I just bought one the other day and I love it. The stock is fully adjustable which is real nice. I took the choke that comes with it out and threw in a Comp-N-Choke XXXfull .670 and shot Winchester 3.5's 2 1/4 oz #5's thru it and it patterned absolutely destructive from 25-40yds! Judging from the pattern it threw at 40yds you will have no problem shooting past that if you desire. I feel sorry for the first ole boy and many thereafter who get in front of this gun because if they are out there 20-50 yds he is toast! It is classic Mossberg and they hit it out of the ball park with this firearm!! I have owned the old school 835, the 935 (my duck gun) and now this one and this gun in my opinion is great. If you have the sand to shoot the 3.5" out of it you will feel the recoil but you will feel that with any gun. It comes with the tru glo sights and a padded sling. I took the shell holder off the stock because I dont plan on using that. All the shots I took were sitting up against a tree and the gun is very light and extremely controlable with the overall length, weight and pistol grip. Im really happy with the overall design of the gun and extremely happy with its shooting performance. This gun with the current choke and round I am using is the best shooting turkey gun I have observed, shot or owned.
