A 935 with feed issues is easily explained... That is a 3 1/2 inch gun so the lightest 2 3/4 shells should be a bit wimpy considering it has to handle full power heavy 3.5's...

Now, Hogdogs, I have a Beretta A400 Xplor Unico - also a 3.5" gas gun. It not only handles the standard promo stuff from wally world, it also handles my 12 gauge 3/4 oz reloads - those are 28 gauge level - NEVER an issue

Your Beretta is related to Mossberg how??? But the 3.5 935 is a different gun than the 930... A guy looking for a "soft shooter" will not be shopping much for the "turkey/goose" gun needing a 3.5 inch capability...

He is still going over options, but I think he has a good handle on what to look for now.

I'm in the minority here, as I absolutely despise my 1100 skeet model... Even though I shoot it well, its an unreliable POS even when perfectly clean and fed Winchester AA factory loads... The carrier fractured on the thing after only 1500 rounds of 3 dram target loads... I've let other 1100 fanatics go through the gun and shoot it with the same results... Only reason I hold onto it, is that it was given to me by my Grandfather...

I won't condemn the 1100 as I have friends that love their 1100s and they give them no trouble at all and shoot great... Mine is possessed...

The Beretta autos are very soft shooting and very reliable.. The A400 is an excellent gun as are the older 390/391 series...
