SP-10

Why was it discontinued. I love 10 gauges, and I have a bps and a golden light. The sp seems like it was a good gun.
Good Luck in the field-Mike.

Probably not enough sales?

Usually all it boils down to normally. I have seen many over the years and they were jeckle and hyde, a few good ones and several poor ones, I know of one that now resides in the bottom of Chesapeake Bay! But also hunt with two guys who own them and they never miss a lick!

probably because the 10 gauge is fairly specialized any more, and a lot more expensive. kind of hard selling a $1500 12lb gun when everyone wants lighter and lighter shotguns that will pound you into the dirt with 3.5" shells. not to mention that a 12 gauge load with a similar payload and velocity to a 10 gauge load runs about 10 bucks a box less, at least locally. my costs will drop when i get around to buying a reloading setup.

the 12 is a lot more versatile, but i love shooting my 10 gauge. it patterns wonderfully, and is a real joy to shoot because the heavy weight soaks up the recoil.
