I'm a newbie. My handle on other forums that I post on is mo jenkins. I'll have to register here when I'm done posting. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has tried to build a combat shotgun out of the 835.... Would any of the other mag extensions work?? or would I have to try and FUTZ my own extension... Anybody got any ideas????
With 3.5" magnums do you really need a magazine tube extension?!?!? They hold 4 in the tube and 1 in the chamber from the factory (to my knowledge). That's 5 shots!! Multiply that by 2.25 ounces per shot and you have just thrown over 11 ounces of shot at your assailant!! Assuming you are using number 4 shot, that's over 1,485 hard hitting pellets!!! Besides, after 5 3.5 ' magnums in rapid succession, you probably won't even want to look at that gun again, much less fire a 6th round!!! The 835 should actually work good for self-defense because it has a fairly short barrel and it's a pump gun that is from a fairly reputable manufacturer!! -Matt Latham
Ditto to that. A miss is a miss. Also, I turkey hunt with the 3.5" but other than that 3" is as big as I shoot. I prefer a high brass 2 3/4" or 3" so I can get off quicker follow up shots. With the 3.5" shells, you are in hella state of shock after each shot. Personally, I dont want anything slowing me down. Just my .02
