Im looking for a new waterfowl semi auto and was wondering if there is a real difference between the v3 and versa max besides 3in for v3 and 3.5 for max

Sure there is, a different action / trigger / etc. / etc., barrel id's chokes, receiver length, weight, and so forth. Different guns entirely.

It is more of a question what suits you, not the duck. I personally like the V3 and prefer it to a lot of other shotguns. If you want a 3-1/2 inch chambered shotgun, or not, is all up to you.

Fit and finish is a major preference to the shooter.....Hold one to another and see what fits.

I would chose the VM if I had to have just one. I like the 3.5" option in case you go for big geese, however if I was going for nothing but ducks with no geese as an option, the V3 is my choice.

3" or 3 1/2"..........That's the real question!

I had a versa max waterfowl since 2010. Got the V3 in 2016 and preferred It over the versa max. I sold the versa max a few months ago because I always reached for the V3 and the versa max started to collect dust. I knew I wouldn't use it anymore
It's nice to have a gun that shoots 3.5" shells but the fact is you don't really need them
Goodluck, let us know what you decide

I've had the Vmax for three seasons now and the only complaint I have about it is the magazine tube cap loosens itself over time. Nothing major however I find myself checking it all the time. I don't know much about the V3 however I do like the ability to shoot 3.5" shells if need be. I personally like having the third shell in the tube as a 3.5 once the migrators start coming in as well for divers. I also really like knowing that if I were to run out of shells in the blind, everything a buddy hands me, I can shoot. I have never had any sort of malfunction with mine over the years and do believe it to be a great firearm. Hope this helps!

Fit and finish on a waterfowlgun is of no consideration to me.
