Wifowler I know where their is a last Generation Gran Lightning for sale it is a new gun but shelf worn 1 nasty dent above the toe about 2" it has 26" barrels they had 2699 on it but now marked at 2195( dent?). If interested send me a pm. Mb

Added my full choke measures .628 " with a .662" bore that is .034" constriction my modified tube measures .640" that's .022" constriction and the ic measures .650" .012" constriction. I'll let the clay targets and live birds tell me what else I need. I am all ready thinking atleast 1 open skeet tube and 1 a little tighter for a improved skeet. Shells wise I have more than all the stores in town from slugs to 9 's. Really looking forward to this. Yeah I would have chosen a unadorned receiver finish in silver nitride or blue but the pow grip and round knob at the top of my list with 28" barrels. Mb

Bob, very interesting notes on your factory chokes. Mine are quite different (factory chokes). My IC has .006” constriction, M is .008”, full .038”. I was shocked at the measurements, and the patterns bear out the constrictions. The full choke tube is significantly over choked. My gun is a 2014 model, Superlight with 28” barrels, steel receiver.

Got a couple of rounds of trap in with it sunday afternoon 1 oz of 8's shot a few with the IC and got weak breaks so I went to the top barrel and Mod choke. Mod choke gave me solid breaks. I've got a huge pile of 48"×44" pieces of card board just paint a ctr in them and weave in my smooth wire fence with 20,30,& 40 yard lines to use on pattern tests. I'll get those chokes confirmed and figured out before trusting them. Mb

PS gf1 my chokes that came with the gun are the extended tube Midas chokes not the flush mount invectors of my miroku A-5 Sweet Sixteen.

Old Ornry sorry to hear that. The gun I bought a White Lightning was called the Shot show special not a regular item maybe. Mb

Thanks BK I haven't bought a new shotgun for quite awhile. Soon as deer hunting is over I'll go east and find some roosters. Mb

Found this after a few years of off-and-on looking. They didn’t make very many. Should have any day now. 16 ga. Should be around 6 lbs 4 oz. 26” tubes.

My gun is that one, save a blued receiver and 28” barrels, weighs 6#14 oz. My gun was made in 2013, bought new from Kones Korner in 2015. It’s a very nice gun.

However, like most of the “H” pattern safety/barrel selector guns, when the bottom barrel is selected and I quickly move the safety from safe to fire (such as a bird flushing), I frequently shove the safety inadvertently to the center. This is no man’s land, safety still engaged. What I do on this gun and most others with this arrangement is select the top barrel to shoot first so that I always get the safety off. It’s easier with screw in chokes, simply put the open choke in the top barrel. This way I get along quite happily with this Citori.

Wood on the Gran is pretty weak for a gran, in my view.

Ha! My Hunter Grade 2 finally came in. I’ll pick it up next week, pending my free time. It looks ok, not awesome wood, but I’ve seen worse. I hardly looked at the workmanship details, but hoping for decent workmanship.

I probably wont be able to take it to shoot skeet for a few weeks.

I waited just short of a year for it.

Way I understood it the Grans were supposed to have grade 5/6 wood. That gun in the picture doesn't t look any higher grade than what's on my White Lightening with 3/4 grade wood. For 3100 bucks you'd think they could do better.. I looked at one the other day that was no better than the pictured one...mb

I'm thinking of selling my NIB Citori Hunter Grade 2. It's a little on the heavy side. I may pick up a Stevens 555 in 16 gauge and use that instead.

Cabela's has the 16 gauge Citori Hunter in both grades in stock as of this posting.

I ordered a Grade 1, 28" to my local Cabela's.

Looking forward to trying something new. My main shotguns thus far has been a BPS 12, 26" and a Winchester 101 XTR Lightweight 20, 27"
