This is probably one for Randy, but are the non-vented gas blocks now the rule for the V3s, regardless of variant? For some reason I have the idea that some ( Turkey Pro?, Waterfowl Pro? ) are still being produced with the vented block (?).

If not Randy, maybe Remington would answer that question?

They never were. Nor was the compact or the TAC-13 (or the walnut).

OK, great, thanks Randy. Then I`ll take that as a " Yes " to the question that ALL V3 variants are being produced with the unvented gas block.

It has been that way since September, 2018.

I bet there’s some new old stock vented blocks still around. In all fairness though, it didn’t seem to be any kind of problem for the vast majority of users and owners. I shot a bunch of synthetic V3s and never experienced any blowback.

This is my thought. I’m about to buy a synthetic in the next couple of weeks, I’m wondering if I’ll get a new old stock one.

I doubt it will be an issue for me, but like most folks I want what’s considered “up to date.”

Part of the reason I bought the walnut model. A small part of the reason, but I did at least think about it.

I bought a synthetic V3 last January and it had the compensation valves. I had a gas venting problem. Remington replaced the valves with tubes. I suggest that anyone contemplating a synthetic V3 look at the gas system before purchase. But, Remington customer service was easy to deal with and the work and shipping were paid for by the company.

Do the new synthetic & Pro models with the tubes have the vents in the forearm in the same place as the wood version or are they still on the top closer to the receiver like the original V3's?

They do not have exhaust tubes as of yet, just the walnut.

Thats a surprise, I've read that all the newer V3's had the tubes and in one of your posts you mentioned the Pro would have them as well.

I already answered you on YouTube.

Neither my Turkey Pro or Waterfowl Pro have exhaust tubes.

So I was at my club this weekend and shot with a friend who recently got the wood version.
We both shot 7 boxes out of our guns together. When we were done and back to the cabin to clean them I couldn’t believe the difference. His gun barley looked like it had been shot. His mag tube was practically spotless!
My camo gun was filthy. I noticed he has the tubes and non vented gas block as opposed to mine which does and the compensation springs.
Is it the lack of the vented gas block or tubes that keep his so clean?

Certainly don`t shoot 7 boxes at a time at the skeet range through my walnut, but it barely needs a wipe down of the gas block when I`m done. Since to my knowledge the most significant difference in the V3 variants has been the gas blocks, seems reasonable to assume that that would explain your observations. JMHO

Like Tide said above. I also have the tubes with a walnut model which as I understand is normal. Mine gets very little fouling and it makes me feel guilty that I only do a quick wipe down of the interior and bolt face while gun is still assembled. I also apply a drop of my favorite gun oil to the steel ejection plate in the receiver per Remington recommendations.

I always promise myself to do more the next time but that may be 500 shells later. I also take out the CT and reapply some grease at about 200 rounds, more or less. Kind of haphazard about that one, but since I clean thoroughly at around 500 rounds, I have never had any issues with stuck CTs. From what I have seen of other gas autos that I have owned or used, the V3 is a very forgiving shotgun in the maintenance area.

Remington really should put out a spiffy sporting clays V3 model.

Are you guys with non vented gas blocks and the regular compensation valves finding the mag tube very dirty as well? I’m just wondering if it’s the long tubes that help more or the non vented gas blocks
