Default Remington SP-10 Discontinued

Got the word from a buddy and had to check it out, looked at the Remington Website and they do have all the SP-10's Discontinued, what a shame! I believe the SP-10 is the most efficient gun in the world when it comes to Geese and large Mallards!

Ya know, I love that gun. My goose/duck hunting buddy shoots one and man is it a killer. That being said my 12 gauge swings faster and puts down just as many birds! Not to mention my ammo costs a heck of a lot less!!! Sorry to see it go but with the advancements in 12 gauge loads recently it has become obsolete IMHO!

That's twice now since it was originally an Ithaca design IIRC.

Actually the SP-10 was completely re-engineered and improved by Remington, Not too many similarities between the old Ithaca and the Newly re-designed SP-10. When Remington got done with the new design they made a extremely reliable and soft shooting gun! They began manufacturing in 1989 with the first 5000 in production carrying a special serial# that began with LE which stood for Limited Edition. These original guns will certainly become collector items, and have increased in value now that they have stopped manufacturing after 22 years!

I love my SP-10. I threw in a kick's high flyer choke and it patterned great on the snow geese.

the sp 10 is only good if you were in the service and got used to carrying a 35lbs barrett. it is also a good anchor for small ships. maybe you could also donate one to a weight lifting facility. they are heavy shells are spendy and its a remington auto loading shotgun so don't get it wet or dirty cause it will not cycle. all of this is my experience and opinion. i don't want to offend or upset anyone. thank you

In fact the Remington SP-10 is Extremely Reliable and capable of digesting Hundreds of rounds between cleaning.

10ga will not shoot any further than a 12ga. you just have about 1/8 more shot depending which loads you buy.

Correct.

And more shot = greater density = higher pellet count hitting the bird = greater effective range.

or it could mean pellets hit eachother and spread apart making a loose pattern and crippling the bird. if you think 1/8 ounce of shot makes that much of a difference, shouldn't standing on ladder or a tree stand help too? not trying to upset you or be mean just curious

And the 10 Ga. is capable of holding more powder and larger numbers of large pellets which eguals better patterns, which is why the "BIG 10" IS SUPERIOR for Geese and Large ducks!

Ummmm, yes I do. If the treestand was 20 yards above the ground, I'll venture as far as saying it will increase the effective range by, oh say, 20 yards?

Yes, as far as I know browning still makes a 10 ga. autoloader. I have never shot one but I have heard good reviews.

I haven't heard much about it either. does anybody know a price to pay for a good used one? how about the price of a good used sp10? I've been interested in getting one and I am new to the internet and I find prices all over the board for these guns. what do you guys think?

Should be able to get a good used SP-10 or Browning Gold 10 for between $500-$700...

Cheers,

I would say a good used one is worth at least 600.00$ on up.

Man, it is funny to listen to people whine about the "tens" being so heavy. If the difference from a 7.5 lb. gun to 10 lb. gun is so drastic, then leave a couple decoys home. Whats the difference really, when you are packing 50-75 pounds of crap through the muck. I know that when in the hands of someone who can shoot, they are awesome. Bottom line, they are worth 10 more yards than a twelve, BUT, how many more birds come in on the edge of 12 range. Anyways, try boring out your factoy choke tube to .761 to make them really pattern "T" shot. Just my.

It is not a heavy gun, just large. The 10ga shell still out performs all 12ga loads. My opinion is, some hunters have no idea on the range of the birds they shoot at. Some think 25yds is 40yrds, others think 80yds is 50yds. Then there are the guys that think a pellet will kill birds at 120yds. Note: they will not
