    It seems like the discussions are always about the 1100 and 391, I have both. But what about the Super X2 or X3 for sporting clays? I'm interested in any pros or cons for this gun. Again I already have an 1100 and my wife a 391 for trap so I don't need that argument.

    Oh by the way, I shot sproting clays for the first time last weekend and it was the most fun I've ever had shooting clays. I'm hooked.

    thanks in advance Brian.

    Certain guns become popular for various reasons, not all of which are valid.
    The Super X-2 is an excellent gun, based on the design of the Browning Gold auto, but actually more reliable without the speed loading feature of the Browning. I have seen the sporting clays model for sale for $700, less than half the price of a Beretta 391 Teknys Sporting clays.

    You can get the it painted red or in natural wood, with the dura-touch finish that gives a nice non-slip grip. I wouldn't hesitate a minute to get one,

    Bought a X2 sporting clay 2 years ago. Very nice oil finish stock adjustable with shims. Very nice gun for the price.

    I won a Super X2 about 5 years ago(or more) at a raffle. Hence my handle.

    It's a great shotgun.

    I had one for 5 years. I shot the heck out of it and could not kill it. It will still malfunction in freezing rain and below freezing temps. I would not hesitate at all to buy another one. Shane

    we have 3 X2's and we have shot sporting clays, and waterfowl and upland wih them. Great gun. i would highly recommend them, they are very duriable, and extremely hard to shoot out.

    I thought it was just me, but I have read more about the Browning Golds having more problems than the SX2. I think the red receiver models are pretty cool looking.

    I have a X2 that I use for duck hunting and it has proven to be much more reliable than the Browning Gold Fusion I sold to get it. The Fusion was a pretty gun but the X2 is a workhorse. Fusion used to be my single shot automatic shooting sporting clays when the temp got into single digits. My X2 handles all season duck hunting without a through cleaning. Basically the same gas piston but the X2 works so much better. I can't explain it, I just accept the fact based on my personal experience with the two. I would purchase another X2 in a heartbeat.

    Bust'em All!
