Winchester answered demand for lighter autoloading shotguns with its Super X4. At 6 lbs., 12 ozs., the newcomer shaves a quarter-pound and offers thinner pistol grip and fore-end dimensions than the predecessor SX3. The gun’s self-adjusting gas system cycles a wide range of loads and its Quadra-Vent porting diverts excess gases for clean operation. There are four model variations, all in 12 gauge and featuring 26" barrels. The base SX4 and Waterfowl Hunter, are chambered for 3½" shells and come with synthetic stocks, while the Field and Compact Field are dressed in walnut. Controls, such as the charging handle and bolt release, are large and easy to operate in damp weather and cold conditions. winchesterguns.com
