You may notice a family resemblance, in the high-grade wood, shape and finish that resemble the classic look and feel of Grandpa’s shotgun – but let us get one thing straight, this isn’t your Grandpa’s shotgun… The Hatsan Escort Supreme Max is a gas operated, semi-automatic shotgun that allows you to shoot everything from a 2 ¾” to magnum 3 ½” shells with flexibility to handle light target loads to heavy loads providing tremendous flexibility for hunters and sport shooters alike. This well priced semi-automatic shot gun gives you a great blend of value and performance by providing a level of handling, shooting performance and mechanical dependability normally associated with guns costing much more.
It is the entire package that sets the Hatsan Escort apart from all the other autoloaders. With the all new SmartMAX Piston system specially designed for 3 ½” shells this shotgun is simply one the most reliable, fastest cycling, well balanced and smoothest shooting autoloader in Canada. The rugged construction of the Hatsan Escort has proven itself to be reliable in just about any weather and situation you are willing to endure.
The SmartMAX Piston system specially designed for 3 ½” shells automatically adjusts the exact gas pressure needed for a wide range of loads from 7/8 oz (24gr) shot loads to 66gr (2 3/8 oz) heavy load double magnum shells. When firing light loads almost all the gases are used to operate the action and only a small portion is exhausted. When firing heaviest magnum & double magnum loads most of the gases are exhausted and only a portion of the gases are used to operate the action. Escort’s patented Smart Valve Piston automatically adjusts this even if you mix different size and weight shot shells in the magazine. Furthermore, thanks to the Smart Valve Piston technology, most of the recoil is eliminated before it reaches your shoulder improving shooting conformance by reducing barrel lift and allowing for faster target reacquisition. The Smart Valve Piston system is standard on all Escort semi auto shotguns.
