    I've read a lot of reviews (well, as many as I could find) on the new Winchester SXP and was wondering if anybody out there has any experience with them? I'm in Portland and when I called around to different shops they didn't know what I was talking about... I would like to check one out but don't want to have to buy one to find out if I want one! Debating between an SXP or an 870 but would really like to check out or hear more about the SXP; why does it seem to be so elusive?

    Apparently not, that being said. I would go for the 870, known track record for reliability and plenty of parts (replacement and aftermarket) should you need them.

    if you're going pump then go with the 870.

    Couldn't find anybody local with an SXP so I went with an 870... Still interested in the SXP so if anybody does pick one up please let me know/do a review!

    I have shot sx3, which is semi auto version. I like the balance and feel of the gun (skinny grip is very comfortable and light weight).

    but I wouldn't buy pump over semi auto on this version.
