Been thinking about selling my 835 and buying an automatic. This would be set up for nothing but turkeys. Other than a Benelli SBE what should I look at without breaking the bank? Not sure I'm going to do it but toying with the idea.

Stoeger M2000.

Very similar to benellis but considerably less $$. I almost got one myself to do the same thing, but decided to go with an O/U instead.

If you like features of your 835, go with a 935

While a Mossberg autoloader may not be in the same league as a Benelli, many shooters are finding they get better patterns from the Mossberg 835 and 935 because these particular Mossbergs are over-bored with 10 gauge barrels, more gentle constriction resulting in less pellet deformation.

Some things I like about most any auto-loader over any pump action is that autoloaders are generally "quieter" to carry (no rattling action), and less recoil.

Just to add another thought, don't discount the possibility of going to a 20 gauge autoloader dedicated turkey gun. With the right heavier-than-lead shells, today's 20 ga turkey guns are much more potent than most 12 gauges using lead shot, and much more enjoyable to shoot & carry.

Stoeger M2000, M3000 or M3500. All great guns at a good price! i am a benelli guy though without question. I own both the 2000 and 3500 and they are wicked on turkeys and ducks.

Id really recommend looking at a Win SX3. They are great! Light and easy to carry plus they are overbored and have the Inv + choke system that throws a wicked pattern! You can get the black one for 850-899

^^This. I went from a 835 to 935 and don't regret it one bit.

My son loves his Stoeger auto. It throws a great pattern and is fairly light on the wallet .
