Winchester seems to be busy releasing their turkey shotguns in new patterns, and right in the heart of spring turkey season. First it was their SX3 Long Beard and now it’s their SX3 NWTF Cantilever Turkey shotgun. It’s certainly true, turkeys have far better vision than they do a sense of smell, so staying hidden is a key part of bagging a gobbler, whether you hunt from a blind, park yourself against a tree, or spot-and-stalk.
The SX3 NWTF Cantilever Turkey shotgun is a semi-auto featuring Winchester’s Active Valve system. As a gas autoloader the shotgun is billed as having a softer recoil and greater accuracy than many others. In addition it comes with a TruGlo fiber-optic front sight and adjustable rear sights, and the cantilever mount means you can put optics on it – if you wish – with ease. Considering it’s a model backed by the NWTF it really comes as no surprise it has a variety of features to help you get that tom you’ve always wanted.
This season the gun will now be available in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country, which is a fairly new pattern that seems to be gaining popularity rather quickly.
SX3 NWTF Cantilever Turkey features include:
- Synthetic stock with textured gripping surface gives your hands a sure, non-slip grip and the non-glare Mossy Oak® Break-Up Country® finish won’t spook wary turkeys
- .742 back-bored technology provides optimum shot patterns that are dense and even
- Invector-plus™ extra-full turkey choke tube produces a tight, tom-busting pattern
- 24″ barrel is easy to swing in tight brush
- Truglo® fiber-optic front sight with adjustable rear sightgathers light for fast, quick pointing
- Weaver™ style cantilever rail design makes it easy to attach an electronic sight or conventional scope
- Quadra-vent™ ports vent excess gases for cleaner operation
- Drop-out trigger group allows easy cleaning
- Ambidextrous crossbolt safety is easily reversible
- Cast/drop shims and length of pull spacers allow adjustments for perfect fit
- Inflex Technology recoil pad directs felt recoil down and away from your cheek to reduce flinch and fatigue
A 12 gauge, 3½” chambered model and a 20 gauge, 3″ chamber model are available. Retail price for both versions of the new SX3 NWTF Cantilever Turkey model is $1,199.99.
