    Havent shot one yet but it does look like a nice gun. With that said i have owned alot of shotguns and I really like the mossberg 935 for turkey hunting and for the money. Hasnt yet to let me down and has never jammed. It has preformed just as good as other shot guns i have had that cost alot more.

    That pattern looks a little open to me. I shoot the kicks 660 in a maxius with 3" 2oz 5 shot and I get 4 or 5 tears around the neck and brain that a dime will slide through. Maybe that 2oz is blowing through the lighter 6. Not to say that pattern wont kill a turkey, but thats what I want for Pheasants out west.

    Just wanted to write a follow up on the Remington v3. Well it did shoot good but after 10 shells all 3 inch I noticed big dents in brass where the ejector was hitting it took about a month calling and talking to Remington before we agreed to send back for repair . There customer service is bad. They suck. Got back today gun is better but still has dent small but noticeable. Received gun back in a cardboard box not ariginal with a dent in rear stock .not happy at all .talked to Remington again they said and I quote sorry we can't do any more we think the gun is fixed.i will never buy another Remington again.i also know another person having same problems with his v3 he has called and talked to them don't know there response I'm curious.

    Not knocking your gun at all but I've heard a lot of stories like yours over the past few years about Remington. If I were still a Remington man, I think I'd only be interested in buying older used guns. They just seem to have went down hill.
