Featuring a 22-inch barrel and a shorter length of pull, the newest addition to Big Green’s V3 line of autoloading shotguns is pitched to smaller statured users.

The new 12 gauge shotgun, announced Friday, uses the same V3 VersaPort gas system as on their standard semi-auto scattergun series. Located in front of the receiver, the system is billed by the iconic shotgun maker as delivering superior balance and swing performance. Unlike the current Field series V3s, which are offered in walnut, Oak Blades camo, and synthetic varieties and all sport a 28-inch barrel, the new Compact comes standard with a 22-inch light contour barrel.

Chambered to accept both 2.75- and 3-inch shells, the VersaPort system is advertised by Remington as “reducing recoil to a level previously unheard of in autoloaders” across the range of shells from light target loads to heavy magnums. Weight is listed as 7.25-pounds with a 44-inch overall length.

Available with a black oxide finish, the Compact V3 is priced at $915 MSRP, or about $20 more than the full-sized synthetic V3 Field model.
