The have expressed great respect for the Super X3 autoloader from Winchester Repeating Arms and they just put the new Super X4 under their microscope. They really liked this next step in the evolution of the ever-popular Super X series.

“The Winchester Super X3 Field model is one of the best looking and best performing autoloading shotguns in its class,” opined the RG online editor. “Its satin oil finish walnut stock and matte metal pieces give it a tasteful...no, make that elegant look. The suggestion that a synthetic stocked gun could be as aesthetically pleasing might be met with some skepticism, but I believe Winchester has done just that with the matte black on matte black Super X3 Shadow, and now (with) the Super X4 synthetic.”

Additionally, the safety is reversible…Overall, the gripping surfaces are well contoured and patterned to provide good control, wet or dry, hot or cold…(For) ease of maintenance, pushing out two trigger group pins permits easy removal and servicing of the trigger group.”
