Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag Hunter .410 bore

We liked its solid feel, classic design, and 10-year warranty. Though we give the edge to the Benelli, this gun still rates a Buy recommendation.

Traditional in looks and performance, the back-bored, ported Mossberg was a solidly built, classically designed shotgun. We liked the top safety. The trigger guard was plastic, as were the trigger and safety button. The action was aluminum alloy, and there were two control rails from the forend to the bolt.
When the Mossberg's sliding safety is forward in the Fire position, a red dot appears.
The bolt is almost all the way back here. The shell lifting platform is still blocking the port, but it drops out of the way just before the bolt activates the magazine release. This permits a chambered round to be switched for a different type without letting the next round out of the magazine -- if you're careful.
