3 new guns that hit the target at 2019 SHOT Show
Wednesday, February 20, 2019
The brand-new .350 Legend cartridge from Winchester was far from the only cool new product released at the 2019 SHOT Show.
Indeed, the list of merchandise unveiled is far too long to list here. However, below are three particularly interesting new guns introduced at the show that might be worth checking out this year.

Remington V3 Turkey Pro
While the Remington V3 is not a new shotgun, Remington made some tweaks to the basic design and released two new models for 2019: the V3 Turkey Pro and the V3 Waterfowl Pro. While these models are very similar to the basic V3, both of the new shotguns have a few new features, like an oversized bolt handle as well as a beveled loading port.
In particular, the Turkey Pro also has a shorter, 22” barrel and 13” length of pull to make it easier to handle within the tight confines of a turkey blind. Additionally, it comes with a red dot 1x optic, a fiber-optic front sight, and a pre-installed TruGlo Headbanger turkey choke. The shotgun has a 12-gauge bore and a 3” chamber. Remington advertises that the gas system will reliably cycle across the whole spectrum of 2 ¾” and 3” shells.

Weatherby Mark V Camilla Ultra Lightweight
Named in honor of founder Roy Weatherby’s wife, the Mark V Camilla line of rifles is designed specifically for female hunters and shooters. This isn’t just a shortened version of the standard Mark V either.
While it does have a shorter length of pull, this model also incorporates a number of other features intended for a more comfortable and ergonomic fit for women. Among other things, the Mark V Camilla has a slimmer grip and forearm, a slight cant to the recoil pad, and a higher comb.
The Mark V Camilla Ultra Lightweight also has a few weight-saving features like a fluted barrel and a composite stock. Weighing it at just 5 ¾ pounds, this is a great rifle for hunting in mountainous terrain. It’s currently available in .240 Weatherby Magnum, 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Winchester, .308 Winchester, and .30-06 Springfield and comes with Weatherby’s sub-MOA guarantee when using premium ammo.

Ruger Hawkeye Long Range Target
Ruger is doing their best to capitalize on the growing market of long-range shooters with the Hawkeye Long Range Target. In this case, the company is appealing to shooters who wanted a purpose-built, long-range rifle with the look, feel, and controlled-feed action of the Ruger Hawkeye. This rifle uses a standard Hawkeye action with a free-floated, heavy-contour barrel and a laminate stock with adjustable comb and length of pull.
Tipping the scales at 11 pounds, this is not a lightweight rifle by any stretch of the imagination. However, that weight coupled with the attached muzzle brake really tames recoil and makes the Hawkeye Long Range target a very pleasant rifle to shoot.
The company unveiled the Hawkeye Long Range Target in .300 Winchester Magnum during 2018 and expanded the line this year to include the 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC cartridges.
