I was concerned about shipping damage based on other reviews. Checked my gun carefully, both front and rear sights had styrofoam on them to protect them. The box had damage where the rear sights would be, but the styro foam did its job. No damage to the gun and the finish looks great. Very pleased with the delivery condition of the gun.

These shotguns were out of stock everywhere for many months, and I anxiously waited to be able to order one. After reading so many good reviews about it, I was pretty excited when Bud's finally had them in stock again and I ordered mine right away. My disappointment was the condition the shotgun was in when I received it. When I picked the shotgun up from the FFL, I couldn't wait to take it home and, in my excitement, forgot to inspect it thoroughly BEFORE accepting delivery. That part was my fault. At home, I looked it over thoroughly and discovered that the rear sight had a corner chipped off and was also bent. The front sight was crooked and also had a chip on one corner. The finish had several scratches and there is a part where the fore-end assembly is connected that appears to have no finish on it at all. I can't believe someone would even allow the shotgun to be shipped out this way. Even for the low price and even though it is manufactured in China, this is not at all what I had expected. A real disappointing first purchase from Bud's. RESPONSE BY BUDS: We do not open or inspect any of the firearms that are shipped out. This is why we ask all customers to thoroughly inspect the firearm prior to taking transfer from the receiving dealer. As long as the firearm is left with the dealer we will pay to have the firearm shipped back where we can either send the customer a replacement or issue a refund. Once the firearm has been taken into possession we no longer have the ability to take the firearm back in order to return to the manufacturer/distributor for replacement of a new firearm thus becoming a warranty issue at that point.

Solid shotgun, especially love the ghost ring sights. Best purchase for home defense.

Shotgun arrived March 1rst, placed order on Feb. 18th! Eleven days to get it to me BUT since I paid by electronic check I SAVED over $10.00! So the 5 extra days for the $$$ to clear was not a big deal... on to the Shotgun! Although its listed as IA 12 Ga Defender its stamped with the name HAWK Model 982 and it is just as advertised, a well made Police/Security shotgun manufactured in Red China as a copy of the venerable Remington 870. It arrived in great condition (once I peeled the protective styrofoam off the front and rear sights) These was one DING on the rear sight, apparently in warehousing or shipping the box took a hit serious enough to remove some of the finish off the top of the rear sight, This was just cosmetic and is of no concern as I can touch it up with no problem. Action worked flawlessly and inspected carefully BEFORE accepting delivery. SHOOTING 25 rounds 12 gauge RIO 2 3/4 Game Loads (10 Rapidfire with 5 single round combat reloads.10 Slowfire for accuracy and ergonomics.) RESULTS=EXCELLENT No failures at all action of slide is smooth recoil is tolerable and the rubber buttpad is a definite bonus. I haven't fired any 3" shells through it yet but performance is better than expected and I am well pleased with my purchase. I will recommend this weapon to friends and anyone looking for a solid, very inexpensive Home Defense/WROL weapon.
