I bought my SX2 before Ohio's season opened up. I took it dove hunting and had a riot shooting those speedsters. It ejected light loads without a hitch. The only problem I have ever had with it was one day we were hunting a area with lots of sand on the breakwall. During the course of the hunt all kinds of sand and grit got into my gun and my buddies. He has the 3.5 version. I have the 3" version. We never did get a shot but when we went to empty our guns they were hard to cycle the shells out. We found that we had to take the butt pad off and get all of the sand and water that had accumulated in there out. I sprayed mine very liberally with carb and brake cleaner and then ran some very hot water in the butt stock. Flushed out lots of sand and grit. It now cycles flawlessly. On a different note. I sprayed Dupli-Color truck bed line on my barrel and reciever. It left a nice durable coating on the gun. Our guns take some abuse in the boat and on the rocks so I wanted something that would help protect the gun from the elements and rust. I highly reccomend this gun for purchase. If in fact you do buy it and then want to get rid of it you could sell it fast on the classifieds here. I imagine though you will fall in love with it. The only thing that I would of liked to have had on this gun from the factory would of been a magazine cut off switch. Other than that,its a real workhorse.
