    The V3 performed perfectly
    I would suggest that anyone looking for a new gun in the Benally/ Beretta/ Browning range that wants it for work,
    buy this gun
    It is 4-500$ less the others, maybe 200$ than the Beretta A300 and it works

    yep Remington don't do fiddly sharp bits.
    Chokes are interesting
    It comes with 4
    Rem choke modified in the barrel and three extended ones

    One labelled " "Over decoys"
    Another ,"Pass shooting"
    The last "Flooded Timber"
    mm improved cylinder?
    improved modified?
    skeet?
    The V3 performed perfectly
    hows the weight and balance?

    I like it, the weight is about a pound less than the 11 87 and it balances for me really well
    It has a much better trigger than the Maxus [that wouldn't be hard] and swing nicely

    I will try and find a two shot mag extension for it,I would want any more as I think that would upset the gun, there is one made now by Nordic components but they will not ship to New Zealand

    The chokes are
    003 Flooded Timber, 006 over decoys, 009 pass shooting

    I'm thinking
    Flooded timber - improved cylinder
    Over decoys - modified
    Pass Shooting - full

    Not sure whether this is a simple version for steel where in actual fact in the real world it could mean
    Flooded timber - Cylinder
    Over decoys - improved cylinder
    Pass shooting - modified or improved modified

    I guess patterning them against a set of normal labelled chokes with the same ammo would be the only way to tell.

    any weight loss would be a improvement gain over the lumpy 1100 the 1187 I heard bad things about so never touched one.
    a acquaintance bought the vesermax liked the gun but not the loosish rattly forend??

    Most new semi auto shotguns need a few rounds through them to free them up as northdude says, maybe 2-3 boxes does the trick.
    When hunting think safety first
