what is so bad about mossberg 935

Postby papagoosehtr » Sun Jun 09, 2013 9:09 pm

why does it seem mossberg gets such bad rap never owned a 935 but had a 500 always performed great. Thought about a 935 but after reading some posts dont know if its worth the risk. Have a chance to buy a used one pretty good price.

I was going to buy one a few years back but changed my mind for a few reasons. The model then (not sure what they're like now) was very heavy and too bulky. The fiber optic bead on the end of the barrel wouldn't stay tight, and I was told that cheaper low brass loads wouldn't cycle through it. I decided to just stay with my 835 pump I've had for 13 years. Still shoots straight.

I personaly like the looks of the gun and price is reasonable even on a new one. I personaly dont shoot 3.5 shells I have killed many geese with 3 in and 23/4 in as well. Seems like most complaints were over 3.5 shells.

The 935's have their share of fans, make no doubt. If you like the way they feel in your hands, and are not expecting Browning/Beretta quality, the Mossberg should satisfy you and give you good service.

Since you like your 500, the 935 should feel like an old shoe. I say go for it.

Since I knocked down a couple geese last season, I'm a true believer of 3's for geese. My semi auto shotgun will be a max4 mka 1919 in the future.

My 935 cycles the Lightning Steel 7/8 and 1 oz loads if they are going 1550 fps or faster. Also they run 100 fps faster in the 935. To prevent blow by with RSI shotcups I use the MM, B & P and VP shotcups in the 935 loads. Never had a problem with mine. Ned S

It's not a very refined firearm. To me it feels "plankish". I guess it a matter of fit and feel. I really like a livelier handling gun. I only shot one on one day and I felt slower and didn't hit well with it. You my like the fit.

Loaned my 935 (reserve) to my son while up in Canada last year after his Beretta 390 stopped ejecting. He shot the 935 for 3 days killing limits of ducks and Canada's every day. Never missed a lick! No problem! As Jon/Ned says, only drawback, you must shoot any 2 3/4 inch shells at 1550fps or faster to have it eject properly. Most any factory 3" will cycle with no problem and it will "keep on ticking". I'm sure I could fiddle with the gas ports and eliminate the "low brass"/light load problem but might screw up something else. I just shoot 2 3/4 steel reloads at around 1600+ fps. (RSI #65)in the '35.

the 935 was built for duck hunting not trap.. the 10 gauge bbl on it really performs with the bigger sized shot and works just as good with smaller size shot. there is absolutly nothing wrong with them. good price ect. but they need some pressure gas flow to operate the action. the 835 is good gun also they pattern so much better than alot of guns with there factory tubes , there is no need to get aftermarket tubes for them.

if it fits you right and fills like an extension of your hands go for it you will not be disipointed. i absolutly will not go to duck blind without one of the over bore guns(835 or 935). I usually bring 2 guns if not 3 just in case one gets sand in the action. i have 1 gun with duck loads and the other with goose loads. works for me. i have 935 from very first ones that was on the market. i have 1000 rounds of steel maybe more through mine clean it and it will not fail. well atleast mine is that way.

I have to agree.
Last year, I had decided to buy one, just to see how it performs in the blind. I handled one at Wal-Mart and it did indeed feel like a 2X6 board; clumsy and awkward in my hands. My thought at the time was, "I don't care if it works perfectly, I can't shoot this gun effectively." So, I didn't buy it.
Perhaps my Berettas and Brownings have spoiled me.....

Ned Swygard account is no longer around. Either got it locked out or disabled it, I would bet the latter.

I have searched and searched for his theory about the 935 shooting faster, but all I can ever find is his posts on different websites saying the same thing. No solid proof.

Ned Swygard (or Jon Bergren, whichever it is), do you do marketing for Mossberg shotguns?

I checked the velocity of several 2 3/4 loads (Lightning Steel recipes) and they were running about 100 fps faster. Also RSI 75 was running 1640 fps in it with the MM shotcup which I used because of blowby. The 935 gun with the 10 gage barrel develops the same pressures as a 12 gage barrel therefore the force on the 935 ejecta is 24% greater than on a standard barrel thus increasing the velocity. I don't really care if you believe this or not. They also outpattern any other gun except the Hasting barrels which I also have for my 1100's. Others have reported the same on the velocity of the 935. Another advantage of the 935 is that SAAMI allows 14,500 psi ammo to be shot thru it beings it's a 3 1/2 incher.

I have yet to find one of the others you mention, it always comes back to your screen name on different websites.

Got a link to anyone else who says the same thing as you?

I guess that is pretty convenient. I have seen your posts on other forums through a simple Google search saying the same thing, but you cannot post any proof.


How much does Mossberg pay you a year?

You ask what's so bad about it? I give you my answer in detail from experience and you get defensive. If you don't want an answer don't ask a question. BTW, I'm 6' 4" 200 pounds, though not nearly 84, and it still feels awkward and plankish to me.
