There are few things more pleasing than a beautiful shotgun. Winchester’s latest Super X4 model certainly seems to fit that description. Here’s their press release:

Upland bird hunting is steeped in heritage, and carrying a beautiful, top-performing shotgun into the field ranks among the most notable of traditions. With that in mind, Winchester Repeating Arms introduces the elegant Super X®4 Upland Field 12 gauge autoloading shotgun.

The new Super X4 Upland Field is designed to pair the performance advantages of a modern-day autoloader with the style and handling of the shotguns of legend. Autoloading operation duties are handled by the Active Valve Gas System that combines proven reliability, low felt recoil and record-setting cycling speed. A standout feature of the Upland Field is the striking matte nickel-plated receiver with upland game scene. The Grade II/III satin finished walnut pistol grip and forearm feel slim in the hands and the straight-line checkering pattern optimizes grip and control. An oversize bolt handle and bolt release button are both easy to manipulate even with cold fingers and when wearing gloves. The Super X4 Upland Field weighs in at approximately seven pounds, making it easier to carry all day long.

    Is there a tactical version? Asking for a friend.

    That’s mighty purty. Been thinking about an auto loading 12ga. Gonna have to check it out.

      I have an X3, which uses the same operating system, X4 has minor improvements on stock dimension and trigger guard. I have had no problem with my X3, and love it. Great gun for the money.

    For the more tactical and HD ones, check out FN: https://fnamerica.com/shotguns/tactical/

    These are the same basic design from the FN/ Browning/ Winchester family tree. Very good design and highly rated. Even the P-12 pump is quite nice.

    I’m not buying a pretty shotgun to bash and clobber against the woods while grouse hunting.

    I found a Walmart clearance mossberg 930 for 300 bucks; matte black, black synthetic stock, 28″ barrel. No frills at all. That gun i don’t cry about scratching in the deep brush, rather, feel that every mar its a war badge. I go where the birds are, not glued to trails pampering my 1700 dollar beretta over / under.

    I take my beretta silver pigeon into the same places you take your mossberg. No safe queens at my house but I do like to use the good stuff.

      I was using my Mod 21 Tourney Skeet today. 3 birds. I used to hunt IA pheasants with an original Super X-1 skeet gun. (Seems a bit heavy now.) Once I tried open choke on pheasants I never looked back.

      This appears to be different from the Turkish-made Tristar/Weatherby/Stoger/Mossberg autos, correct? I have one of those (Tristar) in 28 ga for pen raised birds, it is very reliable, handsome and easy to carry and point.

      1. avatar Rimfire says:

        Yes, the SuperX4 is built in a Browning facility, as both Winchester and Browning are part of FN

    Made by FN/Browning
