speaking from my personal experiences with the 835 UltiMag, i can say that you will have a hard time finding a better pump gun for the money. yeah, it's clunky, heavy, shoulders like a 4 foot section of 2x4, and will probably have some sort of mechanical issue or another at some time in it's life, but for 200 bucks..what do you want? i killed lots of ducks, grouse, quail, doves, and pheasants with it. it got beat up, dropped in the mud, dogs sleeping on it, anchors tossed on it, used for a paddle, and even saw duty as a walking stick once or twice. it rarely let me down.

i am picking up a stoeger condor supreme O/U 20ga with 28" barrels tomorrow. this will be the first stoeger that i have owned and am looking forward to it. i have picked up a few in gun stores and liked the feel. i hope it shoots as good as it looks.

i have shot a Benelli SBE on a sporting clay course. if the Stoeger 2000 operates as good as the SBE (they have the same internal components) then i would have to give a big thumbs up to that gun too.

I own 5 Mossberg's. A 410, 20 gauge and 3- 12 gauges. My 835 I have owned for 8 years now. I've hunted just about everything with it and have really beat it up. The ONLY problem I noticed, this past duck season, was that the second shell didn't want to load correctly after the first shot. I think I might be short stroking it trying to get off faster shots. I carry a folding stock 500 12 gauge with an 18 inch barrel in my patrol car every night, NEVER any problems with 00 buckshot and slugs. I just purchased the new 935, no problems as of yet.
I've heard good things about the Stoeger and I'm looking at buying a Condor over/under 20 gauge for the range. I think if you look hard enough you could find something you don't like and something you do like about ANY gun.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?

between the two i say mossberg all the way. my buddy has an 835 and it has been a solid gun.

yeah, it's hard to compare these two gunmakers because from what i can see, there really isn't any similarities. Stoeger's claim to fame is it's line of inexpensive doubles for those of us without a a spare 2000 bucks to lay down for a scatter gun...and it's semi auto with it's benelli mechanism.

Mossy's real namesake is either it's 500 or 835 pump guns. the new 935 auto is making a bit of a splash, but not much.

had troubles with mossberg. i like the looks of stoeger. huntmq1 sounds like your 500 12 gauge in your patrol car has seen some action. :eek:

now this is what i call an, "insightful gun review". i don't know how you managed it Cabelas Boy, but yes....mossbergs do go "poopy" from time to time. mine "pooped" it's ejector screw out of the blind and into 6 feet of water/marsh-muck...needless to say i wasn't happy.

As I've posted on other threads on this site, I've always carried Mossy's, hunting and working. I've never had one let me down. I love 'em.

HuntMQ1, bless you for what you do. It takes guts to get out there and face that kind danger. Don't you sweat it what people think or might think about your job. Experience is experience in my book. I won't pretend I know how it feels, and Lord help me I never wish to. The fact that you trust such a gun practically 24/7 speaks volumes. It's not a pretty picture for some to read/see/hear etc. but it is a fact of modern Life. The best turkey season to you too.
