Remington has announced that its popular V3 semi-automatic shotgun is now be available in a compact version with a shorter length of pull for youth and smaller-statured shooters.

Featuring a 22-inch barrel length, the V3 Compact utilizes Remington’s unique VersaPort gas-operated system first offered in the Versa Max in 2010, although in a new, upgraded version built on a slimmer, shorter receiver designed for 3-inch shells.

The VersaPort design relies on shell length to expose up to eight gas ports that regulate the amount of gas used to reliably operate the action. With longer, more powerful 3-inch loads, half the ports are blocked; shorter, milder 2¾-inch shells leave all eight ports uncovered, bleeding off excess gas through a pair of compensators in the gas block. New to the design, the compensators also assist in recoil reduction.

The new V3 Compact is available in 12-gauge and has an MSRP of $915.
