It sure is!

N9luke - check that isn't the field model advertised at that price. Cheapest I found for field was £1160 and £1255 for sporter (Guntrader).

I however bought mine from my local gun shop which is literally within walking distance of my house, could have saved a fiver or so getting it RFD'd from elsewhere but to be honest would rather go local.

The place I'm lookin advertises 2 types, there's the "silver pigeon 1' at 1,170 and the 687 silver pigeon 1 at 1,195 so I'm guessing that's field and sporter??

It will be a good deal if it is, most places I spoke with are charging a hundred quid or thereabouts more for the sporter.

Is it worth getting the sporter instead of the field??

Nice gun, was recommended it by my local dealer, bit more than I want to pay when my licence comes through, but if it fits it's going to be a wise purchase, as reviews do say lot of gun for the money

Luke that has to depend on what you want it for. Clays then definitely yes. Mind you there is only about half a pound of difference in weight.

I have mounted both and reckon the sporter feels better. But that's just for me.

Well I do very little on the clays, it would be more for game and pigeons, I want it as an all rounder, I have found out that the local shop has both the sporter and the field so I will see which one suits me before I make a decision
Thanks for the advice mate

On the 30" Sporter the barrels are lighter - balance point is behind the pin.

I'm telling you it's a thing of beauty, makes me a little tingly just thinking about it. :yes:

That's it, Im taking the day off and going shooting.

Sorry thunder, i Meant to say in Michaels opnion they still need to lighten the barrels on the field gun. But i personally like the slightly heavier barrels on a field gun it allows you a smooth swing but still light enough for walking around with. Both beautiful guns and you wont go wrong!

Shooting UK has a review of this gun too. VERY favourable - as soon as I get medical issues sorted then SGC is the target and the SP1 (have shot the SP Universal) must be in the frame as a gun to consider.
