V gun is a period 726 gun that fires 7-in-a-row Corderships and is named after its shape. It was found by Dave Greene on June 30, 2003. It works by having a 21-glider salvo meets a 27-glider salvo, following a recipe that was posted on May 7, 2003. The period 726 Herschel factories are made from matched pairs of stable glider reflectors; they could be replaced by Herschel factories of any desired period ≥ 726.
