The Winchester® SXP® Defender Pump-Action Shotgun uses an rotary bolt and inertia-assisted action to provide you with super fast follow-up shots when practicing home defense tactics. 4 massive lugs on the bolt provide incredible strength with a solid lockup, and dual steel slide bars eliminate twisting and binding when cycling the action. A durable synthetic stock with textured pistol grip and a tactical ribbed forearm give your hands a non-slip grip in any environment, and the Defender's non-glare matte black finish on barrel and receiver won't give your position away at night. A brass front bead is quick to pick up in any light, and the receiver is drilled and tapped for rails and scope bases. All SXP pump shotguns come with an Inflex Technology™ recoil pad which helps direct and channel recoil impulse, moving the comb down and away from your cheek, while a hard heel insert on the pad makes mounting the shotgun snag free. The bore and chamber are hard chrome plated, and the 18" barrel has a fixed cylinder bore that works especially well with Foster-type rifled slugs or buckshot. A solid lug attaches the barrel to the magazine tube that holds 5 rounds (plus 1 in the chamber). A crossbolt safety button is located on the front of the trigger guard on the SXP Defender for easy access, even when wearing gloves. The Winchester SXP Pump-Action Shotgun is a rugged, reliable self-defense shotgun.
