Friend of mine just got a V3 in camo and brought it over so I grabbed my 1100 mag project and to the camp we went. We shot a sample of about every shell I had, patterned it shot skeet with it and made some side by side comparisons between the two models, different technology separated by many years.
I will confess this is really a hell of shotgun. It threw as good a pattern as mine, shouldered very well and performed flawless. My trigger was better but only because its a $90 Timney trigger fix. It also shot 2 3/4 light loads that my gun just simply cant reliably handle, even though it wasn't made to.
and another confession, even with my limbsaver on my 1100 mag project and being a heavier gun, using the same shells all day....the V3 "kicked" less and while it wasn't a difference between like my SBE 2 and my 1100, I really could feel the difference.
I stand very impressed with this gun. First time actual shooting comparison left me feeling very good about the V3.

Me too. 28" walnut, at the local skeet range. Have to admit, starting out, I didn`t shoot it particularly well. Always believed the shooting axiom that it`s 90 % Indian, 10% bow. Shot it well (for me ) today, though. Funny what happens when you relax, focus on the target, and SWING THE GUN. My skeet shooting is prep for hunting, so I hardly keep score. The gun, mechanically, has performed flawlessly. Would recommend anyone looking for a new SA to give it a serious look, especially for a field gun.

The gun I lend out when someone's gun breaks or malfunctions is my SBE2, that way no matter what shells they have it will function with them all. If it wasn't a shell consideration thing I would easily buy this as my lender gun. I think they would enjoy shooting it a whole lot more I can tell you that.
