    Just picked up this 835 with mossy oak camo from a pawn shop for $160. What a deal. Tried to tell the wife that I practically stole it for that price but she was not a bit impressed. Gun lovin' husband's burden .
    Just need to find a mossy cantilevered slug barrel and she will be perfect.

    KMANN, Welcome to Mossberg Owners from E TN.

    I don't know exactly what the max pic size is, but from one of my phones I have to edit them in a photo app to get them to fit. The older phone seems to fit OK. Maybe one of the admins will drop in w/ some advice.

    BTW, I had a system way back in the late '90s when I started buying guns and their food for fun. I always made a deposit in a "matching" account of the price. So if I spent $2500 on my junk and anybody complained, I could say, "Hey, I only spent half of what I could have. Here is what I didn't spend." It made a nice booty at the end of the years. [... and I never had any complaints from the gal who will be with me 50 years next week.]

    Welcome from MI!!

    I bought a 835 for the same price a few years ago and it was in such sad shape it required a complete makeover. I'd say you got a great deal on that gun.

    Thanks for the pics.

    Considering getting the 835 combo, with the deer / turkey barrels. other than than being a little heavier, is there any real difference between them and the 535? Does Mossberg even make those anymore?

    I,have limited input that years back bought wife brand new 535 turkey thug , she fired once 1 uno time, said make this go away. She is a seasoned shotgunner and,hunter. Simply hated it for heavy loads, I,believe the 835 much beefier better suited for deer/turkey type ammo. Ymmv of,course

    Thank you. from what I was seeing online in stores, it's only about a $50 difference anyway. Sounds like it'll be well worth it. Can't wait for next fall.
