This product is poor in Quality and I would not recommed it to anyone. I bought the 835 Ulti-mag about 3 or 4 years ago, I wanted the ultimate pump gun for waterfowling. I read about the features each pump had on the market at that time. The 835 seemed to offer the most(ported barrel, twin sight beads,3.5inch,mossy oak shadow grass etc.. So I ordered one without actually seeing it in person (mistake). It does looks good, but is poorly balanced compared to the 870s I,ve used. The action isn't nearly as smooth as 870's BPS or Winchester. My 835 Ulti-junk failed to cycle shells after the first month or two. It had a 10 year warranty so I sent it away, only to come back still unusable, so I sent it back again, I got it back and it has worked Ok for the last 2 years, but the parts feel pretty cheap and the action is sloppy and not nearly as good as probably any other pump on the market. I would like to trade my 835 for an 870 rem or Benelli nova. - both of these are much better !
