looking at an older Browning Citori. I understand the first 5 digits are the serial #. the next 2 lettering are pn which makes it a 1989 yr. last 3 are n43. nothing in the growing search shows this designation. I think the 43 are a Citori designation but what does the n mean? any help would be appreciated.

N43 is the code for a 12 gauge, conventional stock Citori.

Not enough information. Does it have screw-in chokes? And if not, are the chokes OK with you? How far to the right is the lever when it’s locked? As the gun wears, it moves left. When new they’re a little to the right of center. How about the fit and finish?

None of that can be discerned from the one picture.

thanks for the reply. my main question was the serial # designation. I haven't seen the gun in person but the pics were decent. lever is right when locked some blueing wear under the gun and 6 screw in chokes 2 extended aftermarket chokes. deal wasn't made seller wanted to much for the gun and wasn't willing to deal so im on the search for something else.

thanks everyone for the help
