Mossberg 935

Postby h20fowlhunter » Fri Oct 01, 2004 7:39 am

Does any one have reports on this new gun, i own a 835 and love it , just looking to step up to a autoloader. Im lookin at this gun or a beretta extrema, i know it dosent shoot 23/4" but hey i never ever shoot that stuff trough my goose gun anyways. It would be used for puddleducks/canada geese.

I bought a 935 mag 2 weeks ago, put 250 rounds through it,and absolutley love it! The camo pattern is superb, the fit and finish is great for a 3-1/2 semi-auto that only costs $450.00! Mossberg says it only shoots 3" and 3-1/2" shells, but after I ran about 100-125 3" shells through it it cycled 2-3/4" also!

Pretty much what Duckhuntin' Fool said. It's a very nice gun for the money and the "guts" look remarkably like a SX2. :thumbsup:

i bought a 935 and had to send it back b/c it wouldnt eject the shell. but now it has been the best gun i have ever owned. its a lil tempermental when its dirty but i love that gun so much. everyone i hunt with has pumps but i dont have to pump and i dont lose my bead like they do when they have to cycle there gun.

I love my 935 in max 4. It patterns awesome. It has no problems shooting high brass 2 3/4 shells its the smaller target loads it gets choked up on sometimes. As for a waterfowl gun its gotta be one of the best values out there.

F&S gave this gun their #1 pick of the year for shotguns in price vs value. I am looking for the shotgun in Utah but so far no luck, a local can order one in but nothing to size it with. So far from what I have read and heard it is a sweet gun and one that you wont mind getting muddy...

I bought a brand new 1187 left last Dec for duck hunting and since day one it jams almost every shot. I took it to 2 gun smith and sent it back to the factory and it still jams. Opening morning of duck season it jammed again. I went to Brass Pro and got the 935 Max 4 Camo pattern that gun hasn't missed a lick yet i love it.

I pick mine up on 12/15. I live in Calif and had to really search for the gun. For all of you that live in a normal state, check out Wallmart. Yes Wallmart. $475 + tx. They are not allowed to sell firearms in Calif. You'll have to order it, but they can have it in about 10 days. I can't wait!!

I bought mine about a month ago. It has performed very well. I have to make sure that I push the shells all of the way up until it clicks or the shells will sometimes kick back up under the loading gate.

Academy Sports here in Little Rock had them for $379 in the paper the other day.. I paid $429 for a black one. Great gun so far!!

Took it out thurs and ran a box of shells through it. Hunted with it on Sat and I couldn't be happier. Just shot 3". I have an A-5 Browning 3" Mag and have shot that for the last 10 yrs. The 935 fits me alot better.

I dont have one (yet :smile: ), but I have heard good reports about it (like the posts above), but the only thing that keeps me from pouncing on one is the whole "over boared barrell", I dont really understand the system. Does anyone know how and why this is better? It makes sense that the recoil is reduced, but what about the patterning? Mabey some answers to this post will help you (h20fowlhunter) too.

The overbored barrel definitely gives you a better pattern. I don't know the science behind it, but when I patterned my 835 and 935 against my 870 with the same loads the Mossy's put it to shame.

But how does the wad keep pressure behind it if it is a 12G. wad traveling thru a 10G. sized barell?

Over boring is a trick that the great skeet shooters have been using for years, it gives your shot a longer space to taper down in. It is supposed to give less shot deformity, and is supposed to pattern better. I would think that this would pertain more to lead than to steel shot. I have also read where the over boring only works when the barrel is warm, can’t quite figure this one out.

I wasn't smart enough to look into the future. I actually had plans to move to Colorado but before I knew it time caught up with me.

Make sure you clean it everytime you use it! I have shot it every weekend and weds. That's when the refuge is open. I didn't do a through cleaning last time and I noticed it wasn't working as smooth as before. Break it down and clean it before you use it too.

Good Luck!

i bought a 935 last year and it not too bad. although i have found a couple of problems with it. the safety switch got real stiff. the forearm shifts alittle bit. the shell didnt reload two of three times since ive had it.

Anyone looking for a 935, or any gun....check out www.gunbroker.com. Pretty great site. FFL's sell to all, but must be shipped to a local FFL. Mine charges me $20 bucks for anything sent to him. Most of the FFL's selling on the site charge $20-$25 to ship to another FFL. Good luck and be safe. :salude:

Hey all im back with my shadow grass 935 26" and if it werent dark right now i would be shooting it. Heres the stroy....I went to go pick it up from the shop and went home and shot a box of 3inch magnums and then tried to shoot the winchester handicap target load, and nothin. it wouldnt eject. So after a good cleaning and hours of trying to figure out how to put it back together i went to bed at 12 on a school nite(im a freshman in High school). I finally got that thing together and used a little bit of rem oil and went to bed. So today i went to walmart and bought 10, 3 1/2 inch turkey shells and some winchester super sport. I shot two 3 1/2 inch shells and it threw them into the next town, and then i got the super sport and 3 of them got cycled perfectly so all the talk about 2 3/4 inch shells...not true. Mine cycled all three kinds and im happy. So if you are in the market for a 935...go for it. hope this helps! :salude:
