The following is a press release from Remington
Remington Arms Company, LLC, (“Remington”) is pleased to announce that the V3 – a new 3-inch chambered, American designed and built shotgun that represents the return of America’s greatness in autoloading shotguns, is now shipping and available at retailers, dealers and distributors across the country.
The all new V3 shotgun blends Remington’s legendary pointability with the reliability of the revolutionary VersaPort gas system in a compact and lightweight platform. A match only made in America. The Remington V3 flawlessly cycles all 2 ¾ to 3-inch 12 gauge loads while reducing recoil to a level previously unheard of in autoloaders.

Unlike other gas operated semi-automatic shotguns, the VersaPort pistons are positioned directly in front of the receiver and its recoil springs are located inside the receiver to improve ergonomics and center weight and balance between the shooter’s hands – delivering superior balance and lively swing.
The heart of the Remington V3 autoloading shotgun is the patented VersaPort gas piston system, an extremely-reliable, semi-automatic operating system consisting of gas ports and gas pistons for enhanced load versatility, while softening recoil and reducing maintenance. The VersaPort gas system self-regulates gas pressure based on the length of the shell, for reliable cycling no matter the load. From the lightest target loads to the heaviest magnum loads, the V3 is as comfortable on the sporting clays range as it is in the duck blind.

Additionally with its self-cleaning gas piston system, overall maintenance time and effort is significantly reduced. With fewer parts than conventional gas systems, not only is cleaning easier but there are fewer parts to maintain.
The Remington V3 is currently available in black synthetic and camo versions. All V3shotguns ship with three screw-in Remchokes™ (Improved, Modified, and Full chokes). The V3 shotgun is the new American autoloader, from Remington.
