    It boils down to firing pin, firing pin spring, hammer, & hammer spring,
    If your using lube and shooting in freezing conditions that would cause it
    I'd tear it down clean it and assemble it dry and start from there

    Remington has found that a limited number of its Versa Max shotguns may have hammers
    out of specification. This condition may result in inconsistent firearm performance.
    Inconsistent firearm performance may result in property damage, serious personal injury
    or death.

    Probably worth the call, they may screw up a lot these days but their warranty service is real good. Remington replaced a barrel for me with no problems, choke recess wasn't straight so they sent me a new barrel.
