I usually hang in the A5 section ,but today I saw something that Citori people might want to hear about. While I was shooting at my weekly (weakly?) Sporting Clays today, one of the guys on our squad showed up with a brand new Citori he just got at the local Sportsman's Whorehouse. (I don't know what variant of Citori.) Admittedly I know virtually nothing about those over-n-under contraptions- I'll stick with my A5s thank-you-very-much-for-asking. Anyway, we were about halfway through the course and as he shut the gun- the butt stock snapped off right at the grip!! He could not believe what had just happened. (Neither could the rest of us!) We were all standing right there, and could plainly see he just closed the gun as everyone else has done a bazillion times with other Citoris. He didn't slam it shut, he didn't bang it against anything, he merely closed the action. It had to be some type of defect in the grain somehow hidden from view. In all my years, I have never seen anything like that. It is going back to the store tomorrow. I am guessing Browning will make it right? The shame is it was a beautiful piece of wood. He is concerned now the replacement won't match the forearm. Certainly Browning will match the wood-one would think?
