Because i wanted a semi really bad, and I went to get the weatherby sa-08 and they didnt have it. So the only one that i knew of was the mossberg. i started using it and it jammed constantly. so i sent it in and i was working alot at the time so i had money to buy the stoeger. I never regreted buy it. selling the 935 now and i have a buyer lined up.
Why not buy a used semi?
I dont know who the owner of the gun did with it. they could have dropped it in a lake and not cleaned it properly for all i know. yes you can get a browning silver used for around 600 depending on where you find it. I found one but that one only took 3 1/2's. thats what it said on the barrel ONLY 3 1/2.
So if you dont have enough money for a high end semi and you dont want to buy used, the 3500 is where its at.
It comes with a recoil reducer, and 5 chokes. very versatility.
