For smaller-framed shooters, women and youth, the new Super X3 Compact could change their entire outlook on hunting and sport shooting. The lightweight aluminum alloy receiver, ultra-light magazine tube and spring, and satin walnut stock with a shortened length of pull reduce this shotgun's weight by nearly 3/4 of a pound of weight. A premium Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad helps manage felt recoil. The lighter weight barrel further reduces weight with a narrow profile and a machined rib. Features Back-Bored Technology for the ideal combination of shot uniformity and velocity. The gunmetal gray Perma-Cote UT (Ultra Tough) finish is more durable and corrosion resistant than traditional blued finishes. For balance, superior fit and smooth follow-through there is nothing more suited for younger, lighter-framed shooters than the new Winchester Super X3 Compact.
