We're waterfowlers, and those guns have been underwater in January and iced up and still worked, submerged in pond muck, laid down in muddy fields, etc and never a problem. Both are quality built firearms. Just see what feels best in your hands.
One word of warning, the SBE II's are REALLY light. That feels nice, but comes with a price. You WILL feel the effects of the magnum shells.
You aint kidding when you say "light". My boss has one just for sporting clays ( I know what a waste!!!) but that thing feels like a feather!!!
I don't even want to know what 3.5" mags feel like out of that..
I use the Mossberg 935, Great gun for the money. I only get out for geese about 5 times a year so I can't justify the the more high end autos...
I know the 935 feels like a tank compared to the SBE II...
