I bought one about a month ago. Did a lil break in on the farm, seemed to recycle well even with light loads. Took it to the trap range and it broke clays. I haven't really owned it long enough to give you a full review but so far I like it and plan on using it this season. Hopefully those resident honks I been seeing driving to work keep going the same direction in the morning come september.

It is a really nice gun, especially for the money. I owned a 2000 (the older version of what you have) and it functioned really well. It cleaned up easily, and was bombproof in a blind.

I've put my 3500 through hell and back. Rain, snow, ice, and mud. 2 3/4, 3, 3 1/2 shot all in the same day without changing a thing. Probably the best bang for your buck you can get. It's not got all the bells and whistles as the top of the line guns but it will function with anything you throw at it.

Also don't break it in with the weight in the stock because it will dampen the recoil you will need to loosen the spring up.

I bought a m3500 the first year they came out. Have to agree best shotgun I own, cycles every time no matter what. Break in without weight shoot about 50 rounds then put weight in and never mess with weight again. Even when shooting really light reloads.

Bought mine when it came out. My break in was a round a sporting clays. Worked great and after a seasons use it worked even better. The only thing to watch for is if you use really light loads for clays you can sometimes have it not cycle, but it isn't designed to cycle really light loads anyway.

I love the gun and you should have many years of excellent use ahead of you.
