Browning gold 10 gauge vs Remington sp-10

Postby Dan the goose slayer » Sat Oct 19, 2013 9:05 pm

Hello all I am wanting a 10 gauge. I have narrowed it down to these two models and just can't decide. I do know that the Remington is not being made anymore. Also please don't comment trying to get me to get the 12 gauge 3 1/2 I won't. Thanks

I used to own a SP-10. I shot thousands of rounds with it without any trouble. It was a GREAT shotgun. I ended up trading it in on a new Browning Gold 10. The Gold 10 fit me better and is lighter. I can get it to my shoulder faster. So far I have not had any trouble with the Gold........BUT the safety in front of the trigger guard took some time to get the hang of. I still do not understand why Browning would do this. Anyway (IMO) both the SP-10 and the Gold 10 are fine shotguns and WILL pattern heavy doses of large size steel shot with a lot LESS recoil better than the 12 gauge. Good luck on your search for a 10 gauge, I do not think you can go wrong with the SP-10 or the Gold 10.

My vote is for the gold LITE and this is why years ago I started with a ithica mag-10 as my 1st 10ga and loved it would eat ammo down to -20 if the shells didn't rip apart and the mag 10 rights where sold to Remington bring us the sp-10 any way and from then I whent to the 24in bps then 26in bps after that a 26in gold then the gold LITE and that out of every 10ga I have ever shot or owned the gold lite fits the best swings the best for me ps I had a sp-10 in my hands for 450 the other day and I didn't buy it was to much like swing a 2x4 after shooting a gold lite for years

I grew up shooting a Remington 870 12ga. When I decided to buy a 10 ga back about 15 years ago it was hard not to pick the Remington over the Browning. However, I was able to compare them side by side and the Gold10 seemed better balanced. A few years back I bought a used SP10 because I was curious to see if I was missing out on anything. The only thing I ended up missing was the target. I had a hell of a time swinging that heavy battle axe and hitting birds. I gave it fair shake for most of a season and then traded it in on another Gold10. As far as performance I think they will both do the job. My decision came down to best fit/feel.

Own a 26" Gold Light. Like the gun, don't shoot it a lot. I've shouldered a few Sp10s. They actually fit me real nicely. Obviously, there is a weight difference. From a pure functionality perspective, I doubt there is significant difference. I think there is a guy or 2 here who has the SP10 cleaning down to a science, so if you go that route, might want to post up and ask.

The 'upside' to a SP10, may be that there are still .720 Terrors for sale..... :thumbsup:

Mine has been completely fine, but I've only had it now 2 seasons. If you Google search, there are countless threads out there. Seriously, either gun is a very dependable setup. It is completely a matter of:

a. personal fit.
b. what kind of deal you can manage to get
c. do you want a .720 Terror (LOL).


If you don't reload, you might want to familiarize yourself with sportingammo.com

Get the Rem.

My dad bought a Browning Gold 10ga. about 15 years ago when 10 gauges were all the rage, and he regretted it almost immediately. It was too heavy and too expensive, and just too nice to take hunting. Plus, if you're standing in timber - as we sometimes did - it just wore on his shoulder.

Just to be clear the gold is 9.5 pounds with a 26in bbl and the sp-10 10 pounds 8oz with a 26in bbl and 10ga too expensive ha funny guy have you seen the price of most 12ga 3in steel loads :lol: ps you don't get a 10ga for a timber duck gun

Love my gold 10. I never said I have 2 much gun. Sometimes when I shot the 12 with number 4 I wished I had more though. My ten patterns excellent. And I love it with both 3 shot early and bb late. Shells from Rogers are 19.99 a case. And it barely kicks.
