Winchester Repeating Arms introduced a number of new pump shotguns in the Super X Pump, or SXP, line this year. One of the newest is the SXP Turkey. As one might guess from the name, this scattergun is designed with turkey hunting in mind.
The SXP Turkey is available in both 12 gauge and 20 gauge. For the 12 gauge, the shotgun has a 3.5″ chamber. The smaller 20 gauge gun has a 3″ chamber. Both guns have a 24″ barrel that is back bored. Winchester ships these guns with the Invector-Plus extra full turkey choke installed. Both the chamber and the barrel are chrome lined.
These shotguns use a cross bolt safety. The trigger is a drop out design. As with the company’s other SXP shotguns, the gun is made with a rotary style bolt with inertia assisted pumping.
On top, Winchester uses rifle style, fiber optic sights made by Truglo. Additionally, the top of the alloy receiver is drilled and tapped should you wish to install an optic of some nature.
The gun has a matte black finish that matches the matte black color of the synthetic stock. The stock has a traditional shape and is fitted with an Inflex Technology recoil pad to help absorb some of the kick. The MSRP on these guns is $439 regardless of chambering.
These guns are very similar to the previous SXP Turkey Hunter shotgun. However, the new guns do not have the Mossy Oak camo pattern and also have a significantly less expensive MSRP.
