    I shot one and it felt alot like a XT with out the weight. I had the sporting model good gun. I sold it and wish I didn't. Good scores and the gun was cheap.

    Well made shotgun, good buy for the money. I had one but I sold it, shot both bbls 70% high........some guys like a high shooting gun, I don't.

    The Winchester is a great buy for an entry level trap gun or your only gun. Underrated by the trapshooting community.

    Guns Unlimited has them in Omaha Nebraska, as the Winchester Piegon Grade $1295.00 Monte Carlo and $1395.00 Monte Carol with adjustable comb. Much nicer wood than the select energy and comes with briley spectrum series chokes also.

    I thought the checkering on the Select Energy was cool.

    I don’t know where to start regarding how great the Select Energy Trap O/U is. I bought mine the initial year it was introduced and shot tens of thousands of rounds through it over the last few years. Originally the barrels were matte finished and since they have switched to a glossy finish. The oval checkering is unique and works well. The gun moves faster than an XT, isn’t as heavy, and has a lower profile receiver. It comes with factory ported top and bottom barrels and was back bored to 0.742” in both barrels. I shot many flats of Kemen EX32 (1 1/8oz 1350fps) for handicap and the gun did not hurt me. The adjustable comb is the way to go if you don’t have a neck because it has more drop at the comb versus the fixed monte carlo stock. The triggers aren’t bad for a gun in this price range. The Select Energy has inertial switching hammers that never failed to work. My only issue with this gun was the forearm metal screws would back out frequently that eventually led to the forearm bedding to break down and a crack developed. However, Winchester replaced the forearm and shipped the gun back to me under warranty. Hats off to Winchester/Browning/FN for standing behind this great trap shotgun. By the way I won many trophies along the way with my Select Energy.

    I just bought a slightly used select energy trap last weekend and shot it tonight for the first time. I love the way the gun feels, especially the way the "grip" fits my hand. I need an adjustable butt plate, but I like the gun so far. Although 75 shells doesn't probably say much. Dick

    NICE gun for the money , cool checkering and the gun don't fit bad for a stock factory piece of wood , I have the sporting clay model and shoot some decent scores with it , the only thing I wish for a sporting model is that I had a 28" or a 30" I have a 32" for sporting The shorter would be better.

    I want to give some input on this as well. I had a Winchester Energy Select with the adj stock, and i can say for the money it was a nice gun. I normally used it for singles, but the times i did shoot doubles it wasnt pretty. But that was only my fault. I had one problem, it beat the ever living crap outta me, but the gun never let me down, and it gave me some darn good scores. Id love to get another one, but cant find many online.

    I’ve had mine for about 5 years now and I really like it. I had a Clyde slide installed about 4 years ago. I have had problems with the bottom barrel not firing. Another guy at my club has one and he has the same problem. I’ve had it in to several gunsmiths but the problems persists. It seems to be linked to the primer/ hull combination so I stopped shooting Grey AA and Fiochi primers and the problems seems to have gone away.
