Browning Citori - Origin


The Browning Citori ("Citori" has no meaning and is an advertising construct) was designed and introduced in 1973 as a more affordable version of the highly successful Browning Superposed shotgun manufactured in Belgium by Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN). Browning Arms Company is a wholly owned entity of FN.

The last completed design, and possibly the most elegant firearm design, completed by famous small arms designer John Moses Browning, the Browning Superposed has been a top seller and highly prized firearm among sportsmen and shotgun collectors for nearly a century since introduction in 1931. FN's marketing challenge was to design and manufacture a modern over-under shotgun with all of the styling themes of the Browning Superposed, but manufacture and offer it at prices affordable to the everyday sportsman and competitive shooter. Selection of the manufacturing site became Japan (Miroku Corporation) to satisfy the required high quality and volume of production requirements. Over the decades, the Citori has proven to be everything FN wanted and more -- a high quality, reliable, yet an affordable, contemporary, fully featured shotguns designed from the timeless classic.

Famous quotes containing the word origin:

    There are certain books in the world which every searcher for truth must know: the Bible, the Critique of Pure Reason, the Origin of Species, and Karl Marx’s Capital.
    —W.E.B. (William Edward Burghardt)

    Someone had literally run to earth
    In an old cellar hole in a byroad
    The origin of all the family there.
    Thence they were sprung, so numerous a tribe
    That now not all the houses left in town
    Made shift to shelter them without the help
    Of here and there a tent in grove and orchard.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    All good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
