Other than $400 in suggested retail price, and the ability to shoot 3.5 inch shells, and the camo coating, is there any difference between the 1187 Sportsman and the 1187 SPS Camo?
I'm looking for an 1187 for duck hunting. My preference would be for a camo gun with a 28 inch barrel that will handle 3 inch shells.
Based on the most recent online version of the catalog, that is no longer an option, and if I want a camo gun I can only get it in a 26" barrel, and only with a 3.5 inch chamber.
Am I missing something? Is this the early stages of phasing out the 1187 altogether? The Premier grade guns seem to be gone too.
