Remington V3 Field Sport
The V3 Field Sport itself is not new, but Remington did bring out a Walnut-stocked version ahead of SHOT Show. Like other V3 Field Sport shotguns, this one utilizes Remington’s self-regulating VersaPort gas system, which offers both reliability and reduced recoil with a wide variety of loads. It also features a SuperCell Recoil Pad and optimized balance and swing characteristics. Weight is just 7.2 pounds, and the gun is available with a 26- or 28-inch barrel. Shooters caring more about functionality than appearance can opt for a synthetic stocked model in all black or camo. ($995; Remington.com)
