I'd pick the 870 over the 535. But I'd probably pick a BPS over both of them.

Not sure I see the difference betwen the 535 and 835. I had an 835 and have an 870 and the 870 is just a better pump shotgun than anything Mossberg makes, now that's just my personal opinion and experiences with both guns. My brother is still shooting and hunting with a 870 Wingmaster that was bought new around 1955 and so far he has replaced a firing pin and that is the only issue in all those years and it has had 10's of 1,000's of shells shot through it.

I like a pump for its reliability and ease of handing all sorts of shot shell loads.I have aNova, full cammo finished shotgunin 12 ga. that handles 2 3/4" to 3.5" shells. It has worked flawlessley. Doves, geese, ducks and turkey. As shot guns go, this is not an expensive gun. Around here about $350 US.I have owned Remiongton Wingmasters, a Ithaca Model 37 and a Browning BPS. Each of these worked great too.
