Mossy 835

I just picked up an 835 with a ported barrel and I already have one with an un ported barrel. I've been told the ported ones are less desireable. Any truth to that?

Alrighty then!

Re: Mossy 835

i think my ported 835 seems a little less punishing on the shoulder than my un ported. the ports dont really bother my ears in the field like i thought they would either

Re: Mossy 835

Porting a barrel helps with muzzle jump, so you can get back on target quicker for the second shot.
It does nothing for recoil.

Re: Mossy 835

OK, granted, but does it effect pattern?

Alrighty then!

Re: Mossy 835

I have used my ported one for a few years and have had great success on geese with it. Have not used for anything else.

Re: Mossy 835

Pattern not effected at all
A lot of clays (sporting) guns have ported barrels.
All it does is give the gasses somewhere to go so the barrel don't jump as far.

Ported or nonported, they still kick like a mule.

Re: Mossy 835

The recoil from the 3.5" shells helps me cycle the pump faster.
