“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… Read Full Review

I flew back to ND over Christmas and while there decided to hunt pheasants used my sons SX3. Temps -5 to 15 above, shot birds everyday had only one missfire and it wasn't the guns fault. I normaly shoot a SBE and it was very comparable. If I did not have a SBE I would consider buying a SX3. … Read Full Review

“SX3 Sporting 30"”

Written on: 28/07/2012 by FSDWarp10 (1 review written)

I purchased a SX3 sporting 12 ga. for sporting clays about a year and a half ago. After a complete cleaning I took it out and shot it and it would jam about every 25 shells. I took it home and found a small burr on the lever that guides the shell into the chamber from the magazine. After polishing the burr off it has run about 10, 500 rounds with no malfunctions. It gets completely cleaned every 200 or 400 rounds. The key to keeping these guns working reliably is to keep them clean. Take them… Read Full Review

“SX3 Sporting Clays Adjustable, 2 3/4 and 30' barrel”

Written on: 08/07/2012 by opfats (1 review written)

I've owned the newer sporting clays adjustable for 8 months. Other than some initial jamming in cold weather (ok - I'm in Florida - not that cold) it has run flawlessly. The jamming was within the first couple of cases of shells, since then I've run ~4500 rounds through (1300 competitive shots) with maybe 4 ftf. It is cleaned thoroughly after ever 400 rounds, wiped down after every 100. I like the balance, it is easy to shoot and cleaning is a breeze. The only thing I would have done… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2013

I think I have seen this complaint on other sites also. When you get as bored as I did one day you'll notice the ownwer's manual says it is not designed to cycle the lightest 1 oz and 7/8 oz loads, even though it does seem to work o.k. for some guys. Pretty crappy way to do business. Makes you wonder what else they are hiding... But I was so happy to find a shotgun that fit me I just bought one anyway.

I have read many reviews talking about the jamming but I have not had this problem. I recently purchased a walnut field and have put about 500 rounds through it. The gun is super easy to disassemble and clean. The recoil pad is amazing. The gun does shoot a little high but I got used to it quickly. Overall I think for the cost it is a good buy… Read Full Review

“SX3 Walnut 20/28”

Written on: 04/03/2012 by Gunny0311 (1 review written)

As of right now I have absolutely nothing but great things to say about this gun. I spent a lot of time handling,researching, and listening about the semi-auto's that are on the market and I will not say a bad word about any of them as there are a lot of great semi's out there. I finally decided Friday on the SX3. This was not the easiest decision, but in my opinion it was a good one thus far. Took it out this morning and ran about 200 rounds through it ( after a thorough cleaning of course). I… Read Full Review

Don't lube it. At all. The lube you're using freezes the gun, not the gun itself.

I bought this gun in Jan 2011, before I even used it it malfunctioned. Put the barrel on, pulled back the bolt and it wouldn't come all the way back. Field stripped it right there, put it back together and went hunting. While out that day the gun malfunctioned three times. Every time on the third round the trigger jammed. Sent it back to Winchester, they said they fixed it by putting in a new trigger. I took it out and had the same problem. Sent it back to Winchester and they sent me a whole… Read Full Review

Hi qwikshot.

All i can say is mate , that you must have been very unlucky.
I purchased my 3.5'' SX3 12g Composite about a year ago and i have not had a single issue to date. The gun feeds all carts that i have fed it with ease and the recoil is virtually non existent. I can't remember having a single jam to date. My SX3 came with a 5 year warranty , that also gives me peace of mind , should any problems occur in the near future.

If anybody is looking for a fast , practical , reliable , good value autoloader , you won't do any better than to buy the Sx3.

Good hunting folks.

Well maybe Winchester has fixed the problem. I did love the gun, it was the best feeling auto I have ever shot. If you take the gun apart and look behind the nylon bolt buffer and see a little silver shine you'll understand what I'm taking about. I guess eventually it would have stop chipping off, but something was wrong. Winchester was good to me, can't complain about that. Glad your gun works well for you.
If you open the gun and look inside as I said I'd be interested to know what you find.
good luck

Did you wipe off the camsoline it came in? Did you run a few boxes of hot loads through it first to break it in?

This is the last response I'm making about the SX3. I made the post two years ago. I'm not interested in getting into a debate, I posted my experience so others would be aware of the problem. I'm sure Winchester has fixed the problem by now. I know people do get testy when you say somethings about there guns and have a need to defend them. I don't know of anyone that puts cosmoline in guns anymore, but the gun was cleaned. I've never had to break in a gun in my life, a car engine, 20 years ago maybe. Sorry I don't have the pictures I took of the damage to the receiver and the trigger group anymore to post, but it's possible you could find them on the net if you look hard enough, I'm sure they're out there somewhere. Do you think Winchester would have given me a second gun and then refunded my money including the sales tax I paid if I did something wrong?

I've owned and shot a lot of guns in the past 54 yrs., have owned guns from $60.00 to $15,000.00, I think I have the right by now to make a judgement call.

After reading some more post I thought I'd write one more answer. Read how many people shot boxes of ammo through the gun before it stop jamming. Do you think the receiver had no more metal to give up? I do. Looks like more people had trouble with the SX3 than not.

Bought a Super X3 Composite 28" barrel 3 1/2" chamber a few weeks ago and love it! I have shot many 3 inch shells, and a handful of 2 3/4" shells. I have not had it jam on me yet and found that it patterns excellent with a Trulock precision hunter modified with either Kent 3" 1 1/4oz #2 and Winchester Xpert 3" 1 1/8oz #2 (38 pellets on average within a six inch circle from 30 yards).

This gun feals great and looks just as good but it jams all the time. I have tried light oil, break free oil, no oil and it still jams after you shoot a box of shells. i have changed shells and i have pollished the chamber of the barrel to see if it had a burr but it still jams. This is probably the best swinging, carrying, killing gun i have owned but i am tired of missing the second duck due to jams. The finish doesn't stay on the gun either.

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.

I was shopping for a new shotgun last fall and did my research. I was down to the SBE and the SX3. Once I picked up the SX3 there was no doubt which gun I was buying. The SX has not and does not get the respect it deserves. I have shot over 1,000 rounds in cold and sloppy weather and never missed a beat. This gun can run with any autoloader on the market and might just lead the pack. The only thing I don't like about it is the red Winchester insignia… Read Full Review

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.

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: 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

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

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

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

here my review I 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: 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

Written on: 17/06/2008 by aznsurfer317 (1 review written)

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

Couldn't ask for more. I just put around 200 rounds through it today shooting 2 and 3 at a time and not 1 malfunction. 200 rounds doesn't seem like much for one setting but think about it, if it takes you 200 rounds to get your limit, when hunting, then you might want to rethink your sports and hobbies. I look forward to getting into competition shooting with this shotgun… Read Full Review
