Building on the award-winning platform of the Versa Max, Remington's Versa Max Sportsman is a workhorse shotgun designed for today's American sportsman who wants the ultimate in autoloading technology and performance but doesn’t require a full featured gun like the ground breaking original. They've kept all the great technology that earned the Versa Max a Golden Bullseye Award from American Rifleman and a "Best of the Best" nod from Field & Stream magazine while streamlining the design to appeal to more hunters in more fields. The revolutionary Versaport gas-operated system self-regulates gas pressure based on the length of shell, delivering exactly the right amount of pressure for smooth, reliable cycling. It also reduces felt recoil like no other autoloading shotgun before or since. The synthetic stock has overmolded grip panels for a secure hold in any conditions. The black oxide barrel has a stepped, tapered, and undercut vent rib and an ivory bead front sight. An enlarged trigger guard opening and a larger safety allow for easier use with gloved hands. The shotgun ships in a cardboard box with one ProBore choke tube.
