Remington V3 Field Sport 12 GA 28″ Shotgun in Walnut
Remington’s V3 Field Sport incorporates the Versaport gas system’s unfailing reliability and super soft recoil into a sleek platform. V3 Shotguns have the athletic handling and pointability that has made Remington autos an icon in the field since their introduction. With the hard-hitting 3″ mags, rounds cycle with unrelenting consistency. Remington’s V3 Field Sport is able to cycle consistently because of the Versaport gas pressure operating system. Versaport regulates gas pressure based on shell length, making the V3 able to cycle 2.75″ to 3″ magnum shotshells interchangeably. The V3 Field Sport also looks as good as it shoots, thanks to its traditional walnut stock and black oxide finished steel receiver.”(1)

“Remington. A 200-year-old company whose résumé includes the most popular semi-automatic shotgun of all time—the Model 1100; 4+ million sold and counting. But a company reportedly on the skids over the past decade, one whose semi-automatic shotgun credibility and market share have been eroded by imports from Italy, Japan and Turkey.(2)
To battle back, Remington reinvented its gas operation with a system called VersaPort, a concept modeled on one developed in Italy in the 1990s and first adapted by the Benelli M4. After obtaining a U.S. patent, Remington introduced VersaPort in its Versamax model in 2010.” (2) “With the addition of the lightweight, 3″-capable V3 to our lineup, every possible hunting or sporting application is now under the reign of our Versaport gas system”.(3)
“The V3 incorporates the system’s unfailing reliability and super soft recoil into a sleek platform with the athletic handling and pointability that have made Remington autos an icon in the field. From light 2 ¾” target loads to the hardest-hitting 3″ mags, it cycles them all with the same unrelenting consistency. Choose from durable synthetic stocked models in all black or decked stock to muzzle in Mossy Oak Break Up Country or Blades Camo. For traditional good looks, the V3 is also available with American walnut woodwork and a rich satin finish.”(3)
“There’s every reason to think the V3 platform will be adapted, and later on I bet we’ll see competition guns, youth guns, sub-gauges, dedicated waterfowl and turkey models, and more. One intriguing possibility is a semi-automatic with a folding stock, a feature tactical and home-defense shooters love on their pump shotguns, but which hasn’t been an option for mainspring-dependent autoloaders.”(2)
