
I like it overall.

I went with the SKB Hybrid case.

Thanks!

I bought a CX white with 30 bbl's. Love the gun, handles great, low recoil, Gun just feels good to shoot. I have had 325's 425's , but the CX just feels better. I use her only for sporting clays.

Nice! the wood on the buttstock has some character. I like it.

i recently bought a CX "white" with 32s. Also have a crossover target with 30s. I think I prefer the 30s but this 32 gun was a bit of a standout with the wood and I had to have it. Hasn't seemed to negatively affect my shooting.

I've been considering a set of full length tubes for the 30" gun but my new idea is a cxs 20/28ga combo and buy 410 tubes to go in the 20ga barrel set if I just have to have 410. Cost me a little more but I can't take it with me right? :)

The Citori action in 12 is not normally my cup of tea but I'm very impressed with the CX. I've helped two new shooters get set up in them purely because it just fit. Lined up the 686 SP1 Sport, CX and Fabarm Elos. Both guys mounted and shot the CX best. Not always the case, but an incredible buy for what you get. Dropping some weight in the barrels was a good move by Browning.
