i have the 870 SM and have shot the 835. I would say the 835 is a bit worse no doubt but either way the 3.5 WILL put a hurting on you. I no longer really pattern my 870 due to that. I however dont notice it a bit when aimed at a bird.

i to am the tall lanky type 6'3 175lbs. The Moss 935 however is what i am looking to get now instead of my 870. I love the 870 alot more then the 835 but just want an auto now.

REN,

I have a 935 and with that Auto you seriously never fell the kick....I guess it takes so much out with it having to eject the shell also???

yeah i really like them, i just have to find one thats not $550! If i invest in a new shotgun I want the camo one so that jacks up the price.

I bought a 535 several years ago and it kicked like a freakin' mule. I went back to my old 835 and put a limbsaver recoil pad on it. You still know she's there when you shoot the 3 1/2's but the recoil pad definitely helps.

i shoot an 835, one of my buds likes the 870; both shoot 3.5" shells. I can't tell any difference in the kick. To reduce the kick if you have a hollow stock you can fill it with something heavy (which makes the gun harder to carry), put a knox kick reducing stock on it which cost $100+, or put a better recoil pad on it $35.

I have the ATI tactical adjustable stock on mine with the cheap AK style buttpad that comes with the stock. Yes it kicks hard. When you put alot of powder behind alot of lead you get alot of kick. Thats just the way it is. If you can't take the kick get an auto or step back down to a smaller gun.

I wiegh about 160 and sometimes which ever foot is in front when i shoot comes off the ground. I think I've heard something like 65 ft/lb of energy hits you when you pull the trigger on a 3.5" shell (i may be wrong on the 65 not sure where i heard it).
Can't help but grin when i shoot it. Really makes you feel like your doing something.
