The Remington Versa Max, also styled as VERSA MAX, is a gas-operated semi-automatic shotgun introduced by Remington Arms in 2010. It is chambered to use 12 gauge shells of 2 34 inches (7.0 cm), 3 inches (7.6 cm), and 3 12 inches (8.9 cm) in length.[1] It was named the shotgun of the year for 2011 by American Rifleman.[2]

Design

The Versa Max features a patented gas-operated reloading system that "self-regulates gas pressure, based on the length of the shell".[3] The internal cup that holds a shell when it is fired has a series of holes that regulate gas flow; shorter shells expose more of the holes than longer shells.[3][1] Remington states that the Versa Max "reduces 12 gauge recoil to that of a 20 gauge."[4] The action of the Versa Max is a redesign of the Benelli M4.[5]

Offerings

The Versa Max Sportsman is a reduced-cost variant of the Versa Max. Differences include a bead sight rather than a fiber-optic sight, only one choke rather than five chokes, and reduced cosmetics.[1]

As of June 2020, Remington lists seven versions on their website:[3]

  • Versa Max: Synthetic (no camouflage), Realtree AP HD Camo, Waterfowl Pro, Mossy Oak Duck Blind
  • Versa Max Sportsman: Plain (no camouflage), Mossy Oak Duck Blind, Mossy Oak Turkey Camo

There are additionally two tactical offerings, the Tactical and Competition Tactical.[6]
