View Full Version : Remington SPR 310 Over/Under

I am considering buying this model of shot gun for Pheasant hunting. It looks like Remington bought a Russian manufacturer and imports them. They seem solid and nice enough for the price, anyone have any experience with them?
Pheasants ??? you mean the birds that used to be in MI. with the long tails...

Not sure about the Remington but I've spent a bunch of time out west and we all switched to Autoloaders specifically benelli's. Not the cheapest of the bunch but I've shot mine silly for a week straight and never had any problems, it's not too heavy to carry all day like my red label. The big thing is that it's easy on the shoulder and I don't worry about scratching it like I do my "pretty" guns. I ended up getting mine used from a great shop in Traverse City when I lived there. It's the only gun I've bought used but boy am I happy.
the gun in question used to be marketed as Spartin if memory serves. I haven't used one myself, but alos haven't heard anything bad either. Other than it's more of a blue collar field gun. If you don't do allot of pheasant hunting you may want to consider a 20 ga. A little lighter and a little more versitile as an upland gun. Pretty much all I use on trips out west and cleanly kill many birds. The problem with 12 ga is that many people have a false sense of increased range.

Definately support the 20 gauge idea, I shoot a 12 only because I haven't spent the $$$ on a 20 but I've hunted with a couple of women that can shoot rings around me in the field and they bag as many or more birds than me everytime with 20's.
