Based on the wording of the law which says capacity to hold more than 3 rounds, If you can readily ghostload your gun it has the capacity to hold 4 shells, which would be more than 3. If a game warden can easily get 4 shells in your gun then he can definitely ticket you. Not saying most will, but they can if they so choose.

Hunting buddy has an Xtrema 2. He can and does float a 4th shell. I have an A400 Xtreme. I can and do float a 4th shell.

Im assuming when you say this you mean can and do float a shell. If the firearm is routinely used by floating a shell then the magazine should be plugged to only allow a single shell while waterfowling.

I've got a couple of guns that float the fourth, I've never been ticketed in the 3 states and 16 years I've hunted with them. I've never had a game warden take my gun and try to float a fourth shell in it :huh:

It's a non issue for me and the other tens of thousands that have been sold and used to hunt waterfowl.



Now where it becomes an issue is if they have you under surveillance and they hear you and/or film you shooting 4 rounds.

Browning silver
Winchester sx2/sx3
Versa max
Extrema2
Super black eagle, early models
I'm sure lots of others.

BTW, floating a 4th on the SX3 won't unlock the charge handle. That only happens with the gold, because of the speed load function. SX3 employs the same bolt & charge handle the SX2 used. Because the carrier systems on Brownings and Winchesters are not designed to handle a shell on the carrier at the time the bolt cycle is initiated, doing so can cause damage to the carrier system.

Can be handy when jump-shooting C/O light geese. If you want to float a ghost round, I say enjoy. If you get caught during regular waterfowl season, you will, most likely, receive a citation. If you don't, you will, most likely, use more shells.

If it will hold three 2 3/4" shells in the magazine, it is not legal during the regular waterfowl season.

My SX3 uses a bolt exactly like the bolt in my Golds. This may be similar to the SX2, I don't know. I do know that both my Golds and my SX3 have speed load. My conclusion is that both the Gold and the SX3 can experience the loss of a bolt handle if a shell is riding on the carrier. My Gold has.

Basically, you need to put a longer plug in your gun so it will only hold two shells....of any length....in the magazine.
There is a length of plug that will allow your gun's magazine to hold two shells, and only two shells, of any length.

I didn't know the sx3 had the speed load feature...

I didn't either, until I tried it.

It's a field model, 20 gauge...but it has the steel-gray receiver and barrel of the Sporting 12 gauge model and the wood, especially the forearm, is far better than any field grade gun I've ever seen. Maybe it's "special"....... :wink:

Have you tried to "speed-load" your 12 ga?? My 12 ga waterfowl Gold speed-loads, and the Gold is the same gun as the SX3.

No. SX3 is the same as the Silver, on the inside. I've got a 20 gauge silver that has the speed load function as well. The sx3 has a different bolt, different operating sleeve, and slightly different carrier than the 12 ga gold. My 12 gauge SX3 didn't have the speed load function. That's why I said it wouldn't release the charge handle, as I assumed you were referring to the 12 gauge model.

I didn't think so. My sx2 could float one, so can my sx3. My versamax could too.

Everyone that is an advocate of floating the fourth during regular waterfowl season...simply post up your hunting license number & state...if you feel it's perfectly OK to float the fourth, you should have no problem in being man enough to tell everyone?
