View Full Version : Winchester SXP 12ga Black Shadow - What do you all think of it?

June 2, 2012, 07:02 PM
I'm considering buying the Winchester SXP Black Shadow for trap shooting, upland game hunting, and whatever else flies. This is the one I'm looking at: http://www.winchesterguns.com/products/catalog/detail.asp?family=021C&mid=512251

Can I get some feedback from those of you who own one? Pros and cons?

Thank you!!

They're pretty good guns. Latest incarnation of the 1300 which never got the respect it deserved.

one of the BEST pumps on the market. Very fast, short throw, positive action. Winchesters seem to be one of the best kept secrets in the shotgun market...

Thanks everybody! Planning on buying one in the very near future. Right now I've been using the Model 1200 for several years...absolutely love the gun! I just wanted something made by Winchester that's a bit newer and the SXP seems to be the best choice! Thanks so much again!!

I've always liked winchesters. I have several 1200 and 1300's with never a problem. I personally think they're held I higher quality control than express 870s.

Good luck with the sxp. I've looked at them several times but never fired

I believe it is made in Turkey. Not a problem for me but given the choice I would go with something Made in the USA. It is basically a 1300.
