Agreed. The Maverick has a different safety than a 500, cross bolt type, and the fore end cannot be easily replaced. The price isn't a rip off, but the Hawk 982 is to me, a much better gun, as is a 500.

But... But... The Maverick rattles so much better.

INVEST another $15 and get the Hawk 981 ($198 from Buds) and you'll be a lot happier. Another $15 will get you the 982 with fantastic GRS.
With a $15 Vang Comp Big Dome Safety, you'll never shy away from another 870 behind-the-trigger cross bolt safety again. And all the 870 aftermarket shit fits the Hawk.

I bought a used one at lgs for about $120 then used in a trade up a couple years later with cash on my half for a polytech.

Does anyone even sell the 982 anymore? I haven't seen any in a while, although the 981's seem plentiful.

I would consider That. My favorite style stock plus the rifle sites. Room for a mag extension too.

What you think about Emperor mxp12 pump?
https://www.kygunco.com/Product/View?ItemNo=128590
Looks like an 870 receiver. I wonder if 870 parts will fit. Certainly inexpensive enough not to care too much though as long as it goes boom.

Honestly, $138.71 sale retail for a SD shotgun, that I'm gonna stake mine and my loved ones lives on, scares the $hit out of me...
Buy the fn proven Hawk!

Saw a 20 gauge Pardner Pump in an empty LGS for $175 just last week... 22" with removable choke.

What do you guys think about this Maverick 88 with folding stock for $199 shipped? Already have a 500 and a Shockwave, but thought this might be a good addition. Should I grab another Mossberg at that price?
