Is ok to store my SX3 with the bolt back and safety plug installed or should I close the action?
I can't get a definitive answer and hope the experts can help me.

Either way will work...just remember to take her out once in awhile to dust and lightly oil her and she will return the kindness with years of service...

I always leave my SX3 action in the closed position when stored to protect the action spring. Springs will always have a longer life when stored in a relaxed state vs compressed.
