Remington is giving smaller-statured shooters all the advantages of its VersaPort gas system that can reliably cycle a variety of loads packaged with a shorter length of pull in their new Compact V3 shotgun.
The Compact V3 weighs in at 7.25-pounds and comes with a light-contour 22-inch barrel to complement the shorter length of pull, giving it the pointability the Versamax series of shotguns are known for in a smaller package. Despite the smaller size, the a 44-inch overall length Remington V3 flawlessly cycles all 2 ¾ to 3-inch 12-gauge loads. And Remington says the VersaPort gas piston reduces recoil to a level previously unheard of in autoloaders, ideal for smaller shooters.
The patented VersaPort system consists of gas ports and gas pistons that self-regulate pressure based on the length of the shell to reliably cycle loads whether you’re using the lightest target loads or the heaviest of magnums. All of this while softening recoil and reducing maintenance.
Unlike other gas-operated semi-auto shotguns, the V3 VersaPort system is located directly in front of the receiver. This allows for a slim forend, creating ideal ergonomics for smaller shooters and centers the weight between their hands. This delivers superior balance and swing performance, making the V3 is as comfortable on the sporting clays range as it is in the duck blind. The Compact V3 comes in a black oxide finish with an MSRP of $915.
