For those of you that have mentioned the Stoeger's have you had any issues with them? Another thing is I have to buy this at a local gun shop because I have $300 in gift cards to it, so the Bass Pro and other sales are out. This place is basically MSRP on their guns and do not have many used guns.

Anyone have a Mossberg 835 or 935 and care to comment?

Thanks
BJ

eh, Mossbergs aren't bad shotguns, it's just that anything that you get after that like Remington or Benelli is usually considered an upgrade. Did they have any Stoegers? I think a few people commented on how affordable and good they were? If I were you though, and I'm not, I would look to see if they have a Benelli Nova.

Beneli Nova are a pump, not a semi. The Stoger 2000 is made by Beneli and has their inertia system in it. I have never owned one, but I have shot them and I have several friends that shoot them with zero issues.

I've had zero problems with my Stoeger and I don't baby it at all. You'll be happy with it and save $180. I'd use $60 of that money to put a nice Turkey sight on it. I like the Tru-Glo Universal Turkey sight with the rear ghost ring. Excellent site for the money.

I prefer the mossburg 930. It has been pretty dependable and has a nice action.

Thanks for the input so far. I looked at a Stoeger and a Benelli side by side today and the guns are almost identical except for the actions are made of different metals and the Benelli's was polished. I may go this route as I used a friends Benelli to hunt turkey this past year and it seemed to be a fine gun. They didn't have a Mossberg Auto in stock as someone had come in and bought both of the ones they had yesterday, so I am going to wait to look at one of them and make my decision.

The Stoeger is a fine semi auto as is the Charles Daly semi auto both offered in camo. Try a Gun Show in your area you can usually pick up a pretty good deal on a New or Used semi .
GOOD LUCK !!

A few years back I went to buy a Mossberg 935, but couldn't put the Benelli Super Black Eagle down, so I pissed my wife off and spent an extra $500...

Either the Moss or a tried and true Rem Wing Master, which can double a canoe oar their built so good!
