Here are some ways to choose the best Remington firearm for your needs:

What Is the Primary Purpose?
Hunting, target sport shooting, self defense, or home defense each have different needs. A 1911 R1 handgun will not be appropriate for most hunting applications. In the same way, it's challenging to use an R-15 rifle as an everyday, concealed carry weapon for self-defense.

“I believe any list of recommended guns for self defense would be incomplete without what Ken Hackathorn calls the world's finest close quarters combat handgun, the John Browning-designed 1911,” wrote Marty Hayes for the Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network.

Remington manufactures a variant of Colt's 1911 called the 1911 R1 for everyday carry and personal defense.

Fitting a Rifle or Shotgun to the Shooter
Remington's Model 700 bolt-action rifle is considered by many experts to be one of the greatest consumer rifles of all time. Since its introduction in 1962, it has outsold every other rifle model by far, despite controversy about its trigger mechanism in the last several years.

A large number of different size stocks, barrels, and other accessories are available to help a gunsmith fit the Model 700 series exactly to a particular shooter. Length of pull, stock size and cheek rest are different across different genders, and different size and shaped shooters.

“Proper fitting of the precision rifle is every bit as important to the long range guy as fitting the shotgun is to the sporting clays or field shooter,” wrote Shawn Carlock in Long Range Hunting. 

The Right Ammunition for the Right Job
The Remington Versa Max shotgun is known for being able to accept a wide range of shell sizes and loads. In “three-gun” competitions, sport shooters must be able to quickly change between rifle, shotgun, and pistol in a range of firing positions. The need to quickly reload ammunition and expect the gun to operate correctly is similar to the type of situation facing individuals defending their homes.

“The Versaport gas system regulates semi-auto cycling pressures based on the length of the shotgun shell,” according to Guns and Ammo Magazine. “This allows shooters to run 2 3/4- to 3-inch loads with reliability while maintaining consistent perceived recoil.”


Once a shooter has chosen the Remington model that best fits their needs and frame, there are countless after-market accessories to personalize the gun to their personality. As people become comfortable with a particular brand, many choose to come back and purchase additional weapons to fit other needs as well.
