Here is my new to me Citori 16, bought yesterday. The particulars are: It is a 28" White Lightning, was produced in 2017 as part of a special run of these guns for 2018 shot show. Weighs 6 lbs. 14 oz. It is in new condition, and fits me so well - what great guns these are! I found it somewhat by accident at the local Scheels store - had just been traded in that day. I'm not sure it has even been fired - if it has surely not much....

I thank folks on this forum for guidance and suggestions last month when I started my search. I look forward to shooting it in the next couple of weeks before pheasant season ends here in Colorado.

Very nice!! But curious, the resolution is a bit fuzzy on my screen and judging by your moniker...I think I only see one trigger?!? Smile

Fun stuff, enjoy....

Nice shotgun and modern shotguns can handle steel if needed. Enjoy.

Ha - good one! You are correct the gun seems to be missing a trigger doesnít it? Confused

Thanks everyone for your great comments!

I forgot to mention - the gun just came with 2 choke tubes (F, M). Iím going to need at least a couple more (gun uses standard Invector). Anyone have suggestions for where I can buy Invector or compatible tubes?

Many thanks,

Doug/double trigger

invector chokes are easy to find on ebay or gb. my experience is, they tend to be tighter than what they are marked.

Congrats, those are great guns! Somebody already added a recoil pad for you.
