The 1873 is often touted as “The gun that won the West”, and it holds a special fascination for those who love to shoot and collect historically significant firearms.
Case color hardening gives the appearance of traditional case hardening to give a beautiful and authentic look to the receiver, but plate, and fore-end cap. The color of the steel complements the amazing grain of the grade II/III walnut used in the stock and fore-end.
For the first time in almost 20 years, the Model 70 Super Grade will be produced in with a short action. The Super Grade magnifies the high quality traditional workmanship that goes into every Model 70, and turns a precision tool into a functional work of art.
Each super grade features Grade IV/V marble-grained walnut, finely checkered with a shadowline cheekpiece. The deep bluing on the barrel, receiver and bottom metal, has been highly polished to a beautiful and durable sheen.
New short action calibers added to the Fall 2014 catalog are 270 Winchester Short Magnum and 300 Winchester Short Magnum. For the 2014 SHOT Show, there will be a limited run of Super Grades chambered for 243 Winchester, 7mm-08 Remington and 308 Winchester.
For 2014, Winchester Repeating Arms is offering waterfowl shotguns in Realtree’s new Max-5 camo pattern.
Max-5 is an upgrade over the already established and wildly popular Max-4 pattern. Max-5 incorporates additional plant and terrain elements over Max-4. To quote Realtree founder Bill Jordan, “Never before has a pattern offered so many natural elements and such a wide array of natural tones, shadows and colors.”
Winchester is offering both the SX3 and the SXP in the Max-5 pattern.
As the name suggests, the Winchester SX3 Coyote is steered toward predator hunters, but a closer look at the platform reveals how incredibly diverse and adaptable it is.
The Winchester SX3 shotgun is without a doubt on the fastest shotguns in production worldwide. Ultra reliable and light on recoil, due to its Active Valve gas system, the SX3 has gained a large and loyal following.
Featuring a pistol grip, an Invector Plus Full choke tube (interchangeable) and TRUGLO front and rear rifle sights, the Coyote is designed to offer more precision than a standard bead sight. This is very useful for maximizing effective range when heavier loads. It might be called the “Coyote”, but this SX3 will work well for turkeys or even serve well in a 3-gun match. The 20” barrel keeps the overall length down to a manageable size for navigate competitive courses of fire as well as moving noiselessly through the brush.
The Coyote also comes with a total of three interchangeable recoil pads to adjust length of pull and three interchangeable comb pieces to adjust drop, allowing the user to create a custom fit and feel, even when using a scope or red dot/reflex sight.
Boasting a 3 ½” chamber for the 12 gauge model and a 3” chamber for the 20 gauge model, the SX3 coyote will shoot target loads as well as magnum turkey loads, and with the interchangeable Invector Plus choke tube system, the only limit to its utility is your imagination.
It’s only a few days until the 2014 SHOT Show arrives. Get ready, because it is going to be one of the best ever. Not only will all the new guns be on display, but the SHOT Show is when we introduce a selection of Winchester SHOT Show Specials. These are some of the most unique — and sometimes the rarest — of all Winchester guns.
The product team also uses the SHOT Show for new guns that did not make the catalog and aren’t on the regular website. We will be posting stories and videos about these all week long starting next Monday.
Check back with us on Monday to get the daily updates.
The 2013 SHOT Show is just about over. Thank you for joining with us for the past few days. We will leave the blog up for a while so you can check back in on the postings, photos or videos.

We asked one of the guys here at Winchester Repeating Arms to shoot some photos of his favorite guns in the booth. One photo of the SXP Extreme Marine Defender did not turn out. But here are the rest.
The 17 WSM in the 1885 Low Wall is a clear favorite here. The second picture is of the cartridge and the third is of the gun.
The video below gives you a virtual walk-though of the entire Winchester Repeating Arms SHOT Show booth. Just like you were here. Taken with a steadycam and a GoPro camera. You can go full screen and watch in HD if you want.
