Madison, NC Remington is proud to announce that the National Rifle Association (NRA) Publications selected the VERSA MAX as the 2011American Rifleman Shotgun of the Year and thus awarding it a coveted Golden Bullseye Award.
Now in their ninth year, the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the shooting sports. The winners are selected by a seven-member committee consisting of editors, graphic designers and veteran NRA Publications staff, representing more than a century of collective experience in the shooting and hunting industry.
The Golden Bullseye Award will be presented during a special breakfast at the 2011 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania held on Friday, April 29, 2011.
The New Remington VERSA MAX is the new standard for reliability in autoloading shotguns, the VERSA MAX shatters convention and all previous benchmarks for reliability with an action unlike any that have come before it. Proven in the field and in extreme tests of endurance with thousands of test rounds, it cycles all 12-gauge loads with ultimate consistency, softer recoil and less maintenance than youve ever experienced.
At the heart of VERSA MAX is the patented VersaPort gas piston system; an extremely-reliable, semi-automatic operating system consisting of seven gas ports and two gas pistons for enhanced load versatility, while softening recoil and reducing maintenance. With the design of the patented gas system, the VERSA MAX reduces recoil to that of a 20 gauge. The VersaPort gas system self-regulates gas pressure based on the length of the shell, for flawless cycling no matter the load. Additionally with its self-cleaning gas piston system, overall maintenance time and effort is greatly reduced. With fewer parts than conventional gas systems, not only is cleaning easier but there are fewer parts to maintain. From the lightest 2 -inch target loads to the heaviest 3 -inch magnums, the VERSA MAX cycles with ultimate consistency, softer recoil and less maintenance than ever experienced before.
Any load. Anywhere. Every time the new pinnacle of autoloader technology.
