mossberg 935 auto

5 posts in this topic

Doe's any one own or hunt with someone who has a mossberg 935? What do you think of the gun? I am looking at buying one. Pros and cons, Also looking at a used one from gander or some place else. What should I look for? I know that the majority of you like the 3 B's. But I only have about $500. to spend. I hope you will help out! I know that there aren't a lot veiwing this time of year but I think about waterfoul hunting 365.

I would look into a Stoeger M2000. I have shot both the 935 and the M2000 and I like the stoeger alot better. It is modeled after a Benelli M2. I work at Gander and we have the plain black M2000 for 430 bucks. My buddy had a 935 and every 3rd shot or so it would not shoot, just click of the trigger.

I have a 935. Mine has never missed a beat. But I would look hard at the Stoeger. The Moosburg is a tank. I like it, but its heavy. Only complaint.

I'm on my 3rd season with the 935. For me it has been a fine firearm. I have had no issues with 3 or 3 1/2 steel shot loads. However it is a single shot with 2 3/4 loads. The manual states to use 3 or 3 1/2 loads as it was not designed to handle light loads. It was designed for heaver waterfowl and turkey loads not for upland game.

I would personally use a mossberg for a paddle go with the stoeger atleast. Have you looked at the Franchi I 12 its the next cost bracket but I have heard its worth it. $600.00 and thier is always used guns to look at also.

    • The name of the lake is long. It's between hawick and new London off hwy 23. East of Willmar. It's pretty clear water so your best bet  with eyes is early or late. Actually catch more eyes by accident fishin panfish.
    •   Not sure how the wife will like it, but it's kind of fun roughing it.  I know the area is pretty good for Bear's and Wolves!  And we do get a few Deer once in a while. The nice thing about being so far in, is the bait piles you can make! 
    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
