Remington Versa Max

Winner of American Rifleman's 2011 Golden Bullseye Award for shotguns, the Remington Versa Max has a nearly unparalleled level of versatility.

The driving force behind the Versa Max, of course, is the VersaPort gas system, which features seven ports and two pistons designed to soften recoil and reduce maintenance by contracting the number of parts. The VersaPort system allows the Versa Max to reliably cycle 2 3/4-inch to 3 1/2-inchshells.

Featured here is the tactical version of the Versa Max, which features a picatinny rail, forward barrel-clamp side rails and an extended magazine.

Alongside the featured tactical configuration, the Versa Max is available in a standard black synthetic model, a Realtree AP HD Camo pattern and a Waterfowl pattern.

I got the Versa Max on Friday 11/30/12. I took it apart, cleaned it, and assembled it. (PROBLEM #1) When the barrel is installed, the back part of the fore-end moves up and down even with the magazine cap fully tightened down. I went duck hunting the next morning. (PROBLEM #2) During the hunt the bolt handle literally fell off into my hand. I was in waist high water and this piece could have easily been dropped into the water and lost. For those who have not taken one of these guns apart yet, the bolt handle comes off and installs with some force by pulling or pushing. There is a notch in the handle that locks the handle into the bolt assembly and keeps it installed. This piece was fully inserted when I started the hunt. To make sure that I did not lose bolt handle, I kept it in the boat and grabbed it from the boat when I needed to use it. (PROBLEM #3) Shortly into the hunt, this Brand New Remington Versa Max Jammed Every Single Round! At this point I only shot 1 single box of Remington Hyper Sonic 12Ga 3” #2 shot rounds through this brand new shotgun. The extractor sheared off and was completely flush with the bolt head. I am in the middle of my first hunt with this shotgun and the fore end is loose, the bolt handle is in the boat, and my Versa Max shotgun is now a single shot shotgun. I am furious with Remington and the Versa Max. That Monday morning 12/3/12, I called Remington and told them what had happened. All they said is “OK” and to send it back to the factory via UPS standard ground. The instructions Remington sent me to return the Versa Max said that “our returns process will take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete and a confirmation email will be sent once we have shipped your firearm.” I can’t wait 2-3 weeks! I talked with Remington because I already have a hunting trip planned before 2 weeks and that I need this shotgun to be sent overnight both ways because I already have money invested into this hunting trip. Remington told me

Just watched video presentation...looks like it handles great! Light weight appears! Should be a best seller! The venting processes for optimal performance!

Looks classically beautiful. Can I get it in hand rubbed wood? Any variety.

For what it's worth, I think it might be a little heavy if your going to carry it all day, might want to put a sling on it also !!
