i agree. i don't like the way the bolt is on the super mag. the way it has that "dust cover" thing at the back. i guess it is a 3in bolt adapted to shot 3.5. if i was to buy a 870 i would get a 3in one like the wing master. nice gun. if i was buying to shot mostly 3.5 hands down i would go with the 835.overall i think the 870 is probably the better gun. Mossy built the 835 specifically for for big shells. the 870 is just a nicer all around shooter. if you plan on shooting a lot of 2.75 or 3 inch stuff, i wouldn't even consider the 835. if you are planning on shooting 3.5 inch stuff ALOT. then the 835 is probably what you want.
