Remington made a big splash this year with new editions of the popular V3 autoloader that rely on the proven VersaPort
The heart of this gun is the exclusive Versaport
gas system, which is a patented self-regulating system where the length of the shell dictates how many gas ports are open.
Laparoscopic ports include a Kii Balloon Blunt Tip system, a Versaport
Plus Pyramidal Bladed Trocar, and 2 Kii Fios First Entry trocars.
system has eight gas ports in the chamber, and the length of the shell determines how many ports are open, sending the gas to the under-chamber dual pistons that whack the bolt to open it.
Using the ingenious VersaPort
gas system with the ports in the chamber, the action return springs now run along the sides of the receiver for fool-proof reliability in any conditions.
For optic trocar access to the bag, a 12 mm blunt disposable trocar (Versaport
, Covidien Medtronic) was used in the first 17 patients, and in all consecutive patients a 13 mm reusable blunt tipped metal trocar was used (Karl Storz, Germany).
The line features Remington's Versaport
gas system, which cycles lightweight loads--as well as heavier turkey loads--without a hitch.
Located below the chamber, is a compact VersaPort
gas block fitted with two pistons, which drive the bolt assembly to the rear upon firing.

The company also released the Versaport
bladeless optical 12 millimeter trocar, offering surgeons visualization during trocar placement to help clinicians minimize the risk of trocar injuries.
A 5/12mm Versaport
(covidien TM), ordinarily used for laparoscopic surgery, was inserted through the centre of the purse string suture into the sigmoid colon.
