Remington V3 on the way

Recommended Posts

I decided to pull the trigger on a Remington V3 28" black synthetic stock.  I've wanted a auto to shoot trap with and think this may be a good choice for an all around versatile shotgun.  I hope an 870 or 1100 stock will fit the V3, but Google didn't seem to be able to find much.

I'm hoping this Shell Catcher will work on the V3.

 

It should work with the 1oz steel loads we shoot at the Naperville trap range.  I do load 11/16oz light loads that I doubt will cycle the bolt, but I wouldn't expect them to.  I've never had a gun that points exactly where I want it to at all times, seems they all miss a target from time to time!

I just spoke with Mike, who makes this shell catcher for the VeraMax and it won't work for the V3.  He is making a V3 specific shell catcher, which I will purchase as soon as possible.

I've now shot about ten rounds of trap with the V3.  It's certainly not a trap gun like my BT99, but it's not supposed to be.  The V3 has worked perfectly without a single problem.  The recoil is so soft compared to my 870 that shooting the V3 is like shooting a .410.  The gas system works perfectly, it ejects all of my reloads from 1 1/8oz fast games loads to my 11/16 oz low recoil practice loads (both 2 3/4").  It throws the 11/16oz hulls about 15' so the system is not suffering from low pressure.  This gas system is so simple, that it's genius.  There are no o-rings, no seals, just the ports and pistons - I can't imagine what could go wrong with it.
