Default Winchester Shotgun Recall

Quote:
Winchester Repeating Arms has discovered that a limited number of SXP (3 " 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 the model 1200 is the 2 3/4" in 12ga.....
The model 1300 is the 3" in 12ga...
Is the sxp the 3 1/2" in 12ga version of basically the same gun ??

For instance in the Remington 870 series the trigger guards and parts are the same up to the 3" chambered versions... The 3 1/2" chambered gun uses the same trigger guard and parts, except for the shell lifter.. The one part for that series different than the others...

The 12-1300 series are reported to be drop dead dependable, from the thing I read... That about it ??

What could they have screwed up on this one ???

It sounds like it's something in the sear engagement if the gun fires when you close the action.

I don't know anyone who owns one.

I never cared for Winchester shotguns after the Model 12 was discontinued

I saw a video of this also... The guy had a camo gun in this video...

Seems it involved a situation that included a trigger pull with the safety on ?? Then it would fire, like said as the action closes... Kind of like an old "release trigger" ??? At one time that was popular with trap shooters...

Kind of spooky....
Take care...
