It's a complicated action. Floating chamber. It is only an opinion, but mine is that Winchester never made a good semi auto from the time they passed on the chance to buy John Browning's design, until the Super X One. And even though some love it, even the Super X One has known problems. Shotgun World is down but I found this, it's pretty informative.

My brother has a model 50 in 20 gauge. It has 3 barrels. He used to use it for quail hunting. It never had any issues, though he never shot it to any extreme amount.

I'm a Winchester guy and with the exception of the original 1911 I'm not a fan of any of their semi autos...they have had a lot of problems with them

With the Super X 3 they may have finally gotten there. Of course, it's really FN making them now, so maybe that's why. I'm afraid if the right group doesn't buy out Remington from Cerebus, we are going to be left with only FN, Beretta, and the Turks and Russians making shotguns. Sad legacy for the home of the Second Amendment.

It was so far ahead of it's time that no other manufacturer has ever caught up to the idea of that action design.

It was advertised as such, but it didn't come close to living up to it.

place one over the receiver of a m12 and its identical.
only reason they stopped making them was the 58 & 1100, the new idea 1400, and new factory sealed its fate.
the model 58 and 1100 killed it with its offerings in different gauges.
