That's the word, straight from the top, and I have nothing further.


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.
