We saw an early version of this shotgun at NASGW last year in Atlanta and here is a slightly newer variant of Winchester‘s SXP Defender. What’s most impressive about this pump action shotgun is the price: $319. That’s retail! Very good value and it might earn quite a bit of interest from the LE crowd. With that said, it is a 12 gauge with a 3-inch chamber and an 18-inch smoothbore barrel (both chromed for durability). It weighs just 6.5 lbs. and includes a tubular magazine that holds 5 shells for a total of 6 shells (with one in the chamber). This model comes with Winchester’s Inflex Technology recoil pad for comfortable shooting and quick follow-up shots. Great for home defense too! Since the military stopped procuring Model 1200s years ago, this is a welcome return for Winchester to the tactical market.
