Video Review: Browning Citori Hunter Grade II Over/Under Shotgun

This 16-gauge boxlock shotgun has everything you need, and nothing you don't.

posted on March 31, 2023

The 16-gauge seems to be experiencing something of a renaissance in the shooting world, and for good reason: It strikes a terrific balance between felt recoil for the shooter and excellent downrange performance. The newest addition to the array of 16-gauge choices is Browning's Citori Hunter Grade II, an over/under shotgun built for utility ... but styled with heirloom-quality beauty. In short, this 16-gauge boxlock shotgun has everything you need, and nothing you don't.

In this great video from our friends at American Rifleman, you'll learn why the Citori Hunter Grade II made our coveted " NRA Gun of the Week" list, and why you already want one (even if you don't know it yet).
