Browning reintroduces the legendary Citori White Lightning over-and-under shotgun: a great and welcome comeback for the discerning shotgun hunter, shooter, and collector!
For those enthusiasts interested in a traditional shotgun built to excel in both the field and on the range alike, Browning is pleased to announce the reintroduction of the legendary Citori White Lightning over and under shotgun.
The new White Lightning is built on a silver nitride finished receiver and features a new engraving pattern; components such as the steel receiver and trigger guard are left "in the white" – meaning that they're not blued or color case-hardened, but left in the natural, polished color of the metal, providing a luxurious contrast to the rest of the shotgun. Nitriding, a durable coating process, provides a high level of protection against corrosion, scratching and natural elements with a uniquely elegant and attractive look.
The receiver of the new Browning Citori White Lightning over-and-under shotgun houses the long lasting, full-width hinge pin and tapered locking lug design the Citori is respected for. Blued barrels feature ivory front and mid bead sights. The lightning-style stock and forearm are hewn from Grade III/IV American walnut with a rich, oil finish, and the stock features an Inflex recoil pad. Stylish new checkering patterns provide an updated appearance and enhanced grip.
The Citori White Lightning is chambered for 12-gauge, 3" shells, features Back-Bored technology and chrome chambers, Vector Pro lenghtened forcing cones, and includes three Invector-Plus black Midas Grade extended choke tubes in Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder constrictions. Available barrel lengths are 26" and 28".
The MSRP for the Browning Citori White Lightning is set at $2,669.99 for the U.S. market; no word yet concerning export availability and pricing.
