Semi bolt handle weight

I have a mossberg 935 and I wanted a larger tactical bolt handle. Not really for tactical use but something bigger to grab onto when hunting.

How much does weight play into the factor.
The stock one is 124 grains and the


Elite tactical one is 244 grains.


Haven't had a chance to shoot with it yet.

Most used load will be Winchester super x 1550 fps

437.5 grains in an ounce so the stock one is about a quarter ounce versus the tactical one weighs about a half ounce.

I don't think the tactical one is going to bog you down in the mud.

I wouldn't think that small amount of added weight would influence the operation of that 935 at all.

A 935 is gas operated and a magnum shotgun. Changing the op handle won't matter.
Mossberg sells a larger handle with a knurled knob for $21.05.

Keeping in mind that there's absolutely nothing remotely tactical about a bolt handle.

Good to know. Yeah the tactical this tactical that is to much these days. Not like there's a flashlight on it.
