New Remington V3 Shotgun

Activities and Exhibits

Here's an all new shotgun from the folks at Remington. It incorporates many features of the Versa Max but with some interesting improvements.



"The new 12-gauge V3 handles both 2 ¾- and 3-inch shells using the compact SASG2 Gas System.

This gas system places the gas ports directly in front of the receiver; this not only provides a self-cleaning action, but it changes forend design to produce a central, between-the-hands balance point that Remington claims promotes more instinctive point-and-swing characteristics. It also allows the use of a more compact receiver.

Additional features include a rotating bolt head for superior round control and increased reliability, a reduced bolt retraction force, and a buttstock that does not feature a recoil spring (and thus allows more flexibility in buttstock design, including upcoming folding tactical stocks).

A light-contour ventilated rib barrel further optimizes swing characteristics. All models use Rem. Choke 2 interchangeable choke tubes, and feature a 14 ¼-inch length of pull.

The V3 will be available in the following configurations:

The V3 Field Sport 12/28 RC VT SYN-BLK ($895) features a black synthetic field stock, a 3-round magazine capacity, and a 28-inch barrel.

The V3 Field Sport 12/26 RC VT SYN-BLK ($895) is the same gun with a 26-inch barrel.

The V3 Field Sport 12/28 RC VT SYN-BLK ($995) offers the Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades finish on the receiver and stock.

The V3 Field Sport 12/26 RC VT SYN RT APG ($995) features a 26-inch barrel with a Realtree APG finish on the stock and receiver.

The V3 Field Sport RC VT ($995) is available with a satin-finish walnut stock in 26- and 28-inch barrels."

Billed as the platrorm to carry Remington into the future, the V3 will reportedly be offered in many other configurations and gauges.

I expect it will be well viewed and reviewed at the 2015 SHOT Show later this month.

Look for more information on the V3 as it becomes available.
