Thanks for the info. Im just looking for an afforable gun. My son just started 4-H shooting sports and he wants me to shoot with him. Im shooting a benelli auto with 26" barrell. I found the select brand new in the box for 1000.00, I thought it sounded pretty good.
In the Select Energy models the trap model has the wide Broadway style rib. The sporting model is thinner. That was the only spec difference I noticed when I tried them. I shoot mine for trap only and it has been great. As opposed to dverna, I sold my Krieghoff and shoot only the Select now. Scores are up on all three events. Go figure. I can spend more on practice now. Buy it, you won't be dissappointed. If it is new you will notice it a little snug to open for the first 2000 or so. The trigger is very nice as is the grip. Shoot well.
The winchester select energy is a great gun for the money, I have a select energy trap and have put thousands of rounds through it without a problem. The only thing that I do not like about the gun is that it gets dirty very fast, and after about every thousand rounds I have to take the stock off and clean the insides. Other than that it is a great gun. jamie
