Just posted this in another forum. Buddy of mine runs a 3500 and has beat the living dog crap out of it. Just now having issues after 2 seasons of complete abuse and neglect. After that field trial, another buddy of mine picked one up. I plan on acquiring one in the offseason for a back up. For around $650, camo dipped. Can't really go wrong.
Probably will pick up an extra barrel, have a cantiliver scope mount installed and throw a Nikon turkey Pro scope on it. That way I can just swap barrels and maintain exact zero.
