Dating a browning citori
The top rib’s width on the XS Special is tapered and parallel to the barrel.
The barrels are 30″ long and ported (image left) to supposedly reduce recoil, but I haven’t found to be that noticeable – other than being louder for anyone standing next to the shooter.
When I pulled the gun up I noticed that my jaw was pushing the stock to the right.
It made getting the mid-bead and front-site aligned a bit awkward so the first adjustment was cast.

I bought my Browning Citori XS Special after having decided to go all-in and become a competitive skeet shooter.
I looked at the entire Citori and Cynergy lines for the gun I was going to purchase.
I had my heart set on the Cynergy Sporting with an adjustable comb, but was unable to get what I wanted for the price I was willing to pay.
When I first got the gun, my first task was to get the comb adjusted for me (image left).When I opened the Citori, I found it to be a little stiff to open as one might expect with a brand new gun.
