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.
Barrels-All Citori 12 gauge shotguns feature back-bored barrels and the Invector-Plus choke tube system. All Browning target shotguns feature barrel porting. The shooter benefits from reduced recoil and because the porting is toward the topside of each barrel, barrel jump is reduced as well.
Chrome Chambers-All Citori shotguns feature chrome-plated chambers for corrosion resistance.
Hinge Pin-The 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.
Sights-The XS Skeet features the Hi-Viz Pro-Comp sight system. This system consists of eight different interchangeable colored light pipes so the bead can be adjusted to match varied light conditions or shooting styles.
Trigger – The hammers are powered by a strong coil-type mainspring, which gives certain primer ignition. With the barrel selector, you can choose which barrel fires on the first pull of the single trigger. The second pull fires the remaining barrel. All XS Series models are supplied with the Triple Trigger System: three interchangeable trigger shoes, a wide checkered surface, a wide smooth surface, and a narrow smooth canted surface.
Rib Selection: The XS Skeet utilizes high-post ribs keeping the shooter's head high on the stock, allowing a fast, unobstructed view of the target.
A ventilated side rib on this model helps cool hot barrels in the heat of competition. Some shooters like the slightly reduced wind resistance-a special advantage in windy weather.
