Look up "Browning Superposed salt wood". Some original owners got new shotguns due to rust from the salt used to cure the wood for the stocks. Used shotguns go to Art for restoration.

What about the Belgian guns? I have 3, and none have that problem.

AFAIK it was only the Japanese guns and itís not all of them. I think they just used some cheap steel for a period of time.

Yep, think Pinecone told me about that a couple years ago. My Citori problems aren't a result of salt wood being used on the gun. It also isn't a superposed.

I had a typo in my previous post; I meant to say:

So this begs the question; is shotgun ammo that corrosive? Most common shotguns (both new and old) are not chrome lined.

Itís the same smokeless powder as rifle and handgun (different burn rate of course), so no. Iíve never heard of any other shotgun thatís had the issue as bad as the Citoriís. Of course you should clean any gun after shooting. The chrome lined bores are more forgiving.

Actually Shotgun powders closely overlap handgun powders .

I used to make the blanket statement that " Every Shotgun powder also is useable in ( at least some ) Revolver applications ." . I have yet to find any exceptions .

I'm a Browning guy. But, I would never not consider a Beretta. The wood has always looks better on the Italian guns.
