The Remington Versa Max, also styled as VERSA MAX, is a gas-operated semi-automatic shotgun introduced by Remington Arms in 2010. It is chambered to use 12 gauge shells of 2+3⁄4 inches (7.0 cm), 3 inches (7.6 cm), and 3+1⁄2 inches (8.9 cm) in length. It was named the shotgun of the year for 2011 by American Rifleman.
The Versa Max features a patented gas-operated reloading system that "self-regulates gas pressure, based on the length of the shell". The internal cup that holds a shell when it is fired has a series of holes that regulate gas flow; shorter shells expose more of the holes than longer shells. Remington states that the Versa Max "reduces 12 gauge recoil to that of a 20 gauge." The action of the Versa Max is a redesign of the Benelli M4.
There are additionally two tactical offerings, the Tactical and Competition Tactical.
