    Anyone else have a Winchester Super X-1? Although I'm a Remington 1100 fanatic, there's just something about the X-1 that I love. Years ago I traded a Ruger O/U that I couldn't shoot well for 2 Super X-1s, one field, and one really nice skeet model. The skeet model is my favorite for 12 ga skeet.
    They are big, heavy, and not fun to carry in the field all day hunting, but they were pretty much hand-made and great shooters. They are still fairly reasonable when you can find one, which is kind of surprising given how the Model 12s have gone up. I saw 3 Trap Models at my gun store this weekend, each for $575 and each with fancy wood and M/C stocks. Might have to break down and get one of them...
    Anyone else shoot one?

    Small world.

    I love to old original Super X!

    For the last 2 gun shows in ____ I've seen a retired worker from a Winchester-Olin powder plant. He tells me many years ago, Winchester would allow their employees to purchase one gun a year at a big employee discount.

    You got it - He has a NIB Super X skeet with what looks like a high grade stock. I drolled over it but was way way short of the $1,800 he was asking. Last show he still had it and had dropped the price to $1,500. I can't come close to afford even that price.

    Now coincidently, I'm going back to that same show this weekend. If I see him and he still has it - I'll get his contact info for you if you want.

    Let me know.

    I bought, along with a trade, a 1974 Super-X NIB for $500.00. That was about eight years ago. 30 inch barrel with a full choke and I used it for shooting trap.

    Took it pheasant hunting once in 9 degree weather and broke the recoil buffer and had to use it as a single shot the rest of the morning.

    IMHO very great gun and one that I'll never part with.

    That would be great, thanks. My skeet model has higher grade wood also--maybe it was standard on those. The trap models I've seen have had either regular or monte carlo stocks with better wood, but not as good as the skeet models.

    I bought a few O rings and carry them for spares, but never had one go bad during a shoot. In a pinch I believe Remington 1100 O rings will work also, which are much easier to find.

    Winchester never had a good auto loader before the Super X came out. Their model 12 pump gun was the standard all others were judged by. So Winchester tried to build the Super X to the same standards as the model 12. It never equaled the quality or workmanship of the model 12's but it was built from steel instead of alloy and plastic. Model 12's were mainly all milled guns but the Super X, while alot of the parts were milled, many parts were stamped steel. All in all a very high quality gun, far better than those with plastic or potmetal cast trigger housings and tin parts. I have had a few over the years and shot my first 25 straight in trap with one.

    It wasn't the o-rings but the actual buffer pad located behind the bolt in the rear of the action. It's kind of a hard rubber semi sphere that's a real S O B to replace. I truly believe that the cold affected the part and it became brittle.

    Winchester Super X 1

    Any chance of getting the name of the gun store that has three Winchester Super X-1's in stock. I love the gun and would love to find another with the Monte Carlo stock if it is at a good price.

    Can you give a few more details, such as barrel length, barrel choke, ventilated rib? Is it a matte finished stock with fancy wood, or a normal walnut stock? Monte Carlo stock? I may be interested depending on which configuration it is. Thanks.

    requested info

    the extra barrel is 29 1/2 inches from beginning of vent rib to end,vent ribbed barrel,full choke with 2 beads...(what I was always told was a skeet barrel). The shotgun is the high gloss stock. I am unsure of that barrel choke, but it is also a vent rib and 2 beads...I can send photos if you send a email address...mine is chigger73@yahoo.com
