Oops. It's called "mossberg 535 specs".Finmuffin said:Look in the Waterfowl forum under "Mossberg 535 or 870 express" i think. a couple 835 users responded.
Go for it. I can't tell you on the price but as far as the gun is concerned you can't go wrong buying one. Despite all the hype regarding Mossbergs. They are quite reliable guns. Considering that my 835 has stood up to my abuse, some of which was intentional :roll: . The Mossberg is one of the few shotguns that I have found a person can throw down in the dirt, go do something else then come back a little later pick it up, chamber a round, aim and fire. Like I said you won't regreat buying that 835.GunOne said:I have opportunity to buy a Mossberg 835, with 24" nonported barrel in woodland camo. It in very good condition. What are your thoughts on the 835? What's a fair price?
The 835 is a little bit nicer and more from-the-factory options. The 535 Is basicly just a 500 chambered for 3.5in. shells. The 835 is built from the ground up (they claim) though I suspect it shares a great number of common parts with the 590. The 835 is overbored and ported where as the 535 (to my knowledge) is not. The 835 has a few more cosmetic features as well. It just over all a little nicvr looking/working.hogfan81 said:I looked at an 835 tonight. I think it was a turkey special as the barrel couldn't have been over 24 inches, and probably not even that. Seems like the price was less than $300. Had tru-glo sights or something similar and a thumbhole stock with a big, blocky, ventilated forend. If I was looking for a dedicated gobbler gun, I would probably pick this one. If you can get a rifled barrel for deer, so much the better. Is the 535 similar? Does it have the overbored barrel of the 835? Any major reasons to go with an 835 over a 535?
The 24" barrel will have limited use, but you can buy other length barrels for the 835, to make the gun more versatile. They are a pretty hardy gun in my experience. Takes a lickin, and keeps on kickin.GunOne said:I have opportunity to buy a Mossberg 835, with 24" nonported barrel in woodland camo.
