It is my go to when I go to sporting events when we have to shoot the venues shells and they are 1 1/8 as I can't take the recoil in my O/U after about 50 shots and start to flinch. My V-3 is really soft shooting and after about 5000 rounds without a hitch I may have to wonder about cleaning it....1cas
Go ahead you naysayers and tell me I am a shotgun molester...1cas :lol:


:lol: {hs#

Too funny and true of my V3 also. I had my first failure to feed recently with a Remington Gun Club 1145 fps, 1 1/8 oz load. First and only in approximately 2,000 rounds. I may have to buy a back up V3! :shock: :lol:

Depending on how things go, that may not be a bad idea. Certainly as prices go, they`re not that dear compared to others.

What parts? Parts are not a problem-- Remington tends to over-produce in that department. My V3's have been flawless and I've hunted them hard for years by now. You can get complete stock sets for less than $100; Remchokes are about as common as dirt. The V3 has been in production for over 4 years, and it isn't a limited edition. I have replaced no parts in mine.

If someone is really worried-- well, buy two of them. :shock:


Thanks Randy....as always, greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't avoid the V3 due to this issue.

Why not wait a little longer and see what happens.
Would you buy one if Remington Arms no longer exists???

Of course. If that was the case, the price would double, just like it has countless times in the past. A bird in the hand is the better approach. They are getting hard to find right now.

I buy Winchesters all the time and they’ve been out of business for decades. (The Browning Winchester’s are NOT Winchester’s). I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to buy a V3 if I wanted one.

B-80's and 303's were long out of production, but I still bought them. Same with Colt Diamondbacks, A-5's, Marlin Golden 39a's, etc., etc. The eight most desirable 20 gauge repeaters (in my book) are all discontinued or out of production at the moment.

My thought as well.

I guess if Beretta went out of business, I would still buy one, maybe two. :lol:

You guys are thinking like me. But I think I would carry it even further. The gun is so reasonably priced that you can either buy two to protect your parts supply, ditch a broken one because the cost of doing so isn’t onerous, sell it for parts to someone else, etc. After all, it isn’t a Purdy.

I haven’t checked the availability of the V3 lately. Are there plenty out there?

There seems to be a fair amount of listings of V3's on Gunbroker.
However the new 870 Express Trap has disappeared off the face of the Earth
and forget about the 1100 Competition Synthetic.
I'm seeing nice excellent condition Wingmasters going for unbelievably high prices.
There are no "deals" to be had right now online.

I don’t understand this stigma about made in Turkey or elsewhere for that matter. It makes little difference where a product is made these days.


It's just typical stereotyping and ignorance. There are so many cheap and poor quality shotguns coming out of Turkey that it leads many to believe all shotguns from Turkey are junk.

Just the other day I heard someone take poorly about his nice Dickinson SXS because he thought it was made by Huglo, the same company that makes CZ shotguns. His shotgun was not made by the Huglo Cooperative; it was made by AKUS in Huglo. Big difference.

I bought a V3 last spring and glad I did. Mine is the synthetic model , no worry's about a wood stock . I got one of Remington's magazine extensions when they were on sale , so it now hold seven rounds. Great Shotgun. Midwest has V3 parts.

I just purchased one in Realtree Timber. I paid $744.50 all in. I had been waiting for Remington to produce a V3 waterfowl pro with a 26” barrel, no reason to wait anymore... I got the field version with the 26” barrel.

Who knows what will happen To Remington in the future? At least I know I will have an American made V3.

You can forget finding a NIB 870 Wingmaster. There’s tons of tactical 870’s out there though

It depends on the model, but no . . . there are not.
