I made some modifications to my Remington Versa Max and now it's ready for goose season. :cool:馃挴
  • The larger charging handle will help getting the action open with ease.
  • The enlarged release button helps with getting the action closed quickly.
  • The Sightmark Mini Dot has been a great improvement for faster/easier target acquisition.
  • The Patternmaster Code Black Goose extended choke tube produces excellent patterns for long range.
  • Cut off the 2 prongs on the shell lift plate. This makes it much easier for quick reloads with or without gloves. 馃挴 I rounded off the sharp edges with a fine file.
The prongs were "fork like" and were constantly catching on my thumb or gloved thumb and was doing some damage to me or my gloves. :rolleyes: Obviously, this was slowing things down and creating problems.

I've ran this setup at a few sporting clay events with a Light Modified choke tube and it has been very impressive. (y):)

I upgraded my VersaMax Sportsman a couple of years ago myself. I had it cerakoted and dipped, added a Briley bolt handle, an oversized bolt release, and also purchased a pattern master Code Black goose (I use the factory modified for duck season). I kept the ivory bead on mine. It鈥檚 been my main waterfowl gun for 2 seasons and the best hunting gun I鈥檝e ever owned.

I鈥檒l continue Using my VersaMax Sportsman until my son grows up enough to take it from me. Luckily I came across an original VersaMax at my LGS earlier this year, so I have a replacement for it when he does take this one.

Get an aluminum magazine follower now as well, wolff 20% extra springs for mag and recoil tube. It will still cycle 1 oz loads all day long !!
Both of mine already do cycle 1oz loads all day long. Neither have ever failed to cycle for me. I do plan on getting the aluminum shell follower for both Though.
