    Mossberg 835?

    Hey guys,
    I have the chance to pick up a Mossy 835 Ultimag for about $200. It is in really nice used condition. It's the standard variety with wood furniture and the gold trigger. I think it has a 24" ported barrel. It is also tapped with a picatiny rail on the top of the receiver. I know that barrels cost a bit more than the 500's, but the same place has another used barrel that could be cut. It looks like lots of common accessories will work (aftermarket stocks, etc...)
    I'd like to be able to use it for Turkey too and it will eat 2 3/4 - 3 1/2 magnums.
    What do you think? Is it worth messing with? Anyone have one?
    I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.

    The 835 is a much better built gun than a 500. I'd buy it for 2 bills.

    I've killed a few dozen turkeys with mine. It was the combo that came with two barrels, a 24 ported barrel and a 24" rifled slug barrel,everything in Advantage camo.

    I wasnt to crazy about it at first, but it threw a helacious pattern with 3.5 #5 shot that was too good to pass up. I would have passed on several turkeys over the years if the pattern wasn't so good, but I have a few 50+ yard kills that I wouldnt have tried with any other gun.

    Be advised though, with a heavy dose of shot in the 3.5 shell, that thing kicks like a mule.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Got one of those for home defense.


    Not the most tacticool of the shotties, but it will deliver buck with accuracy.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
