Great quote about lack of interest. So Remington.

I’m assuming if they were going to include shims the price would have to increase a bit. I guess they figured it was good for most of their customers. It’s a Sportsmans grade so the reality is, they should come out with a waterfowl edition like they did with the versa max and include them on the higher end model with a case and everything the waterfowl pro comes with. Like the versa max they could add $400 to the price

I suppose some are still "waiting" for 1100, 11-87, and 870s to get shims after 16,000,000 guns sold as well. :lol:

You make a good point, everyone I know who shoots Remington’s, including myself have learned to live with the the stock dimensions. Or you add adjustable butt plates, adjustable combs, homemade shims, moleskin, cheek savers, pitch adjusters and just about anything else you can slap on to their stocks.

After 16,000,000 why should they start caring about gun fit now.

I’m average and Remington’s always fit me perfectly.
Remington’s best bet is to come up with many different models and variations like a tactical V3, a turkey gun, a competition gun, a waterfowl edition(with shins)… Etc.

I’m sure they will eventually get there but the sooner the better. Longer they take more people will buy other guns instead

The vast majority of popular shotguns sold over the years (870, Mossberg 500, Ithaca M37, Brownng BPS, the Browning Auto-Five, Beretta 686's, Citori's, etc., etc.) were not sold with shims. Wonder why?

All a shim can do it change the angle of the buttstock as it juts out from the receiver. That is no semblance to professional stock fitting and does nothing to change comb width, pistol grip shape, pistol grip placement, or any actual physical stock dimensions. If you need an adjustable comb or a custom stock, shims are of no benefit.

I agree - Remington produced a lot of great shotguns. But the times have changed - they may want to produce shims - if for no other reason than to make buyers think they have adjustment capability.

Now a stock like that would be awesome on a V3

According to the Remington website, the V3 no longer has a lifetime warranty. It's only two years: https://www.remington.com/support/firea ... nformation

I wonder if that’s for all guns sold now? I got mine in 2016. I’d assume they would Honor the guns they said has the lifetime warranty for the 2 years they sold them?

Any ideas Randy? Im guessing you sometimes speak to reps

The Remington website is in conflict with itself. If you go to the link a few posts up and head to the bottom of the page and select the V3 it does take you to the 2 year warranty page. However, if you go to the product page for the V3 and then select the warranty button it takes you to the lifetime warranty page.

To a certain extent they are both correct, or at least they were both correct when I purchased my V3 Walnut. To qualify for the lifetime warranty you need to register your gun with Remington within 30 days of purchase. If you don't then you get the shorter warranty. This was clearly outlined in the printed material that came with my gun, and it was also outlined in the information available on the website. The 30 day requirement is still outlined in the material on the website if you follow the link from the V3 product page to the warranty.

At present it is certainly confusing. Hopefully the confusion will be cleared up, and in the direction of the lifetime warranty, although the warranty was not the reason I purchased my gun.

It isn't just the V3, it is all Remington firearms, announced here on Tuesday, April 26, 2016: https://www.remington.com/news/2016/rem ... m-warranty

The link hasn't changed from the announcement page: https://www.remington.com/support/firea ... e-warranty

As everyone knows, Remington is in the middle of a complicated Chapter 11 reorganization. For the time being, it is business as usual, with new products (870 DM, RP45, Model 700 PCR) being released and shipping.

As for the future, it is unknowable. No one knows who will own Remington a year from now.

You could buy the Model A in any color you wanted too, as long as it was black.

The courts approved Remington's Chapter 11 reorganization yesterday. As a result, Remington is set to emerge from Chapter 11 this month.

Maybe you missed the part about selling 16,000,000 guns and also all the other explanation of why Remington is actually in bankruptcy. If you did, I’ll give a little refresher: it’s not because they didn’t have shims for their guns.

Guess I have some of the " new " and some of the " old " when it comes to Remington. For the " new " , a walnut V3 that I like very much and with which I`m looking forward to hitting the dove field in September. For the " old " ( I suppose ) , it`s a pre-owned 12 gauge 870 Super Magnum SP-T, of `05 to `07 vintage, with a red dot sight. Took a turkey with it just last week. That thing`s like a block of iron and tight as can be. Kicks like a mule, but that`s what Limbsavers are for ! Both Remingtons and I`m proud to own and shoot them both.

Right, its because people starting buying guns of higher quality and more features......like adjustability.

11-87=JUNK
CTi105=JUNK
CTi2 105=JUNK

Express shotgun line=JUNK
