Nothing would load from that link, so no idea what it is.
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...
But, the 4 safety rules will always prevent pain!!!
Yup, the safety isn't on the gun, it's between your ears.
Don't get em to counting now cause by the time they get to four they forget the other three.
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.
Winchester issued the following recall:
"Winchester Repeating Arms has discovered that a limited number of SXP (3½-inch chamber) shotguns (also called the Super X Pump) may, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge while closing the action. Failure to return any affected shotguns for inspection and/or repair may create a risk of harm, including serious personal injury or death.
"If you own one of the following firearms, please immediately contact our Winchester Consumer Administrative Center to find out if your firearm is affected and should be returned. Please be prepared to provide the serial number of your firearm."
Guns listed under the recall include are the Waterfowl Hunter (26- or 28-inch barrel), Black Shadow (26- or 28-inch barrel), Turkey Hunter (24-inch barrel) and Long Beard (24-inch barrel).
Do not load or fire any of these guns. For more information call 1-800-945-5372 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
That You Tube Video probably got the information out better than a recall notice.
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.
That's pretty bad quality control coming from Winchester
Don't believe it's really Winchester anymore.
what do you mean????????????????
I tried to buy some parts a while back and found they had been bought out.
I repeat, with request for a LITTLE more info, wha'chu' mean?
On August 15, 2006, Olin Corporation, owner of the Winchester trademarks, announced that it had entered into a new license agreement with Browning 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.
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.
Winchester hasn't been Winchester for a very long time. Winchester has only been a trade name.
Separate names with a comma.
