Remington offers this sneak peek of their new VersaMax shotgun during a 250,000 round torture test.
I can’t see many details about the gun from the video clip, but they sure have a pile of spent shells there!
7/27/2010 Update: Remington is continuing to build our anticipation of their new shotgun. Below is a banner ad from their web site indicating the gun will handle “any load, anywhere, every time.” The styling looks much like an 1100 / 11-87 which is a good thing in my opinion.
Remington loaded another quick video clip today of the new VersaMax. This time giving a closer view of the gun firing three quick shots of 3 1/2″ loads.
Remington added two more video clips of their new shotgun today and confirmed the name of the new gun as Versa Max (apparently two words).
Here is a quick view of the gun’s case with the Versa Max logo:
And here is a butt to muzzle close-up clip of the gun. Looks sharp:
Remington released a new video on the Versa Max introducing a self-regulating gas system they are calling ‘Versaport’. The Versaport system self regulates the number of open gas ports in the chamber/barrel area based on the length of the shell. So you can load and shoot any combination of 2 3/4, 3 and 3 1/2 inch shotshells without needing to adjust the gas system.
The Shooters Log over at the Cheaper Than Dirt site has an in-depth sneak peek on the Versa Max with specs, models and MSRP’s.
One little tid-bit from their post: Remington engineers fired 250,000 rounds through the Versa Max in testing which would be an average of 425 every day for a year.
It has a hardened anodized aluminum receiver, a TriNyte coated barrel and gas system with nickel plated internal components providing corrosion resistance.
