I love my Browning Citori and my son's 525. . . but I will never buy another BPS. My brother and I both had BPS's within a year of each other, and they would NOT hold a finish. They'd rust within 2 days of a hunt. Heck, I've got guns 50 years old that wouldn't rust as the BPS's did. I even had mine re-blued after one year of use and it still had issues. Browning told me "well, all metal rusts". . . I'm glad I had my Citori before these, or I'd never have bought either. Just for what it's worth. . . And my Rem 870 youth is still holding up (finish and all) 9 years after my son started using it. . .
