Each and every component of the 835 was designed and tested around the demanding requirements of high-power 3 1/2" 12 gauge magnum ammo.
Unlike other new-comers to this specialized market, who just modified their existing 2 3/4" - 3" shotguns, the 835 was designed to stay the course.
The robust bolt, receiver, and other components are specifically sized for the longer shells and the downrange punishment they dish out.
