Winchester SX4 Black Shadow Compact 12 Ga
The long and the short of it. The SX4 Compact is very long on features. You get all the new SX4 functional and egonomic advantages . . . all in a slightly more compact version that is ideal for shorter, smaller, lighter shooters. The inch and a quarter off the stock allows a more natural mounting of the pad to the shoulder. and bringing the hands (and balance) slightly rearward makes it easer to point and especially to hold it to shoulder until you get the shot off. Featuers do not end there. The TruGlo fiber optic sight is a huge aid for aquiring fast targets and ensuring you stay in perfect alignment, as it “keep your head down.” The recoil pad utilizing Inflex Technology takes the punch out of the recoil by pulling your head down, away from the comb when you shoot, and the special design sucks up recoil headed to your shoulder. All in all we think it is the ideal smaller person autoloading shotgun.
The next level of performance. This Super X4 follows on the heels of the most successful Winchester autoloader ever: the Super X3 Black Shadow. There would be no point to the new SX4 if it did not take function, handling and egonomics to the next level. And it does. This is a dedicated hunting machine with it’s all-black exterior that is definitely non-glare to prevent spooking game. Critical functional controls are larger and easier to operate — a real benefit in damp weather and cold conditions.
The feel is right. You will need to go to your dealer to prove this to yourself, but the grip area has been totally redesigned for improved comfort and pointability. It feels thinner and it feels right. The same goes for the forearm. Both have gripping panels positioned to help prevent slipping and the texture feels good against your hands especially when you are not wearing gloves.
