Winchester SXP tactical

I was in the Corvallis Bi-Mart at lunch and saw that they had a Winchester SXP 18" pump for $299. Very tempting since a HD shotgun is on my short list of things to get as a relatively new gun owner/shooter. After reading about it, I think I will wait and spend a little more and get a nice used Benelli Supernova or a Mossberg 500 series or Remington 870.
I picked up the maverick 88 at bimart last week for under 200$. Same thing for me, first HD shotgun. Seems to be mossberg 500 stripped down. It is what it is, but the price is right for something I’ll hopefully never use. Not a range toy.
The Winchester is a badge engineered import but they sure have slick actions and I have read a lot of good reviews on them, don’t let it being an import scare you as the Benelli is an import and both are built to better standards than modern 870s. The Maverick is a Mossy 500 made of parts sourced from Mexico but final assembly is in Texas, the main difference is the safety position and the slide tube, I have never heard bad about them from people who actually have them. As to made in America or not it’s a gray area now a days, some of the best shotguns are being built in Turkey now, the most American car you can buy is a Honda Odyssey followed by a lot of other “imports” while the bulk of American cars and trucks are built one country north or south.
