RemMod1100's review of Winchester Super X3 Field


“Almost new SX3 Black Shadow not cycling 1 1/8 1300 fts”

Written on: 18/08/2013 by RemMod1100 (1 review written)

I bought an SX3 last December for a late season SD pheasant trip. The gun performed flawlessly on that hunt shooting 3 3/4 dram 1 1/4 oz 5 shot. Took it home and cleaned it and into the safe. Recently grabbed it for sporting clays and it wouldn't cycle Wimchester factory 1300 fts 1 1/8 loads. Luckily I took my Rem 1100 along because I was skeptical about the new SX3 cycling target loads. I took the SX3 home and cleaned it, gave it a once over with CLP, and tried it again on my home thrower. Still had problems with the bolt not traveling far enough back to eject. Disappointed I can't practice on targets with a gun I was going to rely on for upland.
