Remington SP-10

Postby Theircommited10 » Thu Mar 15, 2012 12:44 pm

Will they ever bring it back ? I personally think its the best thing since sliced bread for killing ducks and geese with steel shot.

Ive heard rumors of maybe bringing it back on a "limited basis". Are there any other SP-10 fans out there that would like to see this happen also . Cheers.

Never actually shot one, but hunted with a kid who had one last season and he loves it. He says that the recoil is nothing due to the weight. Another buddy in the blind shot it and just has to have one now. I wouldn't mind it if they'd bring em back. I'd love to have one.

Ramblin,

I really enjoy it for that reason also. A guy can shoot max payloads at waterfowl and practically feel like hes shooting just over a dove load out of an inertia gun . Really helped me keep my flinching to a minimum keeping my check / head down resulting in more hits and doubles or even triples. The SP10 doesnt "kick" .. more like a push to me.

I had alot of 3.5" ammo to shoot up in my inertia 12ga gun this spring so I shot that first. I shot it for 3 days straight at snows and blues and by the end of the third day I hardly didnt even want to shoulder a gun much less shoot one my shoulder was beat to hell. I grabbed my SP10 that nite and for the next 20 days in a row shot that gun and didnt feel much of any pain on my shoulder even after a few 5ish box days.

It is the best gun made and I would love to see them come back. I would not trade mine for anything and have owned it since 1992. I doubt they reintroduce it in the near future as Remington has dumped a bunch of $$ into the Versamax and need to recoup that in the 12 gauge sales.

If you want one a friend of mine has a almost new condition one for sale in the classifieds. I would buy it myself but the wife wont let me. She thinks we need to make the house payment instead. :no:

Ive had an SP 10 for about 12 years , dont put a lot of shots through it in a season but in Britain most of my goose shooting is done on the coast so relatively few shots , but the gun has stood up to salt water and sand very well and with the 26inch barrel I find it easy to shoot with one handed , its a lot better than the side by side I used to have , some of my mates call it the baby cos they shoot with eight bores or even 4 bores , as John Wayne said "too much ggun " .

I own 2 SP-10s, I got one when they first came out with LE-89 special serial #'s on the first 5000 in 1989, and picked up another one about 10 years later that I got a great deal on I couldn't pass up. They are a dominant force in the Waterfowl blind, both mine are very reliable and an extremely well built gun. I would highly recommend them to any serious Waterfowl hunter. That would be nice if Remington brought them back, but I doubt I will ever be able to wear either of mine out, as I have put thousands of rounds through both of mine and they rarely malfunction. If I keep them clean, jamming is practically non-existant. I heard Remington discontnued them due to high manufacturing costs and lack of demand. You can still find good deals on them out there now, but I am sure the prices will continue to climb as they will become harder to find. I am very glad I bought mine. They are a great waterfowl gun!
Forget the past, the past is gone forever, right now is where it's happening.

NWB,

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your SP-10 experiences. I like where your head is at .. a backup is a great excuse for me to get another one :lol3: . My summer goal is to land an SP-10 with black synthetic furniture and 30" barrel. If I can get that Ill probably retire my nice wood stock-ed gun to the backup position.

Thanks for posting this. I had no idea hey stopped making the SP-10. Kind of sad because I'm a huge 10 gauge fan. First 10 I shot was my uncle's SP-10 and I loved it. I ended up buying a Browning BPS 10 stalker which comes out of the gun cabinet more than any other gun I own. So is there only one 10 gauge on the market now that isn't a single shot?

I too have a old SP-10 Ser# 736, I bought 2 more after that, all in 26" bbl's Have one spare 28"bbl too. Then I found a Mag 10 with a 28" bbl with factory screw in's dont take it out much. Remington is owned by a large holding company that does not care about us. Yes I wish they would stop wasting the steel on those Versa junks and return to building to SP-10.

The gold 10 is a far suprior gun. Recoil doesnt even register, easy to clean and functions flawless if maintained. Like all semi auto's. Oh and it is still in production so parts are available.

Japan is not China, some of the best quality things are produced in Japan.

Looking at an Ithaca Mag 10 to have as a back up to my BPS. Anyone have any opinions on them they want to share?

You must be one of those old-timers who equate "Made in Japan" with junk. Japanese goods got past that stigma decades ago with Nikon, Hitachi, Akai, Honda, and Toyota. Today, the world's finest products are made in Japan. It is 2012, isn't it?

Ten gauge? If 10ga. ammo wasn't so expensive and hard to find, I'd love to have an SP-10 or Gold 10 myself.

Dear owners of Remington SP-10. Please make photos of trigger assembly, breaching bolt and inside the receiver. Or maybe full disassembling.
Two years ago I bought broken SP-10 and try to repair it. Sometimes it shoots good, sometimes it is like one barrel break-down.
So I need photos more than I found in google.
Unfortunately it is not Rem 870 and I have no way to buy new spare parts.
Thanks a lot

:lol:
what do you do for an encore?
the sp10 was designed from the ithaca magten minus its faults. it operates with brute simplicity with few moving parts in all adverse weather conditions.,be it on a field or a saltmarsh firing mud encrusted shells they will not falter.they are not hull length fussy unlike that sack of s*it youve just mentioned ,nor do the cocking levers fly out whenever they feel like it or malfunction at a whim which is what the gold does for free.i can have my sp10 stripped to the bolt assembly ,cleaned and re built in 10easy minutes..
now ,take your fault ridden over engineered junk pile with you and close the door on your way out.
