Today marks 1 year with my black synthetic VM. Mine was an early production gun that sat on the shelves for a while until I purchased it last summer. Overall I am very happy with the gun. It is super easy to clean, there is virtually no recoil, in over 8,000 rounds it has never failed to feed or eject even with super wimpy 3/4oz poof loads, and I have it dialed in so it shoots where I look. I shoot everything low gun and was able to score my first 25, 50, and 74(grrrr) straight in skeet, and some of my best scores in sporting. All I have changed is the comb insert to medium (I looked at the back of the receiver with the standard one.), set the stock shim with cast-on, and use an extended IC factory Pro-Bore choke ($10 at CDNN).
The gun is not without its issues. I had to have the barrel replaced due to a cross threaded gas port. Around round 4k, the bolt came apart which required a trip back to Remington. They paid shipping both ways, fixed the gun, and had it back to me in under 7 days. The only issue I have had since then was the stock bolt working itself loose over time. I added some loctite and haven't had the issue since. I prefer a narrower fore grip, but with the gas system there isn't much that can be done about it.
It's not the prettiest shotgun, but overall I am happy with it.
