The Super X3 Camo Field 31/2-inch 12-gauge semiautomatic shotgun from Winchester features the Quadra-Vent forward ducting system that emits excess gases forward from the forend away from the shooter. The gas-operated Active Valve action cycles a wide variety of loads and reduces recoil more effectively than recoil-operated systems. The synthetic stock is concealed by Mossy Oak New Break-up and has Dura-Touch Armor Coating for added grip, feel and protection. Contact Winchester at (800) 333-3288 or www.winchesterguns.com.

The HiViz Magni-Optic Sight from Browning makes the sight visible in the periphery of the shooting eye only.

The sight also compromises for cross-eye dominance. Contact Browning at (800) 333-3288 or www.browning.com.
