I have a V3 field sport in camo that I picked up when it came out here a few years ago. Many of you work your guns a lot harder than I do so my question is about the camo. I noticed on the Versa Max Waterfowl over time it would wear and you’d see the white synthetic underneath it. I haven’t seen that yet from the V3. Have any of you? I’m just wondering if they improved their camo
Cheers

It isn't a white synthetic as the primer that's applied. As the clear coat gets worn down mostly around the edges it eats through the film. They all wear about the same from what I've seen. Some aftermarket guys like color and Camo and Camo solutions and some others,use a heavy automotive clear coat that holds up well. They also do some gun manufacturers as well. Just keep heavy duty mosquito
repellent off the clear coat, as well as solvents. If you get it on wipe off with wet rag. Ask me how I know.........

Yes I’ve need warned about the solvents before. I’m asking because I’ve noticed how much it wore off on the Versa max but so far is holding up perfectly on the v3.
I’m really just interested in seeing how the V3 Camo is holding up!

Ok this what I found out sorry it not horribly complete. The versa max Camo to three of the owners I spoke to are having premature wearing. The two guys I spoke to with V3s it's holding up pretty well... that being said the versa max guns have been in the field longer but said it began wearing pretty quick...FWIW...

Maybe ask Randy to see where the finishes are applied, if they are the same. In house or not. A lot of manufacturers contract that out...

As far as I know, there isn't any difference. It all surrounds the quality of the clear-coat. There are more advanced clear-coats out there: https://www.clearcoating.com/testing/de ... esistance/ . If anyone is using Cerakote MC-160 or MC-161 as a factory clear-coat, they seem to be keeping it a secret.
