We call this shotgun the "Extreme Turkey" because we figure big toms are extreme game, and those who hunt them go to extreme measures for an extreme hunting experience. You can learn all about the most ideal, top-of-the-line shotgun right here, and why it is the only choice for your extreme turkey plans.
Watch the new Winchester Super X3 commercial to understand the extreme speed and reliability you get.
The entire Super X3 NWTF Extreme Turkey is covered in Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Infinity® camo over weather-resistant composite stock. On top of the camo is a protective coating of Dura-Touch® Armor Coating to keep your hands from slipping, even with gloves on. The stock is further enhanced with fine-tuning options to match your shoulder length, neck length and arm length. The composite shims included with each turkey gun fit between the stock and receiver, to adjust stock drop and cast over a 1/4" range. If you are tall, short-armed, long-necked or have ever had trouble getting a shotgun to fit, the Extreme Turkey has just solved all of your concerns.
It is said that you never feel recoil when you pull the trigger on exciting game like a wild turkey, just in case, the Extreme Turkey comes with an Inflex Technology Recoil Pad, an ultra soft pad for absorbing the shock from heavy turkey loads. It it deflects the punch downward and pulls the stock slightly away from your face, reducing felt recoil and subsequent muzzle climb. The lower part of the pad has a hard heel insert that prevents the pad from hanging up on your clothing. You may not feel initial recoil when you shoot at game, but you won't feel it a few hours later when you're not shooting, either.
Quadra-Vent Forward Ducting System facilitates the venting of excess gases forward and away from you. It's a special advantage when shooting heavy 12 gauge, 3 1/2" magnum loads, when the Active Valve gas system regulates bolt speed by venting off additional gases through the piston. This means more comfort when shooting, less chance to flinch, making it easier to focus on the hunt.
Let's look at the SX® 3 Extreme Turkey's gas system and see why it is the best on the planet. Today, many autoloading shotguns utilize the gases created when a shotshell is fired to cycle the action, eject the spent shell and chamber a fresh shell. It is extremely important that this system be timed and adjusted perfectly. We call it the Active Valve System. It self-adjusts, allocating the exact gas pressure necessary to fire a wide range of loads, whether it be light, 1 1/8 oz. field loads to heavy 3 1/2" magnum loads. Most competitors' shotguns have trouble because their systems are not engineered to regulate different loads, or their ports and pistons are just not the right size. Chances are, other shotgun brands are not going to be as versatile as a Winchester autoloading shotgun, and may hang up when you need it the most.
The Super X® 3 Extreme Turkey also has a hard chrome chamber and bore. This prevents damage from the hammering of steel and tungsten shot to chamber surfaces. Dirt, powder fouling, gases and oils can actually seep into steel pores, causing a built-up of debris that canl shut an action down.
The renowned Invector-Plus Choke System controls what comes down the tube. You've got to have the right choke constriction to manage the pellets of the load. The Invector-Plus choke system has many constrictions to choose from. You'll want to have a very tight tube for turkeys. Be sure to pattern your new Super X® 3 Extreme Turkey before going out to hunt. Set up a 30-inch circle at 40 yards. Shoot your best load then measure the number of pellets in the circle for a percentage. Change chokes if you think the spread is too wide. Good luck!
