Operating the Firearm

Overview

Read detailed instructions about loading, unloading, and other operation of the Autoloading V3 firearm.

To Load the Firearm:

WARNING! The specific gauge and length of shotshell ammunition suitable for use in your shotgun is marked on the barrel. Different gauges and shell lengths are not interchangeable. DO NOT use any ammunition other than the designated gauge and length specified for your shotgun. Using incorrect ammunition in your firearm can result in a severe malfunction of your firearm or ammunition, leading to personal injury and/or death. See “The Ten Commandments of Firearm Safety.

Ammunition:

The V3™ shotgun is designed to function with 2 3/4 and 3 inch ammunition. If you experience any initial cycling problems with certain loads, we recommend firing a number of cartridges of standard game loads to speed the break-in of your new shotgun.

Always check the cartridge for the correct gauge and length before loading the firearm. To find additional ammunition information, see the Remington catalog or visit the Remington website at www.remington.com.

Although this gun is designed to function with 1 oz target loads it is recommended for a new gun to start out with 1 1/8 oz loads and above during a brief break in period for optimum performance.

WARNING! Do not apply oil, grease, or any lubricants to cartridges. Not following these rules may lead to property damage, personal injury and/or death.
