I've been looking for a used 1300 Defender since they were discontinued without luck, and I saw an SXP Defender at a show about a month ago, but I can't find much info about it. I prefer the balance of the 5 shot Mossberg 500 to that of the 7 shot model, and the new SXP has the shorter 5 shot mag so I'm guessing I would like the balance more than that of the original 1300 Defender, and it has the original 1300 speed pump design, as well as an Inflex Technology recoil pad. It's $300 for the SXP that already has a recoil reducing stock compared to about $420 for a Mossberg 500 with a Knoxx Spec-ops stock, so does anybody have any experience with the SXP? Also does anyone know if the 1300 Defender accessories will fit the new model? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
