Mossburg 935 cycling and jamming

Postby clymerfowler » Sun Aug 25, 2013 9:22 am

my friend just bought a 935 for geese and it will only cycle heavy 3 inch turkey loads. 3 inch steel doesn't cycle, 3 1/4 steel doesn't cycle (it jams), and nothing else cycles through the gun. it wont even eject anything but heavy federal turkey loads in 3 inch.

Sounds like a perfectly operation 935 to me.

as much as it hurts the pocket book they do require a bit of brake in. I had to shoot 3.5s for about 5 or 6 boxes before it would shoot 3"'s. After two season of duck loads it cycled everything down to light weight trap and skeet loads. It is handy to have friends that are willing to shoot it, takes some of the beating off the persons shoulder.

I could be wrong, but I believe it is a "waterfowl" gun. On the barrell, it should say that it will shoot 3 and 3.5 shells. It wasn't made to cycle the light loads. As already stated, shoot it a ton with heavy loads and hope for the best.

Move the bolt slowly to the locking position where the bolt locks up with the barrel. If it does not lock up it is not broken in. Ned S

Send it back and get a quality gun. Those 935's are far from being a quality auto.

The 935 is an excellent gun. I have had no problems with mine. It's been flawless. Just don't use Rem Oil on it. I now use Hoppes the same Lube my Father and I used when I was a kid. It gives better patterns than any other gun I have except the 1100's with Hastings barrels. Ned S

I love my 935 and have had no problems after a thorough cleaning.
What makes if NOT a great gun, is lack of consistency with their manufacturing.
It shouldn't be that one guy had no problems and they other guy has a major headache.
I happen to end up on the right side of things.....

Clean it again, try what Ned said, then go get a box of nitro 3.5's and break your shoulder.
Clean it again and you'll be fine

You can expedite the break in if it doesn't lock up when you move the bolt slowly. Hone off the end of the barrel going into the magazine until it locks up with the bolt going slow to lock up. I did mine this way. Ned S
