Anyone know if a 590 barrel will work on a 835 receiver? I called Mossberg and all they would tell me is "that is not recommended, the 835 is a 3 1/2 receiver"
I realize that you can't shoot 3.5" shells in a 3" barrel. I just want to know if the barrel will fit and shoot 2 3/4" and 3" rounds.

Thanks

It depends on the length of the 590 barrel. Due to the length of the magazine tube on the 835, an 18.5" 590 barrel will fit, but a 20" barrel will not.......

I was looking for an 18.5" 590 barrel to go on my 835 when I got lucky and found an actual 18.5" 835 barrel with a 3-1/2" chamber on GunBroker for about $80.00. The Mossberg part number for the 18.5" 835 barrel is #90823 and you might be able to order it directly from them.

The 18.5" "Breacher" style barrel for the model 500 Tactical Cruiser will fit on an 835, but I am not sure what one of those cost....

This is my 835:

Thanks for that info mic214. I will be calling Mossberg Monday to inquire about that part number you provided.
