“ Bought this gun one year ago. It is the SX3...”

Written on: 03/09/2010

Bought this gun one year ago. It is the SX3 waterfowl 3 1/2 in. I use it for everything minus deer hunting, I could just buy a barrel and go to town but I like my 870 for that. I have used it for waterfowl, turkey, and small game. Don't shoot 3 inchers, but shoot 2 3/4 and 3 1/2, have had no problems with anything. I reload my own sporting clay shells and have shot 7/8-1oz 8 shot with flawless action.
Love the fit of the SX3. Forearm is plenty long for any type of hand placement… Read Full Review

“Winchester SX3 Field ”

Written on: 12/08/2010

Winchester SX3 Field

I purchased this shotgun after nothing but problems from a Benelli SBE. I am amazed at the quality fit and finish from the SX3. Wood stock and forarm are beautiful for the base model of the line up. Barrel and action fit like a glove with no gaps or misalignments. Clean rib and beautiful white bead make moving targets look stationary. The action of the SX3 is like no other autoloader, smooth and very fast even with 2 3/4in light target loads. After running over five… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/06/2010

Best semi-auto I have owned. Functions perfectly with all loads from target to turkey. Was never able to shoot target loads with my Remington 1100.

Can't wait for the fall hunting season. However, I am glad I have a few more months to practice on the clays as I am having a difficult time adjusting to the raised rib.

Wish either Winchester or the aftermarket would make more accessories available for this fine firearm… Read Full Review

“I have had nothing but problems with my Winchester...”

Written on: 22/06/2010

I have had nothing but problems with my Winchester Super X3. From day one out the box it wouldn't cycle shells. Its completely random. I have seen $300 shotguns work better than my $1000 SX3. Nothing more frustrating having a bird get up in from of you and your gun failing to cycle a shell. I have sent it in once and they told me nothing was wrong with it. I am in the process of sending it back to them. DON'T BUY ONE… Read Full Review

Don't fell bad, you're not the only one to me suckered. Here's my review I sent to another writer on this site.
About the Winchester SX-3. It's not the great gun most people think.
I think this follow has hit the mark on this gun. I can't believe all the good reviews on this gun. I bought one, Winchester had it more times for repairs than I had it to shoot. They offered to buy it back from me, but I said send me a new one because I love the way the gun looks and feels and though it was just a fluke . Well I got the second one. It came sopping with oil all over the receiver, I took it apart, found shared of metal all over the inside of the receiver, cleaned it and examined it for damage. I found the back of the aluminum receiver being hit by the steel bolt, just like the first gun. Being left handed I changed the safety to suit a lefty. I took the gun to my trap range just to check it out. At the 27 shot the gun malfunctioned, just like the first gun, the trigger became jammed, the safety wouldn't move and I had to get off the line. I cycle the gun by hand several times and pushed on the safety until it moved and finally the gun was working again. When I got home I disassemble it to find a piece of metal in the shape of about a 3/4 of a circle and less than the thickness of a hair, also the scoring at the rear of the receiver was becoming worst.
Winchester originally offer to buy the gun back the first time, I'm calling them on Thursday because the person I have to speak to is on vacation. Two guns, same problems. There were other problems with the first gun, but I'm not going to get into it here, these are the serious ones. Making a gun with an apparent aluminum receiver with no buffer to protect it from a steel bolt is just plain stupid. Anyone who says this gun is great has either not shot it much or just knows little about guns. I'm keeping the photo's of the damage to the gun and will be spreading them across the Web if Winchester doesn't come across with the money. This gun is pretty, but it's not dependable, I put it in a class with some of the worst engineered guns I have even seen, Anyone reading this please take this warning and stay away from this gun. I bough this gun for goose hunting, It's hard to hunt with a gun and enjoy yourself when you don't know if the gun is going to shoot or not. If you're stupid enough, as I was, bring another gun along. Foul me once shame on you, foul me twice shame on me. I'm the foul and I guess I'm paying for it with all this grief. No more guns with aluminum parts. By the way, as the aluminum is eroding where do you think the metal is going, you guested it, down into the trigger mechanism. I forgot to mentioned this, close examination of the trigger showed gouges in the trigger where it contacts the safety.

