Re: Remington VersaMax
My crow hunting buddy bought one last year. It was a total piece of junk.
Bolt handle fell out and lost first day, extractor broke second day. Remington sent new parts. Next time out the op rod that is attached to the rear of the bolt snapped in half.
It also dropped live rounds on the ground, and stove piped.
Remington took the gun back, and wound up giving him a brand new one.
In the interim while Remington had his in their shop, he bought a new A-400 like mine. Neither of the A-4'S have skipped a beat.
I do believe that he simply got a flawed gun the first time around, but he lost all confidence in the versa max.
The brand new one Remington gave him still sets in the box, never fired, and it is for sale.
On the upside, he did say the recoil was way smaller with the Remington as opposed to the Benelli SBE II's we used to shoot, and slightly less than the Berettas.
Your never to old to learn something stupid
