    I've been looking at one of these guns to use on my weekend adventures shooting sporting clays. From the pics I've seen they look like they are well built guns. Has anyone here had any experience with them?

    Thanks in advance

    I own the Winchester SX3 Sporting Clays adjustable, and had to send it back to the factory 3 times for shell feeding problems. After all those headaches were resolved the gun is a very nice shooter. Beware of the possibilties of mechanical problems with this gun. hopefully im the exception not the rule.

    gook luck jim

    Hey Jim,

    Was the service from Winchester good? Did they fix it for you in a timely manner?

    Yeah I guess you could say that. I did find it very frustrating having to send the gun in 3 times for the same problem, but eventually they got the problem fixed and now it shoots fine.

    I've run over 500 rounds through mine with nary a hiccup! Ain't cleaned it either since the initial "wipe down" when it was new. Only problem I have with it is the grip angle is too "horizontal" for me, making it difficult to get my finger on the trigger properly. Probably gonna sell it rather than having it re-stocked if anybody is interested.
