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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
