Winchester is testing the tactical waters with their line of SXP “Defender” pump shotguns. The foundation of these shotguns has already proven itself durable after thousands of rounds fired in competitive shotgun shooting.
The SXP has a fast rotating bolt system that locks up into a 3-inch chromed chamber. The 18-inch fixed cylinder choked barrel is also chrome lined and the stock and forearm are composite as metal parts are finished in a black matte chrome. The magazine tube is capable of holding five shells with one extra in the chamber and recoil is minimized with a fitted Inflex Technology recoil pad. The weight checks in at 6.5 pounds and is remarkably priced at just $319!
