    Asking for feed back at 7.49 then buying the item a couple of hours later, suggests a touch of impatience my good man

    How did the V3 go @jakewire ?

    If I ever replace my old 11-87 the Versamax or V3 would be tempting...

    Well I shot three rds of clays with it this afternoon, as well as a round with the Miroku
    Definitely softer shooting than the Miroku and my friends older Browning Citori.
    Another guy had a Versamax , though I didn't get to shoot that I got to look it over and it is a bigger gun than the V3 for sure

    I have three failures to load with the first box of Eley trap Olympic blues 28gram, just would not quite go into a battery without a slight shove on the handle, However I fired a box of three inch steel next followed by another box of Olympic and had no more problems
    was consistently getting only two misses per rd, so pretty happy first up.

    The Magazine cut off is easier to use than the Browning Maxus and SKB1900, if fact it is excellent and will save much unloading when in the field.

    I think I was using the normal one , however as above after a box of three inch steel no problems with the light load for the last box.
