New versamax, Goodies on order!

Well I've been shooting 2 and 3-gun matches with my basic 870 with mag tube extension for a while now. I've been debating buying a semi auto shotgun. Well I found what I thought was a decent price, $640 OTD for 26" VM sportmans. Remington has $100 rebate going on so $540 I think was a fair price. I ordered a few parts from Nordic; new +6 mag extension, new follower, bigger bolt release button. Called remington and ordered a new 3 gun lifter, total in aftermarket toyz $230 So as of now I'm into the gun for $770. I have yet to shoot the gun, parts are in the mail. My deciding factor for the VM is that my friend said his will shoot the cheapest shells he can find with no issues. That's what I'm looking for when shooting gun competitions and skeet.


Any suggestions on what else I should be upgrading? After I install all the parts I'll run the gun for a while. I may shave/expand the loading port to make speed loading a little easier/faster. What do you guys think about the price seem fair?

Parts arrived. Still waiting on the carrier. Going to drill and tap the bolt release button.

Thanks for posting - I bought a Versa Max tactical 10/24/2014 and did not know about the $100 rebate.

I was happy with the $995 (+ $25 FFL fee) price - but $895 is even better.


I got jammed up with work & projects - the only free days I had it was pouring rain (range turns into a giant mud hole) so I have not shot it yet.

This week I am planning to go - even if I need to wear rubber boots and a raincoat.

You will be better off sending a carrier to CRums to weld up. Probably should have got a VersaTube to eliminate the clamp, improve function and accuracy.

Mark,

I called c-rums about buying one, he said he was all out. He never even mentioned about sending him mine to have it welded up, figured he was not interested. Benny hill had one for $90 plus exchange. Remington's was $50 plus shipping. I like your mag tube extensions but it's more then double the Nordic. Kinda on a budget build, only reason I purchased the gun right now is because I beleive it was miss marked $499 after rebate. If I don't like the factory welded/extended carrier I may try and weld up the stock one my self. Thanks for the info, if your looking to support novice competition shooters I'll be a test dummie!!! Just send me a PM! Happy thanksgiving!
