How cheap is cheap?

On the manufacturing side: they're gas operated, which is a totally different action from the SBE, patented and known for reliability. SBE has a bunch of high-tech features; 935 is a basic wood, aluminum, and steel gun.

On the demand side: 935 is a specialized gun that shoots only specialized ammo: 3" or 3.5" only and prefers ammo made for its overbore barrel AFAIK.

WRT the X2... People love the X2, but I think Winchester charges a bit too much for it. Winchester's marketing problem with most of its guns was the price point, IMO. It steered me to other companies' products. Winchester O/U prices aren't at all bad for what they are, though I understand there have been problems.

What I have no idea about, here in San Diego, is how well various guns and designs would work in Wisconsin Winters. I won't venture to guess. :)
