Introducing the New Remington V3 Auto-Loading Shotgun

posted on January 16, 2015

As a shooter who is unfamiliar with 12-gauge shotguns, and the historic predecessors of the Remington V3, my first foray into the world of auto-loaders was a joyous one. Before shooting the new V3, I was nervous about felt recoil. Having shot plenty of 20-gauge shotguns, and having heard about the aches and pains following a day of shooting a 12-gauge, I figured the V3 was going to rock me right off my feet-and not in a good way.

I can happily say my experience was to the contrary. I believe I uttered the words, "Wow, that's it?" after shooting the V3 using 3-inch loads for the first time. Granted, I was wearing a light jacket, but the felt recoil was nonexistent. Once I got over the shock, and picked up on the timing of the fast-paced clays, I successfully shattered more clays than ever before. An added bonus was the ability to lock the loading port, keeping the skin on my thumb intact. The Remington V3 was easy to point and aim, light enough that I shot at least 30 rounds without complaining about aching arms (I'm weak, what can I say?) and an overall joy to shoot.

Check out this video from the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia where NRA Publications got to test the V3.
