Remington V3 Auto

Any comments would help prior to a purchase. Good Bad or Ugly. Will be used for waterfowl. Is the camo gun worth the added cost? Getting older and could use a lighter gun.

Re: Remington V3 Auto

Before I would spend a grand on it, nothing at all wrong with it, perfect shotgun ..I'd look at the youth semi version in 20 ga mag, with today great shells it will handle just about anything for half the cost, much lighter and easier to carry and point...it will do anything that 12 ga will do with far less to carry about, best move I ever made..

Bump still under consideration. Will sell the benelli super 90 to obtain one given good reports.

First off the Remington doesn't cost a grand. Seen some on sale for less than $500 on line. As for reviews go over to Shotgun world and look under the Remington forum. A couple hundred pages of reviews. A few quirks in every new gun brought to market. If I didn't have an 1100 that still goes boom every time I pull the trigger I would buy one. It's seen 44 years in the duck blind.

not a thing wrong with the benneli I tried all the shim variations and could not get it to fit me . That gun is like brand new with just a couple boxes through it. I bought I for my wife she quit shooting and it passed to my son and he gave it back to me. Remies always fit me. V3 may be it.

If you're looking for lightweight and reliable, have a look at the Winchester Super X3 and Super X4 before you make up your mind on the Remington.

I bought a Remington V3 back in March. I have shot a variety of different steel and lead shot through it so far and I could not be happier. It is light, fits me well, and is balanced nicely. I looked through quite a few guns before buying the V3(Browning maxus was nice too). I bought it mostly for water fowl but will also take it for pheasant too. I bough mine from cabelas when they had one of their coupons that was vaild on firearms and I had a good number of cabelas points to put towards it as well. Right now there is a rebate for $150 off a few different remington shotguns. I bought the shadow grass camo version just because I thought it looks nicer than the plain black but that is just my personal opinion. With the variety of 3" mag loads today I really saw no need for a 3.5" mag semi or paying the price tag of some of the other semis out there.
