I have a browning Citori made in 1984. I have noticed that when I fire the over barrel only there is a slight indentation on the primer of the unfired shell in the under barrel. When I fire the under barrel the is no indentation in the unfired over barrel shell.

Any ideas? I am calling Browning Monday morning and not shooting it until I talk to them.

If I do have to get it fixed, are the licensed Browning repair facilities (Jacksonville) as good as the factory repair?

Thanks

Welcome to the Forum

Calling Browning may help get clarity on what is happening. I suspect it is a normal outcome of recoil resetting the trigger to fire the lower barrel. Take care...

I have a rather more attention getting but similar problem with an old LeFever SXS - my favorite upland gun. When I fire the right barrel first and then the left barrel, all is normal; when, however, I fire the left barrel first (analogous to firing the top barrel first in an O/U), when I do that, both barrels fire. A bit more than a light hit. I suspect a worn sear, hammer, spring. A trip to a gunsmith is in the offing.

Since Browning uses inertia firing pins in the CITORI, I suspect a weak firing pin return spring.
