Mossberg® 935 Magnum™ Waterfowl Shotgun - Black
Solid American made auto
After owning a Mossberg 500 for years, I've became a big fan of their durability. I wanted an auto loader for waterfowl, so naturally I went with Mossberg. I've had zero problems with it and it patterns great. I also use this for turkey hunting, and is nasty when coupled with a Redhead Blackout turkey choke & Winchester Longboards 3.5" #6's. The 2 biggest complaints people talk about on the 935 are both operator error. If it doesn't cycle properly when new, you need to disassemble it and clean it with brake parts cleaner to strip off the packing grease/coating. Then LIGHTLY oil it with Breakfree CLP and it will function flawlessy. Also this shotgun is NOT designed to cycle 2 3/4" loads, but some will. If you want to shoot 2 3/4", buy the 930 instead of the 935.

Great Gun,Great Value
I purchased my 935 in 2008. It gave me some headaches during the breaking in process(50-75 rounds), but its been great ever since. My gun feeds all 2 3/4" shells as well, including light target loads, which is a bonus. The only shells that give me issues are 3 1/2" Remington Hypersonics. The hulls of the Hypersonics are about 1/8"- 1/4" longer once fired then other 3 1/2" brands such as Winchester, Federal and Kent. That little extra length in the spent hull is just enough to cause hang up upon ejection. I also recommend using Breakfree CLP oil on the 935 as it seems to like this oil over other brands, especially in colder weather. In my opinion, there isnt a better semi auto turkey gun then the Mossberg 935. The shot patterns produced by the overbored barrel are best I've seen in any price range. Great gun overall, and great value.

works for me
I got a 935 when they first came out 2004, yes it doesn't shoot 2 3/4 very well but I use 3" so that's a mute point. I've put it thru its paces between socal & MO water fowling.

Good gun, but...
I bought this gun right after Christmas and I liked it a lot. I wanted a change of pace and just barely had enough cash for this, which I was fine with. I own a few Mossbergs and never had a problem. But the ejection system in the shotgun is terrible. It ejects them so slowly, the weapon jams every other shot. I got fed up with fixing the jam constantly and now the gun is mounted on my wall as a decoration.
