2017 -- Cha-Chunk: The Sound of Solid Defense from New Winchester Super X® Pump Shotguns

Winchester Repeating Arms has a long history of producing defensive shotguns all the way back to the First World War. In close situations, nothing beats a reliable pump action shotgun for defense. Besides that, the “cha-chunk” sound of a live round being loaded in to the chamber of a pump-action shotgun is a sound no criminal wants to hear.

The new SXP Shadow Defender (black matte finish) and SXP Shadow Marine Defender (matte hard chrome plating) pump shotguns from Winchester Repeating Arms feature synthetic pistol grip stocks with textured gripping surfaces. Each is supplied with two length of pull spacers to adjust the shotgun to fit the owner perfectly, and two interchangeable comb pieces that enable them to dial in eye to optic alignment. A ribbed tactical forearm gives a firm grip for optimum control.

Both Super X Pump models are offered in 12 gauge and 20 gauge with 3” chamber. Alloy receivers are drilled and tapped for bases and rings. The SXP Shadow Marine Defender model features matte hard chrome plating on the barrel, magazine tube and slide arms for added resistance to wear and the elements. The SXP Shadow Defender 12 gauge has a suggested retail price of $449.99 and the 20 gauge version for $469.99. The SXP Shadow Marine Defender 12 gauge has a suggested retail price of $499.99 and the 20 gauge version has a suggested retail price of $519.99. Barrel length for all models is 18”. A cylinder choke tube is supplied.
