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.
