It seems the new version weighs 8 lbs 0 oz in 26" and the older one was 10 lbs 6 oz . That makes me even want this gun more,I don't mind carrying a heavy gun anyway,even when I am hiking all day,but that doesn't mean I wont take the 2 lbs 6 oz and enjoy carrying it even more.
I was emailed and told it is a mistake on their website,gun weighs 10 lbs 8 oz. So same as before,I have no issues with the weight.

Weight is reasonable for a fixed breach gun with a fair amount of recoil. After adding the 24" barrel the balance is so much better to me, that it feels lighter than it is. After hunting it a few days, i don't really think it feels heavy, unless i'm switching back and forth with my 12 gauges.

When I read your post the other day I was thinking "did they go to an alloy receiver to lose that much weight?".

Ward i have a bps that has the turkeys and geese engraved on it with a 24" barrel. Bought that gun in the 90s  was and still is one of my favorite guns to hunt with. Couldn't  even imagine that gun dipped as pretty as it is with the high gloss bluing on it. Killed many birds with it over the years and made way more memories than I could have ever thought imaginable. Muzzle blast with a 2.5oz handload is pretty impressive. If I was to choose a 10ga as a project gun a bps is what I would go with!

They really are beautiful guns with the wood and blue, and the engraving. I wish i had kept my first one! But i have made a lot of great memories with the one i have now. It is a keeper for sure, although not very pretty compared to my original!
