If you’re a turkey hunter, the Winchester SX3 Long Beard Turkey shotgun is being made in a new camo pattern that should interest you. It’s now available in Mossy Oak Break Up Country, which is a new pattern from the camo giant set to hit the shelves in clothing form around June 2015.
Turkeys may not have a good sense of smell, but they sharp vision, so a quality camo finish on your turkey hunting shotgun is a wise choice. Mossy Oak Break Up Country depicts significantly larger branches and leaves than Break Up Infinity and has done well during field testing, so putting it on Winchester’s latest turkey gun does make sense.
For 2015 the Winchester Repeating Arms SX3 Long Beard Turkey model will be available in the new Mossy Oak® Break-Up Country® camo pattern. Available in 12 gauge 3 ½”, the new SX3 Long Beard Turkey autoloading shotgun features a pistol grip stock and comes with a Briley Invector-Plus Long Beard extra full extended choke tube.
The SX3 Long Beard features a synthetic stock with textured gripping surfaces. The back-bored barrel and Invector-Plus Choke Tube system delivers a consistent and reliable shot pattern. The 24″ barrel is easy to swing in tight brush.
The proven Active Valve gas system cycles a wide range of loads. Quadra-Vent Ports vent excess gasses for cleaner operation. The SX3 Long Beard also features an Inflex Technology recoil pad to help reduce felt recoil. For long-term reliability, the SX3 has a hard chrome-plated chamber and bore that are resistant to wear and corrosion.
The SX3 Long Beard comes with a TRUGLO® fiber-optic front sight with adjustable rear sight. To easily mount your favorite optic, the SX3 Long Beard comes with a Weaver style cantilever rail design. Three interchangeable comb inserts and three recoil pad options let you fine-tune the shotgun’s fit.
Suggested Retail: $1,269.99.
