This was posted in Feb, 2014 and I have the same marking on my Citori. "Hi All, I have a 1982 Citori with 28" fixed choked barrels and a straight english stock. The barrels say: 2 3/4 in. shells, but the last 3 numbers of the serial number are "103", which according to Browning's serial number chart makes this gun a 12 ga. "3 1/2" Gr.1 Hunting" model. :shock: How can this be, if the barrels say "2 3/4"? By the way, the serial numbers match on all parts of the gun, except the "103" is left off all but the receiver serial number. I am confused, can anyone out there illuminate me?" This is confusing as the 3 1/2" as said in the only response to the above question weren't introduced until 1988, and the Citori I (and he) have were made in 1982. My serial number is 13337PY103 English Stock Straight Tang Short Field/Sporter 2 hole Brackett Fixed chokes On Barrel: Special Steel 12ga 2 3/4" 28" I , as the above, am confused.
