I own a Salvinelli Monaco Sporter and bought the 525 Trap model, as a spare. I occasionally shoot Sporting with it, despite being choked 3/4 and full. The gun is nicely balanced, with excellent handling, good wood to metal fit and well finished internal parts. Trigger pulls are fine. if I have a minor criticism, it is the shape of the actual trigger. The edge of the trigger is slightly too sharp and could have done with being rounded off. That aside, it is a gun which is hard to fault. I… Read Full Review

Got my 525 lightweight second hand and it is a brilliant, good looking gun. Despite the weight of just 6 1/2 lbs i hardly feel the kick from even the heaviest of cartridges. I have shot berettas and never shot well with them but this fits like a glove. Forget the misconception that berettas are the kings of the lightweight shotguns. Wouldnt even swap this gun for a DT10. Definitely made me into a browning man… Read Full Review

Purchased the Browning 525 Sport a few months ago over the internet. Received it in excellent condition. Shooting skeet and trap with it. The muzzle jump is non-exsistent with the ported 28" barrels. Improved my score immediately as it fit me perfectly.Prior to purchasing it I had looked at other manufacturers but noticed on the field mostly Browning were being used. There are other higher priced gun out there but for the normal working family guy the price and reliability of the Browning can… Read Full Review

Just purchased it after a lot of reserch. Fits me like a glove. Will try it out next week and report back. Shot Berettas but did not like they way they feel. Started out wanting a cenergy until I shot a Citori. Got the 525 Sporting Clays model with 28" barrels. A beautiful gun!… Read Full Review

The best points of this Browning 525 shotgun is barrel weighting. For me, the balance is just about perfect and I am very average 5' 10", 200lb. The triggers are better than my old A-5 by light years. It is crisp and the inertia triggers have never failed to fire. It weighs almost 9 lbs, so it is not a walk about game gun but I am looking forward to dove season this year. I personally prefer the Browning over the Berretta because of the higher profile receiver and slightly heavier weight… Read Full Review

Browning 525 sport is an excellent shotgun for clay shoots, very well balanced and a real quality feel compared to most other is the £1200 market. Well worth buying from a shop so you can select a nice stock (not all mark ones are the same) and feel the gun… Read Full Review

The Browning 525 is a very capable gun which makes even me look good when out shooting in the game, wild fowl or clay pigeon scene.
Very well weighted at the barrel which helps swing though the shot and I found helps with giving lead where needed.
This is a tough gun that will last for as long as you need it to if looked after… Read Full Review

The overall package of the sporting model is very well done. easy to pick up point and shoot. Nice finish and tight fit should last a long time even with repeated use at the range. the only gripe I have is the selection of walnut , could have defiinitly gone up a few grades at this price point… Read Full Review

I have owned Bereta's, and a gorgeous looking mk38 Trap gun. I shot badly with both despite tuition. I shoot double trap, sporting, and field and have to say all my scores have gone up dramatically using this wonderful gun. My gun is just the basic 525 with no fancy wood work, however it does all you would ever want! The best £1000 quid I have ever spent on a gun… Read Full Review

I like the selective trigger and the way the weapon handles. Nice oil finish on the stock of mine. It's a little pricey at the shop I bought from but the advantage over the internet shopping was being able to handle the weapon. Pick up the weapon before you buy. Not all 525s are the same nor are any weapons. I tried at least 20 different weapons the day I bought. It came down to two and after repeated eyes closed mounting tests, I chose the Browning Citori 525 Field with a slightly higher… Read Full Review

Switched from a Beretta 686E which was a good gun for me although not without the odd problem.
In comparison the B525 feels like a mans gun compared to the "feminine" Beretta.
My Skeet scoring is generally higher, I am somehow more aggressive and I never expect to miss with the B525 which for me is a bargain at the price.
I cant wait to get it out and go and kill more Clays with it… Read Full Review

A good all around gun for either game or clays, i,ve had my 525 for 4 months now and it has really improved my shooting in my opinion, not only that it looks great as well. Good that it is steel proofed because not toxics other than steel are very expensive. well worth the money… Read Full Review
