The Winchester SX4 Tactical FDE 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun, recently announced by the Winchester International group, is part of the vast line of Winchester's limited edition guns for 2022, and essentially a tactical shooting and defensive version of the Winchester Super X4 shotgun like, known worldwide for being used by top shooter Raniero Testa to achieve numerous world records in clay shooting in the past years.
Built around the same aluminum alloy receiver as the other members of the Super X4 series, and featuring the same gas-operated working system and the same controls configuration, the Winchester SX4 Tactical FDE shotgun feeds through a four-rounds magazine tube, and can host an additional shell in chamber.
Overall capacity reaches five rounds of 12-gauge, 76mm/3" shotshells. Capacity can be reduced to three shells overall through the installation of a limiter, for those jurisdictions that have limits in place to the capacity of firearms used in hunting.

The barrel, the frame, and all outer metal surfaces are Cerakoted in flat dark earth (FDE) color.
The SX4 Tactical FDE comes issued from factory with a built-in, black MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail on top of the receiver, as well as with a Ghost Ring tactical rear sight and a high visibility fixed front post sight with protective wings. The sights are manufactured in Italy by LPA.
Both the stock and the handguard of the Winchester SX4 Tactical FDE shotgun are manufactured out of polymer, and come with aggressively checkered contact surfaces for a slip-proof grip in all conditions and with a set of removable sling swivel studs. Each shotgun also comes issued from factory with a 7mm recoil pad spacer, allowing shooters to adjust the length of pull according to their needs and preferences.
