DANG, That is the First I heard of that!
I've had mine since 1993 or 4 can't remember exactly which year I bought it.
Do know, my daughter was a baby, she was born in 93, so it was somewere in the 93-94 range.
Got it at a STEAL for $110.00 New. Store I bought it from had this thing called Register Roullette, would take a percent off your total at the end. Girl Rang it up wrong it gave me 10% off, she had to rering it! Gave me 50% off the second time around, I told her, You messed up this Time, To BAD!
I've beat the HECK out of mine, Dropped it in the mud WAY TO MANY TIMES, Dunked it in water and went back to hunting.
Only had 2 things go wrong with it.
95, it froze up on me in -10 weather in of all places South Carolina and 96 yet again in South Carolina was hunting deer with it from a Tree Stand, the Foot part of the Climber fell while I was 30 feet in a Tree and I had to Drop My Gun to a guy so I could hug a Tree to get down. He MISSED it and The Slide got Broke. Had to have my cousin who is a Gun Smith fix it for me.
Those are the only 2 things that went wrong with it (Knock on Wood)
I've been hearing some bad reports about the 935. Would like 1 but need to see what they do with them and the little problems they are having!
Our youth are the Back Bone to hunting of the Future. Teach them WELL!
