Hatsan Arms extreme max Semi-Auto
A near new Escort hatsan Extreme Max.
This one take the lot.
very good condition.
The Hatsan Escort semi-auto is continually evolving. Hatsan was one of the first semi-auto shotguns to arrive in this country from Turkey. In essence, the Escort is a workmanlike gun that offers very good value as a knockabout or rough shooting gun.
This newest version, the Hatsan Escort XtremeMax, has changes to the stock and fore-end, though mechanically it is not much different from the standard Magnum model in its latest incarnation. Hatsan has been fine-tuning the gas piston and bolt system to be as flexible and trouble-free as possible and it features the SmartMax piston system, which allows cartridges from 24g up to 66g (2.375oz) in its 31⁄2in chamber. However, I would suggest that before using lighter loads, it may first need a bit of running in with some heavier loads to loosen things up a bit.
The Magnum version, called the Xtreme, takes up to 3in Magnum shells and can accommodate loads from 24gr to 57gr (2oz). This gun features the Smart Valve piston system
Jason’s verdict on the Hatsan Escort XtremeMax:
Escorts make great workhorse guns. It isn’t true to say there are no frills, because these guns have all the features you’d find on a more expensive gun. So if you want a good working gun that you don’t have to worry about if it gets the odd knock or scratch, then these guns may be for you.
Price: The Hatsan Escort XtremeMax RRP is £612, while you can pick an XtremeMax in the region of £680

Hatsan Escort XtremeMax Specifications:
Apart from chamber length, both the Hatsan Escort XtremeMax 31⁄2in and the Xtreme 3in share the same features:
The barrel lengths available are 24in, 26in, 28in and 30in and carry special steel shot proof. Bores are chrome lined for maximum corrosion resistance.
The 7mm top rib is ventilated and slightly raised. It is also matted to minimise glare and reflection. The foresight is hi-vis.
The action frame is made from aircraft-grade aluminium and has a speed-load system, so the bolt is closed by pushing the floor plate upwards. There is a magazine cut-off button so that the cartridges in the magazine tube may be isolated and the cartridge in the chamber unloaded leaving the bolt back. The safe button is just behind the trigger.
These test guns have synthetic stocks and fore-ends. Slightly raised grey rubber pads are inset into the pistol grip and fore-end, improving grip and feel. If you prefer the look and tradition of wood, then there is also a version for you.
The recoil pad has been re-designed so that is flat on the back of the butt end. It is possible to get spacers and pads of varying thicknesses to fit the gun for length if needed. There are also a series of shims that fit at the front of the stock and can be changed to adjust cast and bend of the stock.
Length of pull as standard is 365mm or approx. 14 3/8in. Drops at heel and comb are 63.5mm and 41mm respectively.
With a 28in barrel, the 3in version weighs in at 7lb and the 31⁄2in at 71⁄2lb.
