Golden Bullseye Awards: Winchester Super X Pump Marine Defender

posted on April 27, 2014

Picking the Shotgun of the Year is often difficult, but 2013 produced an excellent, affordable option.

Normally, shotguns sporting Marine treatments demand a significant price increase over the basic model. The Winchester Super X Pump Marine Defender not only boasts enhanced corrosion resistance, it also blends comfort and shootability into a great-looking shotgun at a price most can afford, making it worthy of the Golden Bullseye.
