This Winchester Super X-1 Trap shotgun with straight trap stock is nicely set up for trap shooting. Several modifications were done. Wright’s Gunsmith back bored the 30” barrel to .742, and opened the choke to improved modified. Mag-Na-Port International, Inc. lengthened and polished the forcing cones, and ported the barrel. (Oversizing bore diameters, and lengthened forcing cones are done to reduce recoil and deformation of shot pellets. Porting a barrel reduces perceived recoil by 15% to 20%, and muzzle lift by 60% to 80% in 12 gauge models.) A Kick-EEZ 1 1/8” black trap recoil pad, and a 10.4 oz. mercury tube recoil suppressor were installed in the stock. Last year the late Bob Baumgart performed a standard upgrade including a new recoil spring, new style bolt buffer, new tool steel follower fitted to the recoil tube, smoothed out the bolt assembly and installed a new firing pin return spring, installed a new hammer spring, installed a chrome plated gas system, and did a stage 3 trigger conversion set to a 4 pound pull weight. The receiver end of the barrel was drilled to install a wire shell catcher. A plastic snap-on receiver shell catcher will also be shipped with the gun. Receipts totaling over $1100 for the work described above will be forwarded with the firearm.

An after market owners’ manual will also be shipped.

This gun is in good shape a few minor dings associated with use.

Serial #M388XX
