feedback on tactical 835

Postby steve284 » March 30th, 2009, 10:22 am

I'm interested in buying tactical 835, would like pros and cons. I like the adjustable stock ( I have short arm syndrome). I'm a little concerned about the 20' barrel but I like the compact size.

I am no expert so take this for what it is worth I would say that the Pros would be adjustable stock for a better fit especially when slumped against a tree. Shorter barrel length will provide better maneuverability in close quarters. Less weight will mean less fatigue when holding gun for long periods of time or when packing the gun from location to location.
Cons. I think would be patterns that are not as tight and slightly slower velocities than longer barreled guns and less weight will equal more felt recoil.

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.

i've used one for the last 2/3 years,it is very manueverable in tight quarters,it is light,& the adjustable stock can come in handy when sitting on a slope or something...the 20 inch barrel is fine for me,it gets the job done..but i am kinda tired of the pistol sux for fall wing shots..& kicks like no takin the remington on tuesday
