Caliber: 10 gauge
Shots: 2rds (+1 in the chamber)
Notes: AP1, Shotgun, Double-Action
The Mag-10 is a semi-auto shotgun in 10 gauge, introduced in 1977,
for use by police during roadblocks. While 10 gauge never regained the
popularity it had in the 19th century, the Mag-10 did see some success.
Ultimately, improvements in the 12ga. magnum were soon able to deliver
comparable performance in a more mainstream caliber. The Mag-10 was
dropped by Ithaca in 1986.
The Mag-10 found new life in 1989 as the Remington SP-10 Special
Purpose Magnum Shotgun. The Their literature claims that the 10ga.
offers lighter felt recoil and better patterns than 12ga. magnum.
The Mag-10/SP-10, like other shotguns, can be loaded with slugs. A 10 gauge, 3 1/2″ slug does 2d12 at all ranges.
