#28 Winchester SXP Hybrid 20 gauge

Item #28

Winchester SXP Hybrid Hunter 20 gauge (pump shotgun)

Winchester® built the SXP Hybrid Hunter Pump-Action Shotgun to be fast, accurate, reliable, and tough enough take on just about any hunt that requires a shotgun. Its chrome-plated chamber and bore feature a Permacote finish to resist the cold, wet, and wicked conditions hunters often face. The aluminum alloy receiver also features the same protective Permacote finish to resist corrosion. This Winchester pump-action shotgun features a highly durable composite stock. An Inflex Technology recoil pad eases gun kick. The TRUGLO® fiber-optic sight gathers light for quick target acquisitions in low-light conditions. Inertia assisted speed pump action maintains the inertial motion of the rotary bolt, slide and forearm to continue cycling the action; giving a head start to eject the fired shell. E-Coated mag tub protects from wear and corrosion. The Winchester SXP includes sling swivel studs and 3 Invector-Plus choke tubes (F, M, IC).
