The Spartan 310 is marketed and distributed by Remington Arms, in Madison, North Carolina. It is a variant of a classical Russian shotgun IZh-27 manufactured by Izhevsk Mechanical Plant for export under trademak "Baikal", in Izhevsk, Russia. The Spartan 310 is inexpensive compared to other double barreled shotguns. It is most often used for hunting birds, and for clay target games such as trap and skeet. Remington ceased importing the shotgun in 2009.
The Spartan 310 has a walnut stock and fore-end, automatic ejectors, and a ventilated barrel rib. It uses screw-in SPR choke tubes. By default, the bottom barrel fires first, but the shooter can select the top barrel to fire first by pushing the trigger blade forward when the gun is loaded and closed. Opening the action automatically engages the manual safety, which is located on the tang behind the top lever.
The SPR310 is the standard model. It has either a nickel plated or blued receiver. The barrels are 26 or 28 inches long.
The SPR310S is the sporting model. It has ported barrels that are 29½ inches in length.
