    I did see a recall notice on a gun website for Win SXP shotguns so yes it must be.

    I saw that....certainly a little unnerving if it is true...o_O
    But, the 4 safety rules will always prevent pain!!! ;)

    Yup, the safety isn't on the gun, it's between your ears.

    Well I get the all the safety rules for firearms, but I would also expect the rifle to not fire whlie chambering a round with the safety on.

    That shotgun is just screwed up and regardless of safety rules being followed is just dangerous. I have had a lot of pumps and none Ever did that.
    Muzzle always in a safe direction yes. That shotgun needs the recall ...

    Agreed - he was nowhere near the trigger and had the safety on. Very, very scary if true.

    It looks like the recall was a response to Win seeing the video.

    Has to be something causing the firing pin to stick, as when he pulled the trigger, the hammer fell. :confused:

    On August 15, 2006, Olin Corporation, owner of the Winchester trademarks, announced that it had entered into a new license agreement with Browning[6] to make Winchester brand rifles and shotguns, though not at the closed Winchester plant in New Haven. The production of Model 1885 falling block action, Model 1892 and Model 1886 lever action rifles are produced under licensed agreement by Miroku Corp. of Japan and imported back to United States by Browning.[7]

    In 2008 Fabrique Nationale announced that it would produce Model 70 rifles at its plant in Columbia, SC. In 2013, assembly was moved to Portugal.

    In the summer of 2010 Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal (FN) resumed production of the Winchester model 1894 and the evolution of the Winchester 1300, now called the Winchester SXP.[8][9]:(:(:(

    Winchester hasn't been Winchester for a very long time. Winchester has only been a trade name.
