I was lucky enough to score a 525 with 32" bbls about 3 years ago. I shoot it as my standard for ATA and games. Have mot had one glitch. Probably put 150 rds on slow weeks. 300 on regular week's.

If you don't mind saying, what did you pay for it? I paid $3,000 for my 30" Grade III Sporting 525 in 16 Gauge, NIB. The box had the original retail price (from the dealer at some earlier date) of $2,895.00. I have since added some chokes an a Browning Green Canvas and Leather Hard Case. I sold another one last year, without the case for $4,000.00.

With regard to firing pins, I just started having problems with light strikes on the bottom barrel. So far it is only happening with one lot number of old Remington Game loads, but I think I am going to have a new pin installed. Never had a firing pin issue with any of the (many) Citori's I have owned over the years and only recently found out that the pins are different between the top and bottom barrels.
