V3. Gas vs inertia. No contest for me.

+10 V3 owner. Shot probably 20 or more different SA brands in my career and it is gas over inertia every time. {hs# 1cas

If you want the V3, you may want to wait and see if Remington Arms survives.

Dr Duk, I am looking at it the other way, get one while you still can. Even if they survive, there is no guarantee they will still produce them. I read somewhere the auction is later this month. Who knows what Remington will look like in 30 days.

Scheduled for the 17th. They are good guns. Depending upon the results, it will be interesting to see what happens with the gun models and their prices.

Supposing Remington never comes back, I'd be worried about parts availability. Since the V3 has been out a decent while, maybe there are a fair amount of spare parts. Of course, warranty would be meaningless and if they do survive, a warranty may still be meaningless. I don't know how frequently the V3 breaks though.

I had my eye on one at my local Cabella's but trying to get somebody's attention to have a show and tell is downright impossible. I won't buy a shotgun site unseen having never so much as shouldered it. Sadly, that's always my experience at that establishment.

No one here will give you a guarantee. Sorry. Life requires taking chances.

There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of “dainty” parts in the V3. I guess if one shot a bunch of heavy loads, something could go, but I don’t have a guess what it would be.

Even with Remington going through bankruptcy I could never recommend a franchi over them.

Franchi. Too many bad experiences with Remington products.

Of those two I’d pick the Franchi. I’ll take the inertia gun thank you.
