Winchester SXP Shotgun Recall – Video

WHC---Guided-Bowfishing-300-x250

 

Over the last few days we’ve seen a couple of videos going around that show a brand new Winchester SXP firing unintentionally.  This has since “triggered” a recall that should be taken seriously.  Fortunately we haven’t heard of anyone being hurt.  Another reason why you are taught not to point your gun at anything you don’t want to shoot!

Here is the first video we saw regarding this issue: Click here

Here is the recall information from Winchester: Click here 

Winchester Repeating Arms has discovered that a limited number of SXP (3 1⁄2″ 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.
