    I've heard that the Winchester Select Energy & the Browning XT are basically the same gun, --the only differences are wood finish & receiver material---is this true are parts interchangeable---there is a PFS made for an XT, wondering would a PFS work on a Winchester Select Energy----Phil

    Not interchangeable.

    I have s Select Energy and shoot it well. The only negatives are that it is a bit light, the grip is to thick for me and it feels cheap compared to my K-80.

    Still, it shoots very well and I have not had any problems - but only 7-8000 rounds through it so far.

    Mine has nice wood for the price and it is a bargain if you are looking for an entry level gun.

    Not looking for an entry level gun, will be using the gun for doubles only---will dump the wood-will have Dennis DeVault make me a stock or get a gun that would work with a PFS--believe it or not Dennis recommended a SKB---he did a lot of successful shooting with an SKB----I also will need to make the gun double release---Phil

    I have a Winchester Select Sporting in the safe I just serviced for a customer. It looks a LOT like a Beretta as far as locking system, and ejection. The triggers look like a Beretta hybrid. I would say it IS a Beretta hybrid, which is not a bad thing!

    It is made by FN Belgium. Seems like a good gun. I shot this one on the Bunker field. It seemed to be very well suited for the Clay Target Sports. I don't see anything negative about it. It is not a Krieghoff, but is not priced like one, either. I like the Invector Plus Choke system.

    My opinion is, it is well worth the money.

    The Winchester Select Energy is a good shotgun and NO----they're not the same as a Browning. The action has a lot more in common with the Beretta than with the Browning.

    Have not shot a Select Energy, any truth to the readings that the forearm is flawed, i.e. that it has a tendency to crack (wood)?

    My forearm has never cracked, but there was a guy I know that used to shoot one that had his crack. I am very happy with mine however, 15,000+ rounds and still not one problem. I also think that it has more in common with a beretta.
