Hunters, military and law enforcement personnel, and arms enthusiasts in general are rarely at a loss for words when it comes to what they think of their equipment. Remington Arms customers are no different, opining freely in magazines, review sites, and message boards. Here's what they're saying about a sampling of array manufactured by America's oldest gun maker.

Versa Max (1998) – Edward Gramza IV, reviewing this firearm in HuntingLife.com praised this autoloading shotgun's "lack of" recoil, called the finish a "thing of beauty" and enthused about the speed at which the firearm cycled light loads. "I honestly feel that this is a shotgun that will function everywhere from the trap range to the duck blind. As for reliable, I am sold on it. After putting 100 rounds through the gun without it being cleaned I realized quickly that this shotgun might actually take everything I can throw at it," Gramza wrote.

Hypersonic Steel (2010) – The offering debuted in 2010 and emerged as the fastest commercially available shotgun shell casing. "i [sic] have been hunting waterfowl for 39 years now, so I know a little more about this than mostI will not hunt with any other shells. I highly recommend them !!!!" says reviewer Buck 2013 in a Remington comments section of gun retailer Cabelas.com.

Model 783 (2013) – One gun enthusiast who witnessed this bolt action rifle's rollout at the SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show was enthralled. "The Model 783 answers many of the complaints shooters had with the Model 770, and provides several features that rival or even surpass the Model 700. Priced within reason of most shooters, the Model 783 should be the winner that Remington was looking for five years ago. I know I've placed the Model 783 on a very short list for my next hunting rifle," raved Richard Johnson, editor of Guns Holsters and Gear.

Remington Express (2013) – This product marked the first time the company issued an air rifle since 1928, and revisiting the past proved fruitful.

R51 (2014) – This subcompact pistol was launched in 2014 to critical acclaim, according to the company, but had a rough patch in the form of performance issues highlighted in reviews. Acknowledging the company had announced plans to work out the production kinks, Bob Owens, the editor of Bearing Arms, stood by his original stance that the pistol "showed a lot of promise" and predicted the company had a "real winner on their hands." "It was accurate, easy to hide as a carry gun, and came in at a great price point," Owens noted.
