mossberg 835 question
 
I have been looking at a couple of 835s at my lgs and I'm trying to decided if it's worth upgrading my 500 to one for the 3 1/2in chamber one has a cheap red dot and the other one just has a bead sight thanks for your help.

I would go with a 535 before I bought an 835 bc the 835s have the oversized bore like the 935s and from what have seen and read that don't pattern well with turkey loads I'm not sure about other loads

If you really feel the need for 3" chamber, then go for it. I've got a 835 but mostly shoot just 2 3/4" and 3" shells. As for the sights, I put a fiber optic on mine, works for me but YMMV.

Haha, it's not that bad really, but a good recoil pad helps. I do shoot them for fun, but it stops being fun after 15 or so :p

Yeah, that's really annoying. The 3" shells might give you just the extra kick you need for that. And it's also fun to put friends behind the trigger with those loads if they've never shot them before :D

I've understood most people use 3" for turkey in the US. Would be fun to try, but we don't have any around here.