If anyone is interested in seeing the photo's of this brand new gun with only 51 shots out of it you can email me your address and I'll be happy to send them to you. It would be my pleasure to save someone all this money and saving someone from making an awful mistake as I did.

Written on: 22/10/2009

I bought this gun a year ago. i first bought a 11-87. I was told that it would shot light loads. Wrong. I took it back to Cabela's and bought the SX3. Took it to the field and had a great time. It was cold and the finish of the camo stock was great. The gun just felt right in my hands. I slid down a creek bank and got the gun muddy. Took my stocking cap off and did a quick wipe off. Never missed a beat. My norm isn't to buy high dallor guns. My model 50 just shot 2 3/4. I wanted a gun… Read Full Review

“I purchased a 28" Super X3 with waterfowl camouflage...”

Written on: 21/07/2009

I purchased a 28" Super X3 with waterfowl camouflage finish. The gun is excellent but beware of the Duratouch finish. I place my gun in a padded case into and out of the field. After only 3 hunts the camouflage finish began to chip off where the barrell enters the receiver. I sent it back to the service center and they claimed it is normal wear and deterioration. They did not touch up the area or even offer a suggestion as to how to stop the "normal wear".

I have a Super X2 in black finish and… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/07/2009

The Winchester Super X3 Field has an excellent action and is a delight to use, to be honest I've only put six shots through mine to date but already I'm glad I made what I perceived to be a risky purchase. The only other semi-auto I've used and can compare it to is the Benelli Montefeltro Comfort which is also a very very nice gun. Despite the Winchester being cheaper and simpler I would still take it over the Benelli. Also, the balance and weight feels much more 'right' than any Beretta I've… Read Full Review

“The Winchester Super X3 Field is basically a Browning...”

Written on: 11/05/2009 by Logun1 (1 review written)

The Winchester Super X3 Field is basically a Browning made on the same production line as the Browing Gold, Phoenix & FNH SLP ( Self Loading Police) tactical shotgun.
This Weapon is therefore a European manufactured from FNH, Herstal Belgium.
The internals & in particular, the gas valve & breach block / extractor is the same as the other Browning's with exception to the Golds direct load to chamber facility.

Those who doubt the durability & quality should get themselves a IPSC shotgun safety… Read Full Review

“I sold my AL391 Urika Optima to purchase a Winchester...”

Written on: 09/03/2009 by talalkhan (1 review written)

I sold my AL391 Urika Optima to purchase a Winchester Super X3 Field. I feel sad for that!!! I purchased SX3 by deeply studying reviews on web but none was against the gun till I practically used the gun myself. First problem that I observed was its loose fore end as the gun keeps ticking in your hand "Wooden Stocks!" you swing the gun you mount the gun you hold the gun it just keeps tick tick tick tick tick. Later the biggest flaw that I observed was the gun not picking the cartridge at all!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/07/2008 by Gabastone (1 review written)

I bought this to replace my Winchester 1300 for field use. It has been wonderful for sporting clays, but I have not taken it out for waterfowl or upland hunting yet.

Patterns are perfect for lead - steel shot seems to need a more open choke than is included with the shotgun. Non toxic shot seems to group better with a more open choke - no idea why. There have been no feeding problems or misfires.

The action should hold up better in adverse conditions than the similar Browning… Read Full Review

I have both a Winchester SX3 and a Benelli Super Black Eagle 2 and I can say that the SX3 is going to get a lot of upland and wing shooting action. I've even been thinking about getting a 3.5" SX3 in Mossy Oak Duck Blind for my waterfowl applications.

You simply cannot go wrong with the SX3. If you have the money to buy a Benelli Super Black Eagle 2, check out the Winchester SX3 first. If the SX3 doesn't fit you, look into something else. However, I'm sure 99.9% that the SX3 will fit you… Read Full Review
