I figured that before online gun buying goes away I'd pick up something I've wanted for a long time.

Many moons ago I had a Grade 1 Citori and, while I loved it, thought that a semi-auto was what I needed instead of really learning how to shoot my Citori. My old one had 30 inch, full and modified barrels and was heavy. Still, it swung beautifully and I blamed the arrow and not the archer. Yes, from the moment I sold it, I regretted my decision. Soon after that my expendable cash flow dried up for several years. Fast forward to today...

I was browsing the pages of gunbroker.com and decided to search for O/U shotguns and spotted a nice 1985 Grade 1 and "pulled the trigger." I received the shipping notification this morning. Now, the waiting begins.

It is, indeed. It also has seven different choke tubes, three of which are original, the choke wrench and owners manual.

Got it home last week and was too busy to even look it over in the sunlight. I believe this was a one owner shotgun as everything is with it! From the choke tube wrench to the original keys for the case in the small envelope. The Invector choke warning sticker is on the case!

Yes, there are a few dings here and there, but the barrels are clean as can be and the action is still tight. The last old Citori I had opened easily with a push of the lever. This one I pretty much have to open it with both hands to get the hammers reset! I love it!

$1400 plus shipping of $55. We'll be heading out to the trap range soon and I'll let you know how that goes, though I cannot imagine I won't love it!
