So... Give us the scoop Tujays. Did you get to put some rounds through it... Likes-Dislikes?...Would you trade your ol trusty original VM for it
...They kept your very first for R&D didn't they?
Finally...someone that pays attention in class
My original VM was made in November of 2010...I/WE (real hunters, really hunting) did all the R&D for the new offering. Feedback is a gift, Remington accepted the gift.
In late May/early June of 2013 i sent it (my original) back for its first and only checkup, along with a specific set of instructions as to how i wanted it to come back! It came back just like I wanted, but it had a totally new receiver, bolt, trigger group, and magazine....same barrel, stock and forend!
So, now i have this frankengun that I am absolutely in love with and until one of us dies; we shall share the muddy fields as one....and did so all fall and winter.
The "Waterfowl Pro" was born out of blood, sweat, tears, and hard use of the original VM design.
Now....what they did with the original parts of my gun i do not know.....i am hopeful that they buried them at sea with full honors; they earned it!
This gun is meant for pounding waterfowl of all types, day in and day out, under harsh conditions, high volume heavy hunting loads, and no mercy.
It will work pretty good for just about any shotgun situation in my opinion, but waterfowl was the reason it was designed and the reason it will be successful.
As far a s a new "Waterfowl Pro"....I can hardly wait to lay my hands on one!
I have done so much for so long with so little, I am now qualified to do anything with nothing!
