I have a new XSP trap gun I have bought the gun seems to shot all over the sky nothing consistent. I am a 47/50 shooter not a newbee. This is not the youth model its the full size gun. I purchased this as a spare but I am not impressed with it at all. Anyone else have any input or own one?

Thanks everyone

I bought one for my wife. She didn't do real well with it but I have seen a couple of things I didn't like. First the trigger was rough. Did some work on the trigger which helped. The gun seemed to shoot low. I think the comb was not high enough to match the higher rib. Had Keith Heig put a 4-way adjustable on it and it seemed to cure that. The length of pull seemed a tad short also. Haven't lengthened it yet but, the daughter may find it about right for her when her arm heals from surgery. Other than those few things it seems to be a good gun for the money. My suggestion is to have someone fit it for you and try some pattern work.

My friend has one and likes it.His shoots almost a full pattern high,we shot it from a rest.
He shoots it well, it seems to fit him well.He only has 5000 shells through it.

I have to agree it does shoot real high. The length of pull is short it needs at least a 1 inch spacer in it for me. I'm still working out this gun.

Check your hammer I have a black shadow also and the hammers on both are starting to mush over. Winchester said if it starts to miss fire or mushes real bad send it back in. The tech said it will only go so far and take a set

Check our hammer for distorting and mushing over. Give Winchester a call if it starts to miss fire or gets severe

Just had it out for a night of shooting to get it figured out. Found the gun actually hits low for a trap gun more like a hunting gun. The Monte Carlo stock could be about a 1/2 inch higher to match the rib. The length of pull is all wrong, it should be about an inch longer for a good 6 foot person. Everyone that handled it said the stock was all wrong. I got to the point where I could shoot it well but not excellent. I think it is a good pheasant hunter but not a good trap gun. This gun has a lot of good features but needs to be better accommodating to the average shooter. I think it is more of a beginner early teen youth gun. I'm probably going to get a BPS Trap for a spare.

Looks like you discovered what I did and related in my earlier Post. The comb is too low for the rib. It needs to be built up of have an adjustable comb added.

Just got one. I agree with what others have said here. It shoots all over the place. Sometimes I felt like it was shooting flat, but at other times it seemed to shoot high. I had to place the butt on my sternum to get it to hit anything--mounting it in the "pocket" on my right shoulder where it supposed to go it wouldn't hit anything hardly. I just thought I'd try it for the price and features, but Turkish made is still Turkish made. I'll probably mess with it for a while and then sell for something else made in America or Italy.

I picked one up for $230 from Cabela's and shooting it very well for a beginner. Only shot it in six squads and shot four 22s and two 20s which is great for me ( shot my first trap just a few months ago)

To new of a shooter to really know what to look for but so far I'm very happy.....certainly for the price.

why do you think it shoots all over the place, do you mean because of the way you shoot it, or off of a rest when you patterned it .
