Maverick 88 vs Hawk 982

i wanted some opinions on these 2 shotguns. i am getting it for christmas and its my first shotgun.
Maverick 88
( 42628 - 12 Gauge Maverick Model 88 Security Pump Action Shotgun 3" Chamber 20" Barrel 8 Rounds Black Synthetic Stock Blued Barrel )
Hawk 982
( Interstate Arms Black Synthetic 12 Ga Defender w/18.5" Barre $198.00 SHIPS FREE )

this would mainly be a HD shotgun but with some interspersed clay shooting and deer hunting. probably wont shoot slugs past 100-150 yds.

maverick has 7+1 shot already. Hawk has 5+1 but i could get a 870 extension. i want a side saddle on my shotgun but maverick hits the shellholder and cant be exchanges with 500 forend. hawk takes all 870 parts but barrel( rumour is you can if you move the barrel ring. any ideas?) my budget is $200-$300 but would like some accesories as well. any thoughts are appreciated

Get the Maverick over the Chicom 870 clone.

^^^^ THIS!

A Maverick 88 is a fine weapon and has a great price point. I'm thinking of picking up another one just because they are so cheap!

It's hard to go wrong with the 88...I don't remember even one negative about them.

Mine has been USED and still a fine gun, and the crossbar safety is my favorite

My Maverick has been aweosme. I've had it for about 15 years. Only thing I wish I could find is an oversized safety, similar to the ones available for the Rem 870.

I have the 5+1 and it's light and fast. If I got another, the 7+1 might be my choice, even though it's 2" longer and heavier. Would be hard to decide!

Im a bit biased, because I own a Mav 88, but I would go with the Maverick 88 over new production Remmy 88.

yeah i am pretty much decided on the maverick 88. i would like to put a side saddle shell carrier on but the stock forend interferes. mossberg 500 forend doesnt fit without me getting the whole assembly. how hard would it be to trim the forend and how bad would it look? thanks

check on shotgunworld.com. there are people regularly looking to get rid of their maverick foreend for a mossberg 500 foreend.
There are also a few threads on where people have trimmed for clearance.
changing them isn't hard, just remove the detent pin to remove your trigger group, there is a carrier end there that connects the bolt to the fore arm rods. then the foreend slides out. You may also check brownelles or natchez for a maverick security model forend. they are smaller and have the action bars molded into the forend instead of riveted to the inner tube of the fore end.
