SX3 has some design changes from SX2, stocks will not interchange, and the barrel will not fit inside the receiver, little notch on SX2 barrel interferes. SX2 and Silver you can interchange most parts, except the trigger group, receiver has different outer edge design. Sx2 and Silver barrels will interchange as well, and the buttock. 10tenner

The Browning Maxus is essentially the same gun as the SX3. I was in the same dilemma and I ended up buying the SX3 in Black field. Beautiful gun. Both guns share the same gas system. The one difference that i would like for the SX3 to have that the Maxus has is the quick disassembly with the lever under the forearm. Little thing to help duck killers. If all you want to do is lay out some ducks, Winchester SX3 in Black Shadow or Mossy Oak Camo would do better than the Maxus would.

I agree with copterdoc. I've never understood why or when you would need this feature. I've never wanted/needed it, and never used it on my other duck gun.
Just found out that only the 20 gage SX3 has the Speed Load feature......not the twelves. Odd.
I've used my 20 gage SX3 for about 1200 rounds and not only never used that feature, I never needed to use that feature, or even wanted to use that feature.
"Speed Load" and "Magazine Cutoff": useless "bells and whistles" in my opinion.
