    I have been looking on Gunbroker and noticed the Winchester Select Energy trap gun seems fairly inexpensive. Is there something to watch out for on this gun? Is it a shooter? I may be in the market for one for my son. Thanks for any info.

    Nice gun to start out with, very tight and seems to stay tight. I shot one for about 6 month,shot 10,000 round, brought my average to above 90 and then went to a SKB and then and now Perazzi. Its a good starter Gun if you are getting into the sport, like I did.

    Resale value has been a problem with these guns. If you buy one plan on keeping it or taking a beating when you trade or sell it.

    Good luck,

    It was my starter gun. Very good value. It is a little light (I have 30" barrels). I kept mine and use it as a loaner. I have about 10,000 rounds through it.

    A better option is a used BT99 if you will only want a trap gun to start with and will not shoot doubles or sporting clays. You will not lose anything on it when you upgrade.

    Great shooters! I'd own another if they weren't ported.

    Decent gun once a good recoil pad is on it and weight is added to balance the gun and help tame recoil. The wrist is a bit small for my taste, needs a raised rib, and I hate the porting. My SE is first and last gun with that feature. All it does is make things a lot louder.

    I really like mine. I’ve been shooting it for about 7 years now, probably got 15,000 rounds through it. I have had problems with the bottom barrel not firing though, especially with fiochhi primers.it seems to get worse in the cold weather but i don't shoot much when it's cold so its not a concern for me. The paint on the mid rib bead fell off so I have to keep it painted with white out or the glare will blind you. I need to get that replaced. I’m thinking about getting another one for a back up maybe with the 30 inch barrels as mine are 32 . I had a Clyde slide put on about 3 years ago - best money I’ve ever spent.
