Yeah tell me about it this is the one of those guns that stay in the family for a long time. My great grandfather had a marlin model 55 with a 28" barrel, it's got very little bluing but it tells a story and that's what I would hope to hand down to the hopefully many generations to come of my family.

In spite of the shorter barrel the BPS Upland is still not really a lightweight, which will be good if you touch off a 3-1/2" shell. The BPS is a very well designed and build shotgun. I had three and not one ever missed a beat. But, I could never grow to love bottom loading. I'd prefer a Wingmaster Special Field if I wanted a quality short pump. Your choice.

I have a Remington 870 Wingmaster Special Field in 20 ga, I really like it. Stock looks just like the Browning pictured above.

I have the same in 3"
The Remington uses unique barrels as it holds one less shell
Not sure why a 3.5" for upland

Just because it can shoot 3.5's does not mean it is required. But it is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. Maybe the shooter will go on a turkey hunt between upland seasons.

It = 3.5 inch chamber.

I wager that dude kicks like a Missouri mule when shooting 3.5 turkey loads. :

Neither did I. Catalog says 3" but I haven't kept up with them over the years so there is a possibility they did. Receiver looks standard length though.

Well I could be wrong it's 3" magnum I thought that might mean 3.5.
