Those of you with V3's haven't had any problems? I'm quite leery of Remington products as a whole although I haven't looked at shotguns lately. This V3 is brand new to me.

I bought mine in Last December. Probably shot 2000+ rd, mostly Walmart Winchester/Federal 12ga 1 1/8oz 1200fps ammo. I haven't done full cleaning yet. No problem so far

I use mine for clays. Kinda fun bringing a box of 3.5” BB rounds and vaporizing them at distance. If your in NorCal your welcome to shoot mine.

I live in Nevada city, but am down in Sacramento and Modesto all the time. That would be nice to check one out before buying.

Just seeing that the " newer " models of the Stoeger 3000 are hitting the shelves. In particular, the cerakote finished model. The fitting of the newer models are really astounding. Just don't don't how favorable/unfavorable they compare in performance to the competition.

I have the A300 and A400. Seriously.....itís not even close. The A400 shoots much softer than the A300. The A300 is a solid shotgun, but between the two, the A400 shoots like Ferrari compared to Ford - A400.

I had the a400 xplor model for a season and didnít like it. Not sure if it didnít fit me or what the deal was. It was a cheek slapper. A300 was easy and cheap to get set up.

I have the A400 xtreme plus, it's a bit more stiff than the Xcel sporting I've shot before but in a good way. Ko3 vs ko ......The xcel sporting I shot was springy and moved around on my shoulder, it was weird to me.
