Hello all,

How do the older Super X2 shotguns compare in todays world? Good guns that will be softp-shooting and good for general use (trap/skeet and hunting)?

They are very nice guns little on the heavy side, cousins of the Browning gold

Mine has been pretty flawless, they aren't super light (depending on the model) especially if they are a 3 1/2 12. I had a browning gold prior to the SX2 and they are pretty much identical inside but I have found the SX2 to be more reliable.

Daughter latched on to mine to shoot for both trap and field hunting. I prefer it over my SX3 but my Citori is my go to.

Make sure the recoil buffer is good and the spring in the stock is clean and they will run.

I've had two for several years now, a 3½" SX2 Universal camo for waterfowl hunting and a 3" SX2 Sporting for targets. I've shot them both quite a bit, especially the target gun, and they've been pretty much flawless. Failures to eject/feed have been few and far between, and no broken parts so far. They're a bit on the heavy side, but are soft shooting and easier to clean than most gas operated autoloaders. All in all, good guns.

Ditto all of the above. Best yet. I’ve seen plenty of them priced around $500

Way under rated I have one and use it a bunch. The trigger is too heavy at 6 pound though.

The OP hasn't been back to SGW since his first and only two posts of 2/14/21, and didn't bother to acknowledge our answers to his inquiry. Another hit and run poster. :roll:

The OP may have only raised the initial question and not commented further, but it’s still good to read everyone’s opinions on the SX2. I’m a big fan of them myself. They rarely come up for sale in my area. In my experience, they are the softest shooting of the SX series guns. Likely due to them being a little heavier. Keep them clean, and they won’t give much trouble.

I have one in black synthetic and miraculously the Dura Touch is still in good shape

Browning removed the deteriorated Dura Touch from mine, which I bought new in 2008, and redid the entire gun in a new camo pattern for free. It’s almost like a new gun. While the trigger pull is not what I’d want on a rifle, it’s just fine for a shotgun. Overall, a very good gun.
