Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical Review

Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical Review

The Remington Versa Max Competition Tactical shotgun was first introduced in 2010. Remington had been determined to design a shotgun with a state-of-the-art autoloading action system. What they ended up producing was a tactical shotgun with the best performance and reliability that you’ve ever seen. The reason it is called a “competition tactical” shotgun is because it is suitable for both personal defense purposes and competition purposes. This gives you the convenience of being able to take the shotgun that you use for home defense and bring it to a sporting competition or shooting range for recreational purposes.

Mesa Tactical Magazine/Barrel Clamp for Tactical Shotguns Review

Mesa Tactical Barrel/Magazine Clamp

The Mesa Tactical Magazine/Barrel Clamp for tactical shotguns is a two-piece clamp made of 6061-T6 aluminum which is lightweight and sturdy. The Mil-spec Type 3 hardcoat is anodized to withstand hard use.

So, what is the purpose of the barrel/magazine clamp? It holds the magazine extension more securely to protect it from damage in case of bumps. Hits are very common when you actually use your shotgun for hunting, training or home defense. Just remember that if you hit something with your magazine extension and it brakes, then the spring, follower and all the ammo will just fall out of the magazine tube. If the magazine tube nut stays in place, then you will be able to put your shotgun loading rounds into a chamber. But if the magazine extension and magazine tube are broken, the barrel will not stay in place while making the shotgun useless.

Best Remington 700 Stocks

Bell and Carlson Varmint/Tactical Rifle Stock for Remington 700

Once World War II had finally ended, an engineer of Remington Arms named Merle Walker started to create a cheaper alternative to the popular Remington 30. His creation would become the Remington 721. This particular rifle model featured a cylindrical receiver that was constructed with a piece of cylindrical bar stock. A lathe could be used to turn the stock too, instead of using various milling operations to machine it. This method would ultimately lower the production costs of the weapon.

Also, the 721 contained a lot of smaller metal components that were stamped, like the bottom metal. However, the finishing of the stocks was not as impressive as it was with the older Remington models. Walker continued to develop upon the 721 bolt-action rifle a lot further, resulting in the Remington 722 and 725 models. In 1962, the Remington 700 would be born.

Walker wanted the rifles to be more accurate and the lock time to be faster. When the Remington 700 was finished, it was mass produced just like the Remington 721 was before. There were originally two versions of the Remington 700 produced by the company. There was the Remington BDL and Remington ADL, which had long-action rifles and short-action rifles available. This let users chamber cartridges that were different from each other.

By the year 1969, Remington Arms released numerous upgrades for the Model 700, such as a rear bolt shroud that was longer, better finishing for the stock, and a jeweled bolt. In 1973, Remington even produced versions of the Model 700 for left-handed shooters. This was their way of competing with another rifle for left-handed shooters, the Savage 110 model. Left-handed rifles had only been produced by Savage at the time, so it was big news when Remington started doing it too. More Model 700 versions were released shortly after, like the 700ti which had a titanium receiver, the CDL, and the 700SPS. The Model 700 had been mostly designed as a hunting rifle, but it still had the capability of being useful as a sniper rifle for police and military operations. In 1966, the U.S. Marine Corps ordered the M40 rifles for its troops. Twenty years later, the U.S. Army would begin using the M24 sniper rifle.
