Remington® Versa Max® Sportsman Camo Shotgun
FANTASTIC Semi for waterfowl plus!
This is a Great Semi! The Sportsman model only comes with modified choke tube, so I added carlsons Pro Bore extended waterfowl tube set and a screw on HiViz PM2011 fiber optic sight. Now the gun is exactly as I'd have designed it! Cycles great with trap loads, 200 rounds no problem at the range. I've used 2.75, 3, and 3.5 inch steel thru it with not a single problem. In the blind I put a 3 inch BC close range in the chamber, and 3.5 inch 1.5 oz black clouds below. No noticeable difference in recoil. Comfortable, easy on the shoulder, accurate and sharp looking. Buy it!

Purchased the sportsman duck blind camo just a few days before opening waterfowl season. Was a little worried about using it on opening day knowing I wouldn't have time to do the recommended break in using target loads but decided it would be a good test to see how reliable this gun actually is. I was able to squeeze 15 target shells in the night before just to help me sleep a little better and get a feel for the gun but come Saturday morning it was game on.
Right out of the gate using black cloud 3 inch #2, dropped the first bird 10 minutes before sunrise on a passing shot over the decoys. Then from there it's been a combination of 3" BB, 3.5" BB, more target loads, #3 shot, in all different ways and combinations with no hiccups. If you can feed it then this thing will eat it. Feels nice, swings nice, and points nice.
It is a little on the heavy side compared to other autoloaders that I've shot but you'll understand why after you rattle off those 3.5" BB popping out of a layout blind.
