Browning extends the 725 Citori line this year with the addition of a 28-gauge version built on a scaled-down action. This sweetheart of a shotgun is perfect for upland birds. It balances well, and is a quick, nimble pointer. Our test team really enjoyed shooting this gun, though its conservative design, while giving it the unmistakable look of a Browning, didn’t bowl us over.
