First Look: New Remington Guns & Ammunition for 2014
December 19, 2013
It appears 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for several Remington product lines.
Their new offerings include specialized extensions of their Versa Max and 870 shotgun platforms, as well as their 700- and 783-series of rifles. A handful of new R1 pistols also join their lineup of 1911s.
Remington's Ultimate Defense handgun ammunition will expand to include more calibers, and become split into two distinct performance categories — Full-Size Handgun and Compact Handgun. The Compact Handgun cartridges will be designed and loaded for optimal performance in popular concealed carry pistols.
Other new ammo includes Remington's Golden Saber Black Belt, which we expect will replace standard non-bonded Golden Saber ammo, once it reaches the consumer market in Q3 of 2014. Initial offerings for Black Belt include 124-grain 9mm Luger, 124-grain+P 9mm Luger, 165- and 180-grain .40 S&W, and 230-grain .45 ACP.
