Thinking about 'building' a mossberg 835

I already have a forearm and stock, and a barrel, and am just thinking about filling in that empty space in between. I saw an empty receiver buy it now for $95, overpriced imo, and a complete trigger setup for $46. Also saw the magazine spring for $3. Which basically leaves the odds and ends like mag tube, bolt setup, mag tube nut, slide action assembly, etc up for grabs.

Could i do this for less than $200 or should i just sell off what i already have?

based on the research i did to re-do my 500, I would just sell it unless you are willing to buy used parts. If you are looking at brand new parts, it wont be worth it.

For those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles..

You can find used 835's for $300 pretty often.

Alrighty then!

Yea i have my eye on a couple on gunbroker, even though only the pretty well worn looking ones go for under $300. Trying to piece together what i have because if i buy another 835 and try to sell the excess stuff my wife would hear 'bought another gun' and beat me up
