Many of you know by now that the Winchester Super X® 3 Autoloading shotgun has proven to be the fastest cycling shotgun in the entire world. This shotgun has set records for speed in cycling, firing 12 shots in just 1.442 seconds.
In the hands of Scott Breeze, two Winchester Super X3 shotguns in 20 gauge cycled fast enough, dependably enough to take a world-record number of doves in Argentina. He fired for 14 hours straight, only taking a short break for water and food. His bird boys backed him up steadily with reloading both shotguns and keeping Scott hydrated. When it was too dark to shoot, 15,208 doves lay on the ground. Scott fired 16,575 shells, (more than 66 cases). His fastest take in birds per minute was close to 50, and the slowest, about 18 birds. You've got to see his incredible video. Watch the Dovenator in action in the first video, and below that is the new Winchester Super X3 / Super X Pump commercial.
Contributing to the Super X3's speed is the smooth way it handles. It comes up fast because the stock and forearm fit right and are well balanced. This is no clubby, heavy shotgun like those of the past. It is perfectly designed to shoulder fast, swing faster and follow-through like any shotgun should as a natural extension of your body movements. Inside, the Super X3s hard chrome chamber and bore stand up to constant punishment. Its electroless nickel-plated bolt and shell carrier do likewise.
This shotgun was made to last with very little maintenance. On the outside, the steel is coated with a gunmetal gray colored Perma-Cote UT, a tough, heavy-duty and extremely durable "Ultra Tough" finish. It shucks off scratches and corrosion to keep your gun looking great.
You have plenty of selection in stock material with the Winchester Super X3. Solid walnut is the choice for most traditionalists, while the composite stock can take a beating in blinds or crawling through scrub after quail. For younger and smaller-framed shooters, take a look at the Super X3 Compact Field. Its dimensions are shorter and lighter for youth and ladies. It has a soft recoil pad, a lighter barrel with a narrow profile and a lightweight aluminum alloy receiver. The Compact comes in 12 or 20 gauge models.
While you may not have an opportunity to visit Argentina and have doves come in to you by the thousands or even millions like Scott Breeze, you know your stuff when it comes to shotguns and shooting. Why not go with the brand that has proven itself for fourteen hours straight on the plains of Argentina, and over 125 years in the hands of knowledgeable shooters?
