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
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

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 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

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 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

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 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
