Waterfowl Shotgun Repair List

Well I decided that I should send my shotgun back to Winchester for servicing after last season. At the end of the season last year I was experiencing the bolt sticking closed, the magazine tube not feeding and a few other problems. It's a Winchester Super X2. Since I had it serviced last about 5 years ago I have put a MINIMUM of 700 High Density 3 1/2 inch Magnum loads through it per season, it has been under water at least 6 times and I actually did use it as an oar to paddle a john boat.

Here is a list of parts that were replaced!
New Butt Stock
New Forearm Grip
Action Spring Plunger
Stock Assembly Tube
Complete Bolt Assy.
Gas Piston Assy.

Keep in mind that I shot 179 birds last season, so I wonder how I would have done if this thing was at 100% !!!!!

good to hear that the guns all back together and operable. I have been wanting to send my winchester gauge in for the same type of service. if you dont mind me asking, how much did they wax you for servicing and replacing those parts?

$320.00, BUT 180 OF IT WAS FOR A NEW CAMMO BUTT STOCK AND FOREARM. IN MY OPINION IT'S A PRETTY FAIR PRICE TO REPAIR A $1,400 SHOTGUN. THE $320 ALSO INCLUDED THE SHIPPING AND INSURANCE BACK TO ME. SOME GUYS FEEL COMFORTABLE TAKING THEIR STUFF TO LOCAL SMITH'S BUT YOU CAN'T BEAT A FACTORY REPAIR!!!
FROM MY DOOR TO THEM AND BACK WILL BE LESS THAN THREE WEEKS.

JUST IN TIME FOR THE OPENING WEEKEND!

I think it would have been cheaper for winchester to send you a new gun.

LOL I have a mosberg 835 that ive had for 11 years that has had probly a minimum of 20,000 shells shot through it probly 20% 3.5" 30% 3" and 50% 2.75", lead steel, tungsend, buck shot, crappy reloads! the whole 9 yards. It has also been under water several times, used as a oar, shovel, crutch, etc. only been cleaned about 4-5 times the entire time Ive had it and I still have never had a problem with it.

Sure wish I had spent 6-7 times the money on a winchester.

Nice try but you can't even compare an ultra premium waterfowl autoloader to a mossburg PUMP!
That's like comparing a corvette to a pinto,
and if you ever fired a SuperX2 you would pitch your Mossburg into the garbage can, without even trying to sell it to the next poor fella!

I would have to agree.

I am considering a new SX3. The only autoloader I own is an A5, nice gun but not really on par with the new autos.
Looking for something faster than the Wingmaster I normaly use.
