The SX3 is the big innovation in Winchesters range since 2006. The size of its stock, its grip and its fore-end have been studied to give the SX3 finesse as well as exceptional handling. The SX3 is very light thanks to a tubular magazine made of an ultralight alloy and a barrel whose weight has been reduced by its new profile. The SX3's barrel is back bored it therefore enables you to maximize the cartridges performance . The new battleship grey ULTRA TOUGH COAT finish has the added bonus of lasting longer than traditional blueing. In fact it is the most resistant finish ever applied to a shotgun. Winchesters legendary manufacturing quality is of course part of the total package.
