Which one would you choose and why?

I will be using this as a waterfowl gun. I want a gun that can cycle and shoot 3 1/2" shells with no problem. I know no gun is perfect, but what is your opinion and WHY?

11-87 for this reason. You may want to use light loads at some point. The 935 just doesn't like light loads. My 11-87 will eat them all day. The 11-87 holds its value much better.

Good suggestion, however, I have a Mossy 500 for light loads. Any reason to choose one over the other as far as functionability goes? Or is it basically a "down the road value" issue?

Honestly it's a small point, but I like the safety positioned on top of the Mossberg so it's easy to operate with your thumb. It just feels more natural to push the selector forward to fire.

Of the two, Mossberg 935.

But, I like the Mossberg 930 better....but, I don't shoot 3-1/2" shells anymore...they hurt too much!!

My 935 says right on the barrel 3 or 3.5 inch only.
That being said, it shoots game loads reliably all day long and has been dead reliable with the big stuff.

935-------Highly recommended

The Remington no question because they point and swing better.

Please explain to me how a gun can point and swing better than another gun besides being personal preference...

I am looking more at reliability than anything. That being said, what's your thoughts?

Not for me they don't.

Definitely the 1187P.

1187P, it is a better gun just all around. I prefure it more and it is a great weapon, the after runner of the model 11, which was a copy of the A-5 :cool:
