New Winchester X3

Love the looks, feel and handling, in the store, of them. Anyone have one or used one? If so what do you think? They are tempting.

Re: New Winchester X3

Love it! I have 2 a wood stocked 28in and a synthetic 26in. Recoil is mild, has a little weight to it and swings well. I really like the shim system with the synthetic the best. I was able to lengthen and cant the stock to fit me perfectly. The only change I would make and did was to change the white bead out to a fiber optic sight. Its a duck killing machine now. With that being said I have a benelli M2 as well. I like both guns as they both have their high points. It all boils down to what fits you as shooting a shotgun accurately is mostly fit.

If you have any questions hit me up. I will do my best to help your decision based on what I have put mine though.....boat paddle, path clearing, mud, ice, walking stick in muddy uneven terrain...and has yet to go bang.

Goose-- Just bought a SX 3. What was involved with changing that front bead? I'd like to go fiber optic as well.

Re: New Winchester X3

Unload gun....remove choke tube....squeeze bead with pliers to break plastic and expose flat head screw....use small pencil torch to apply heat to bottom of screw inside the end of he barrel......slowly unscrew flathead screw while applying heat.....the sight I bought came with screws....apply loctite to screw and replace sight.


If you need more info send me a pm and I will send you my phone number.

Thanks
Goose
