Default Mossberg 835 vs 535

I have been trying to figure out the difference in these two guns. They are both the thumbhole models and they look identical other than the foregrip. The 835 is $100 more I believe. If anyone knows the differnces in them I would appreciate the info.

Get the 835...The barrel is overbored to 10 gauge...My buddy has one and it throws a great pattern out to 50 yards with the Winchester Supreme 3 1/2 inch shells...It also does well with the Federal Premium 2 oz turkey loads, he used number 5s in both...

When you fire it, hang on!!! And wear your ear plugs!!!

Main differences....
835 is overbord, as nchawkeye said.
835 comes in synthetic and laminate camo (both synthetic and laminate is camo)
835 in laminate camo is a heavier gun that 835 in synthetic camo


535 is synthetic camo only (not laminate camo)
535 is not overbored.
535 rear sight is different than 835. (both have adjustable sights, but 535 is different)

I sholdered both guns and looked at the difference this weekend and Basspro. Ended up buying the 835 thumbhole laminate camo because less forend noise and it was a little heavier. Makes recoil a bit easier.

I brought my 835 11 years ago, and I use it for turkey only, and I woudn't trade it in, and like nchawkeye stated it patterns great out to 50 yards with the Winchester Supremes 3.5" #5

Barry...I just called my buddy, he bought the gun used and doesn't know what choke it has, it was in it when he bought it...He checked it this past weekend and says there are 15 pellets in the vitals on a HS Strutt turkey target and that it was 50 yards....He is assuming it was the choke that came with the gun when sold new...

My 835 came with various chokes, including the extra full turkey choke, that is what I use and it is great

Bassprotold me over the phone today that the 835 is $460 and the 535 is $300. I figure I should spend the money and get the better of the two. I may just wait till later in the year to pick one up. I plan on picking up a Bowtech General in the next few weeks...well when ever they get another one in. If I also buy a new gun my wife may shoot me with it. Thanks for all your inputs

I have 2 835's and they are great. My main turkey gun is a camo 835 with tri-viz sights and a mossberg x-full choke. It shoots win 3 1/2" 2 1/4 oz 4's real good. It patterns incredibly well. I've taken quite a few turkeys with it. 2 of them at extreme ranges (won't say how far)(not bragging, condoning, or encouraging). It just happened that way.
