Do some research before you buy it. There was a recall on the .35 Whelens due to misfires. I think they even stopped making them for a while. The problem is that a single-shot headspaces off the shoulder and the .35 Whelen has a VERY tiny shoulder. Therefore, it is easy for the headspace to be off in a break-open Whelen.
That was several years ago.

They learned their lesson the hard way, and have corrected the issue.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
