Long story short...had a break in and all guns were stolen including an ulti-mag (20 years old) and a Winchester 1200 older than that. Decided to pick up two 835's to replace them as i had no issues with the old 835. Didn't get to hunt last year and only put 5 or 6 boxes through each last year skeet shooting. Took one out today to burn through a cheap box of 7-1/2's because I needed the brass for a project. After 20 rounds the forend broke off of the two slides. The little pins that hold them into the forend pulled out and broke part of the forend. I'm assuming I could call mossberg and get this taken care of but i do not want to replace with same inferior parts and have the same issue. Anyone else run into this issue or have suggestions for a stronger upgrade?
