My order shipped just over a week after it was placed; I picked up my shotgun from PCA on a Wednesday evening and thoroughly disassembled and cleaned it that night. I feared having to deal with a large quantity of cosmoline, but was pleasantly surprised by the simple light coat of packing grease that covered all metal components. I removed this grease, thoroughly cleaned the barrel with solvent and numerous patches, and applied RemOil to all surfaces. I paid particular attention to lubricating the action, and worked it numerous times to evenly distribute lubricant. I am very pleased with the smoothness of the 982's action; it does not feel gritty, sticky, or grating in any way, and cycles easily for follow-up shots.

The first time I fired my shotgun was at an abandoned surface mine myself and others frequent for plinking. We shot a box of cheap Estate birdshot through it, alternating between single loads and use of the five-round tube magazine. No problems were experienced aside from two FTEs by my shooting partner; I believe these were both caused by short-stroking, as this was her first experience with a pump shotgun and has not been repeated since. I do not believe this to have been due to an issue with the 982. Both FTEs were easily cleared by depressing the action release and working the action to eject the spent shells. We also fired five Remington Slugger 1oz rifled slugs in the same afternoon, two single-loaded and three magazine-fed. Recoil was a bit stiff but not unbearable with the slugs; the 982's recoil pad mitigates much of the recoil force. I do not believe that recoil would be a problem in a defensive shooting. With birdshot, recoil is quite mild.

The second time we took this shotgun out, we fired 25 rounds of Remington target shells, which were a bit difficult to load into the magazine, and left brass residue on the barrel extension. I will not be using these again, especially given that the Estate shells fed better for significant less cost per shell. I fired four rounds of Estate that same day, with none of these issues.

Some wear is apparent on the bolt, and the rear ghost-ring sight NEEDS to be Loctited down or it WILL fly off to parts unknown (to be found an hour later), but neither of these are severe problems. I rate this shotgun five stars!

I was reluctant on getting a Chinese clone of the 870, but too many good reviews let me know this was a solid workhorse. It really is a heavy 870 and I am a sucker for ghost sights. For the price could not resist and like the 870.. easy maintenance. Ate the target loads I put through it in the video without any issues, takes aftermarket crap for 870, but I thin I will leave it be. need a 5 1 that is reliable... can't go wrong with. It did, however, come with cosmoline and some debris, clean it good prior to range time.

I bought this Hawk 892 in October 2014. The shotgun is well made all metals (except the stock and forend of course). Fired about over 200 rounds (mixed with bird shots and slugs) with no issue at all. I replaced the stock with ATI pistol grip and magpul forend and it looks great. It is truly a 870 clone. I compared the 870 and Hawk 892 and I really like the Hawk 892 a lot better. And this gun is a lot cheaper than 870, the Ghost ring sight is much nicer (for the same compatible model). Thanks Buds for the "Great Service".

Buds shipped fast. Put all kinds of loads through it with no issues. When I first received it,the rear sites with loose ( two bolts ). A quick twist of the wrist and problem solved. This truly is a 870 knockoff ; great for the money. Already thinking of buying a second one. Thanks Buds !
