Semi-Auto.....Options

Postby BHC » March 18th, 2013, 5:06 pm

I'm in no rush to purchase and willing to even purchase used. Looking for a 12ga. semi-auto, 3.5" chamber, nothing expensive as this will be used at times for turkey only. I know almost all the the gun makers make what I'm looking for, Browning, & Benelli are great but expensive for what I need it for. So what do you guys say? I have two Remington 11-87's 12ga & 20ga slug guns 3" chambers.

Have you looked in the Winchester SX3? They only cost about $850 which is quite cheaper than some of the others on the market. I have one and wouldn't trade it for anything.

Researched the Winchester SX3 seems to be very much like the Browning, and cheaper

I looked into both the Browning and Winchester and they seem to be the same shotgun for the most part. But being that I have a great turkey shotgun (pump) I just want to get a semi-auto for turkey, I can't see spending that amount of money for a shotgun I will use once in a while.

With that said, how good is the Mossberg 935 turkey shotgun?

The 935 is an excellent shotgun. I've had one for a while and it works great. It's a little muzzle heavy and a little heavy overall but other than that, it's a great gun.

Has the Mossberg 935 improved over the years? Seems the problems I have read have been dated from a few years ago

If you have a 11-87, then just buy a barrel for your gun. You'd have what you need for a lot less cost. A 3" will kill just as many birds as a 3.5 will.

I remember reading of some problems years ago but I've not seen any negative comments about performace in quite some time. I really like the one that I have. Mine will even cycle 2.75" shells reliably. Other than being a bit heavy as I noted, it's one you may want to consider.

If you were looking at a 3" self-loader, I'd recommend you take a look at the Mossberg 930. It's a lot of gun for the money and it's also very quick.

Thanks,
