Browning Citori Grade IV Lightning

Description

The Browning Citori Grade IV Lightning is an over-under shotgun chambered in 12 gauge, 20 gauge, 28 gauge and .410. The Lightning is one of 12 shotgun variants in Browning’s Citori line, but what makes it unique is its steel receiver with a grayed finish and high-relief engraving depicting waterfowl and upland game birds. It has a grade III/IV walnut stock with a gloss finish. The stock has a “lightning style stock,” which means a traditional round knob grip and a full forearm–a style designed by John M. Browning. The Lightning also features a deluxe recoil pad that aims to reduce the impact of heavy loads.

Common features for the Citori line include back bored barrels (12 and 20 gauge only), a process that increases bore diameter resulting in higher shot velocity, reduced recoil, and more uniform shot patterns. Barrels are also fitted for interchangeable choke tubes. Its barrel selector system allows shooters to choose which barrel shoots first. Its automatic ejectors eject spent shells when the breech is open. And it has corrosion-resistant chrome-plated chambers for increased durability.

Browning recommends the Citori Grade IV Lightning for sport shooting.
