Automatic Ejectors - A strong spring-loaded hammer blow, fires the Browning ejectors. The sharp hammer strike gives you more forceful ejection than the push imparted on competitor's ejectors.
The automatic ejectors eject fired shells when the breech is opened. Unfired shells are elevated for easy removal.
Chrome Chambers - All Citori shotguns feature chrome-plated chambers for corrosion resistance.
Locking Bolt and Hinge Pin - Citori is the only over and under available to feature a transverse-mounted, full-width tapered locking bolt. The tapered locking bolt engages a full-width tapered recess in the rear barrel lugs. The taper allows the bolt to seat deeper over years of wear. It's the reason people say a Browning wears in, not out.
Additionally, the full-width locking bolt and massive lugs ensure true barrel alignment and resist barrel torque, the natural tendency for the action to open during the shot.
On the Citori, a full-width hinge pin extends from one side of the receiver to the other for maximum strength.
Safety - Manual thumb safety, combined with barrel selector mechanism.
Safety Lock - All Browning firearms are shipped with a free trigger lock, cable lock, padlock, or chamber lock to assist you in the safe storage of your firearm.
Trigger - The hammers are powered by a strong coil-type mainspring, which gives certain primer ignition.
Fit and Finish - The Citori has uncommon quality in craftsmanship and function. All critical components of the Citori are machined for exacting precision. Components are then heat treated before being hand-fitted to the action using the traditional lamp-black and file method. All metal-to-metal and wood-to-metal fits are tight and precise.
Back-Bored Barrels - All Citori shotguns feature back-bore barrels. These barrels have a bore diameter increased to its maximum specification. This reduces the friction of the shot charge against the barrel wall, resulting in increased shot velocity. Because there is less constriction or pressure from the forcing cones on a shot charge, there are fewer deformed pellets; this leads to a more uniform pattern than with the standard barrels.
