    These are both the cheaper versions from the originals so what would be the best HD Shotty that I can add cool stuff to? I have the option of getting a new Maverick 88 for $249.00, a Hawk 982 for $199.00 or a used Remington 870 for $200.00?

  3. Depends on what brand you prefure, I like Mossbergs better and I Own a Mav 88 and can tell you that I would trust my life with it. Almost 9 years I have owned it and not a problum. The 870 is a good gun but I like the Mossbergs better.

    Maverick 88 All the way. With the Mav 88 you have access to pretty much all the same stuff that goes on to a Mossberg 500.

    if your wanting a h/d shotty i would say the 88 is the way to go esp if your wanting to dress it up a little

    I'm with most on this. the mav88 and the 870 have a bigger after market. the 870 has a slicker action. I'm a mossberg guy, tang safety and slide actuator more comfortable. but I would not worry about a used 870 as long as you check it out, the're great guns.
