From smooth-running semi-autos to a new double barrel, these 2015 shotguns have you covered from the clays course to the hunting fields.
The big news from Big Green this year was the introduction of the V3, a gas-operated semi-auto that features a new compact Versa-Port gas system located directly in front of the receiver. Reduction is the name of the game for the V3. The reduced-length gas system adds a gas port, which reduces recoil, allows for a shorter receiver length, improves balance and reduces overall weight. In fact, the V3, at 7.2 pounds, is more than a pound lighter than the 11-87. The V3 also features recoil return springs built into the receiver rather than the stock, a magazine cut-off and a drilled and tapped receiver. It is available in wood and synthetic stocks, with 26- and 28-inch barrel lengths in 12 gauge. ($895-995; remington.com)
