Hi all,
Its been a while. I retired from the military and am pretty broken but want to get back into shooting clays (everything but Trap)
Looking at getting this set.
Anything I should know or be weary of? Seems like a great deal. I played around with a citori 20 gauge and like how it felt in hand.
I am probably going to focus on the 28 and 410 because I had my shoulder replaced, but I'll shoot the 20 every now and then. No more 12 for me, though.
thoughts?
advice?
I thought of going the briley tube route, but I for some reason like the multi barrel set for the simplicity.

Any issue with the inertia triggers resetting on 410?

Thanks.

What set? There are no photos and only a minimal description. You seem to be alluding to a three-barrel Citori Skeet set. If you're going to shoot several disciplines then you'll want choke tubes. Fixed skeet chokes will not serve you well for sporting. Avoid a set with 26inch barrels as they will be a tough sell down the road.....and yes you will sell that set. Finally, with the gun assembled, confirm that the opening lever is right of center. Even if the gun needs some repair, a Citori is usually relatively inexpensive to fix.

That would make you a great all-around set up. I know I'd be happy to have it in my safe. If the price is acceptable, grab it.

Its acceptable to me.

my wife, on the other hand...

I'm clearing out my safe. Its about 4000. Which, frankly isn't a bad deal all things considered. Gonna spend some extra on a fitting and some more chokes.

How much will you use the 410?

A new CXS 20/28 combo is $3k. Virtually the same gun I believe. A 1150fps 28ga loaf would be a cream puff from that gun.

I have look at this gun at guns Unlimited in Omaha. Nice gun. I have bought guns from them and they are good to deal with.

My intent is to use 410 for skeet and the 28 for most everything else. I was looking at the Joel Etchen 28/410 combo but I wanted the larger 20 gauge frame.

Case included is really getting me a 410 barrel for 700 dollars anyway.

If it came as a set, then the 410 shouldn't be an issue.
You better hurry, I may grab that if I think about it too long.

I agree the citori 20ga frame is just right.

I’ve also inquired about this same set, last fall, speaking directly with guns unlimited, at that time they had both 30” & 32” barrel lengths, and several sets of each. Was told they are new / current production, was also willing to send pics showing the wood differences. Same price, could add adj comb for $195.00, I believe it to be normal stock for them. Still on my want list...
Edit to add, this special sporting clays has the mid height rib, no palm swell, 2” drop at heel, 14 1/4 lop, weight of 32” set was 7.6 lbs. If comparing to cxs which is flat rib, 2 1/4” drop, 14 3/4” lop, rh palm swell.
Was interested in getting a “spec” sheet from them, just emailed the info and pics.
Hope this helps, seems a nice set to me at a good price.

Congrats! I've seldom, if ever, regreted an expensive purchase if it brings me joy, pride and/or satisfaction.
Guns Unlimited in Omaha are great guys and was my go-to gun store when I lived in Omaha. They also proudly support all the local School Trap teams (and there are more than 40) with great deals for the kids on shells, guns, etc. I would not hesitate to do bidness with them over the net or phone.

With your bionic shoulder, I expect you'll get pretty handy with the .410 and 28 gauges!

Planning on it. Gonna hit the patterning board when I get a chance. Maybe Friday. Only 3 chokes was a little disappointing. SK IC and M. They sell this as a SC set, but without the chokes.
Wood was better than i expected. Cleaned off the preservative, greased the hinge points. Just waiting for work to leave me alone.

A bit of a necro-post, but I was wondering how you like this shotgun set?
