SX3 20ga Longbeard

Post by hoobilly » February 4th, 2019, 11:05 pm

If you get the chance to buy a SX3 20ga Longbeard, jump on it. The Invector plus is absolutely crushing gobblers they pattern so well. Hers a duplex load of the 90/93 8x9’s at 40 yards with IndianCreek 562. This is a dirty barrel and starting to degrade the pattern.

I have two of the X3 long beards, no doubt an optic is required due to the poor design of the sights. I shot mine with an IC .555 the factory and a Truelock .585, IC was to tight for my likings and the other two produced 300 ish in the 10@40. I think the guns are a tad bit heavy for a 20.

if they weighted 6 to 6.5 lbs they would be ideal

Dead bird! Wish they made it with a 21” barrel. Heck I wish I could find a 21 incher for my SX2 12 gauge.

Look for someone who has a stuck tube in a barrel etc and cut that thing down. Send to Briley and have it threaded
