Sometimes you don't want to just "make do" with a tool that isn't quite right for the task at hand; that's exactly the case when hunting. Trying to turn your duck gun into a buck gun – such as, with a replacement barrel – may or may not yield exactly the best results. When the situation calls for slugs, you're better off with a dedicated slug gun.

The new Winchester SX4 Cantilever Buck semi-automatic shotgun promises to be the right tool for the job. Available in 12 gauge, with a 76mm / 3" (a.k.a. Magnum) chamber that's fully compatible with 70mm / 2.¾" shells as well, the SX4 Cantilever Buck shotgun offers an overall capacity of four rounds for a fast follow-up shot when required, and a 22" barrel optimized for an extreme accuracy with slugs.

A TRUGLO fiber-optic front sight with adjustable rear sight comes standard with the Winchester SX4 Cantilever Buck shotgun and gathers light for quick target acquisition. A Weaver-Style cantilever rail design makes mounting optics quick and easy, and retains zero when the barrel is removed for cleaning.

Offering shot-by-shot consistence and utter reliablity thanks to the self-adjusting Active Valve Gas System, the SX4 Cantilever Buck shotgun features a synthetic black matte stock with improved ergonomics, a rounder pistol grip and textured gripping surfaces. A set of spacers allow shooters to adjust the stock by length of pull, and an Inflex technology recoil pad makes the SX4 Cantilever Buck more comfortable to shoot.

Other features include a full matte black receiver, a drop-out trigger group and an ambidextrous crossbolt safety. MSRP for the United States is set at $959.99; no information is currently available concerning export availability and pricing.
