Well that didn't last.

Didn't take me long to remember why I and many others quit sgw. Ads and blowhards.



You quit?.................I guess many snowflakes need to retreat to their "safe place".

Thanks to the rebate a few weeks back i'm finally a V3 owner after reading about since Randy starting writing about it in 2015. Thanks Remington!

Now my question, are you guys putting any lube on the recoil springs or are you just putting a drop in the trigger group and a light coating in the receiver like it says in the manual? The springs seem a little stiff and I was just wondering if a drop on the springs would make the bolt a little smoother until the springs wear in.

I got the 26" black version and will be sending it off for a camo dip shortly.

They don't offer a synthetic version in camo? Their marketing dept should check the offerings of pretty much every semi auto shotgun manufacturer out there.

They offer two different synthetic camo versions. There are various reasons why someone would rather get their own camo pattern.

The only camo they offer in the 26" is mossy oak country. I'm going to dip mine in Realtree Max4 or Max5. The 28" in Mossy Oak Blades felt barrel heavy.

Oil on the recoil springs isn't going to make them any less stiff....

And springs don't "relax". They take a set (lose a small amount of free length) but their spring rate (what laymen call stiffness) does not change with time.

A drop of Breakfree CLP, or "half a drop" if you can make one. Others have their favorites, but Breakfree CLP is what I've used for years on essentially all repeating shotguns.

I've hunted with both the 26 inch and 28 inch, but I far prefer the balance of the 26 inch. Sitting on a bucket in the duck blind, it doesn't matter that much, but for stuff that flushes, 26 inch is an easy choice (at least for me).

True enough. No trap stocks, no higher comb stocks, no aftermarket stocks, no sale...

Can someone tell me what other Scope bases are interchangeable
with V3.

I assume Versa max is the same dimensions, but how about
1100/870 bases?

I would like to get a scope base rail for the V3, and I can find
a Weaver that specifies Remington 1100/870, and it has a
nice low price like t his one:
https://www.natchezss.com/weaver-1-piec ... matte.html

But, will it fit?


No one could answer so I bought one to find out.
It just seemed to me Remington would be smart
enough to makes parts as interchangeable as
can be, just for simplicity. So any way I bought
the Weaver one piece base above, Weaver part
number 48345 matte 453 finish, for Remington
870.

Yep it fits, same spacing of the holes, have not
installed it yet, but with holes the same spacing
it has to be usable. The price is also right, $9.

Hi guys, looking at the pictures it seems the supercell pad is larger (thicker) on the walnut version than the synthetic. Can anyone verify this? Do you still have both guns Randy?

I know the v3 is smaller than the Versa max and that's why I'm asking

Same identical pad. The included and installed spacer on the V3 walnut makes it look thicker.

Thanks randy. I’d like to actually try the versa max supercell on the V3 as it’s at least 1/4” thicker. I wonder why they didn’t just use the same one from the versa max. It just would have made it a little softer than it alread Is

I wish they'd put out some stocks wwith changeable comb Risers in them . Since it has a figure 8 sight which would make it a trap friendly shotgun it'd only better it by doing so .

Could an owner of a V3 please take an outside diameter (O.D.) measurement of the barrel at the muzzle and 6 inches back from the muzzle?

Thanks so much in advance

I just started to look at the Remington V3 yesterday. I saw a Youtube video by Randy Wakeman about the gun. I used a Benelli Vinci last summer - trap shooting. I did alright.
I had a long, 35 year, lay off. But I did manage a few 25's with the Vinci.

I liked the gun - except... It didn't shoot where it was aimed. It shot high/left. I shimmed it and the pattern moved down to 'acceptable'. But it still shoots 90% left of a vertical line on the target. Benelli punted on the problem Their answer is 'It's not a bug, it's a feature'. That's the line I used in software development to cover my mistakes. Seems Benelli does too.

Anyway, I started looking around for prices on a V3. I found one, on-line for $557 - 28" bbl. Then I spied the $100 Remington rebate. $457 for a new Remington V3! I was going to buy a used SX-1 with a modified bbl and put the bbl on my own SX1. But that's more than $457. And used bbls are hard to find.

So I look and the rebate expired Monday at mid-night! I called Remington - no rebate extensions. I knew that would be the case. I called the seller to see if he'd pre-date a receipt - again no luck. And again, I knew that would be the case. I understand both responses. But I thought it would be worth a try.

Shoot - I think I'll wait to see if Remington comes out with another rebate. Or maybe I'll just put tubes in my minty SX-1. You snooze you lose. My bad. Just needed to share my pain with someone...

I feel your pain. I've had to pass on two very good deals recently one on a V3 and another on a 725 Citori rebates expired. But the fact is that even with rebates my finances aren't permitting a "want" right now. Once I check off some "needs" in our household namely some remodeling then I can forge ahead with or without a rebate. best of luck in your job search if you are continuing on that path.

If you have the patients there are always rebates. Don’t forget Christmas and Boxing Day are coming.

That being said I would definitely wait. It’s a better option then choking out your Winchester. Not to mention it’s a V3. Very different than the Winchester is

Wait - that's the plan for now. This time yesterday I didn't even know there was a V3 - today I'm kicking myself. For $459 0I would have bought one immediately. If I didn't like it I'd give it to a nephew who started shooting last summer - wife and three kids. He's saving for a gun - but it may be years.

I know it's different than my Winchester. But I'm lucky, it seems, it that I'm average build for someone my age. I'm 5'9". Guns fit me right out of the box. I have a M12-Y trap, the SX-1, the Vinci and I trap shoot with them all. I'm sure a V3 would fit me just fine.

But yes - I'm going to wait. Where I live, N. MN. it will be 5 months before we start trap shooting again. And, if I start the year with what I have, that's fine too.

As for tubes in my SX-1... It won't handle steel shot. It's has a 2 3/4 inch chamber. I don't know what I'd use it for except trap shooting. There are no pheasants here. I understand it's a shame to cut a minty gun. The SX-1 is/was a war horse and it's in excellent to minty condition. The full choke is really, really, full. Felt recoil is low as the gun weighs in at over 8 lbs. I'll think about tubes - probably wait to see what I can get down with the V3.

I too had a few different shotguns. Once I got the v3 and versa max I sold my super Vinci, berettas and a few fixed choke shotguns. I just didn’t see the need to keep stuff around I wouldn’t use when I had 2 guns I really liked and capable of anything I would use it for.
