The 2014 SHOT Show opened to aisle-choking crowds and booth-bulging buyers. Even so, there were early indications that the hunting shotgun arena this year is packed with a combination of line extensions peppered with the introductions of a few actually new models.
The exact nature of specific line extensions seemed to mirror the company involved. For example, Remington is taking the Versa Max Waterfowl Pro to new levels with a Mossy Oak Blade finish and features like a tactical bolt handle (easier for cold, wet hands to use), oversize safety (works even when hands are gloved) and oversize bolt release button. Add wider, easier to access loading area on the bottom and the whole idea for Remington is that the gun will be easier and quicker for the user when in the field or blind. The Versa Max continues to set the pace for Remington when it comes to semi — auto hunting shotguns.
Mossberg has all kinds of new hunting shotguns, not the least of which is the addition of 20 gauge to the Model 500 FLEX offerings.
