Autoloaders have been around for over 100 years. For most people, they’re faster and easier with follow-up shots. Surely an auto trumps any pump on the range or in the field, right? Well, that all depends on who you ask—and more importantly—the gun in question.

One of the latest offerings and the newest member of Winchester's SXP family is the SXP Field. Introduced in 2011, the Winchester SXP—or Super X Pump—is a redesigned and upgraded version of the old model 1300 “speed pump,” which was discontinued when the New Haven, Conn., plant was shut down in 2006.

There's a lot to like about the latest SXP, not the least of which is a very friendly price point. Get a closer look at the SXP Field with American Hunter's Jon Draper in the video below.
