Winchester has carefully designed and manufactured the SXP line to prove the dedicated hunter or the concerned citizen a rugged and simple to use shotgun. The Universal Hunter Model of the SXP is purpose built around giving the hunter every edge they could need no matter the season. Starting with the 26" barrel that comes with a nice .25" rib that places the fiber optic front bead in a comfortable position for rabid aquation. And combined with the Invector Plus Choke system you can adjust the pattern for the particular bird or small game that you're hunting. The internals of the gun are chrome plated to resist corrosion and help keep your shotgun cycling smoother for longer. To protect the outside of this firearm and add a little concealment for the hunter the Universal Hunter comes in the effective Mossy Oak DNA camouflage pattern. The receiver is made with aluminum which reduces the overall weight and makes it easier to carry on those longer hunts. So if you want a excellent shooting shotgun for upland bird to your everyday pheasant hunt.
