Ordered the Defender, received a Hawk 982. From what I see they are the same other than the name. Shotgun was packed real well in a styrofoam "case" with an extra chunk on both the front and rear sights. Looking it over I could only find two faults with it. The forearm had a larger gap on the right side than the left. Removing the barrel you could see where the connecting arms are brazed to the support ring, one arm was noticeably higher, which led to the offset gap. The welds are the second minus that I gave it as they are bare, with no sort of coating on them. Function wise, it works perfectly. Easy to load and unload. I read on one review that you couldn't unload the magazine without jacking the shells through the gun, but all you have to do it push the retainer to the side and the shell pops past it and right out. Some reviews on the internet have stated problems with the last round feeding. We ran 50 rounds of 2 3/4" Centurion #8 shotshells through it pretty quickly, then 10 rounds of Fiocchi low recoil 00 buck, 2 3/4" as well, then 5 Remington 1 oz slugs, all functioned 100%. I shot some of the #8 from the hip, this gun is manageable and ran perfectly for myself, my shooting buddy and his 13 year old grandson and even the wife ran a few rounds of the low-recoil through it. The sights were dead on at 50 yards with the slugs, the ghost rings are impressive. All in all a fantastic product that I'm sure will get lots of use, I recommend it 100%.

Solidly built shotgun, heavy enough to absorb the recoil of 00 buck loads. The butt pad is a nice touch. Fit and finish is workmanlike, but for the price, you can't beat this gun!

Would not reccommend this gun. You can tell that it is made in China. But if you just want something for protection at home, it's probably okay. You get what you pay for; cheap price cheap quality.

This is my first shotgun purchase and I absolutely love the 982! The construction is solid and I can't see a week point of the 982, it looks just like the 870. The gun loads 3" and 2 3/4" shells just fine, also the 870 parts are interchangeable. The Remington 870 18.5" home defense model was my first gun of choice but the 982 is a much better choice, same craftsmanship but half the price and with ghost sights! Buds did a great job and there was no damage upon shipment and shipping was very fast as well, I ordered on a Monday and got it on a Thursday. All that was needed was a clean down and oil and she was ready to go. I have yet to shoot it but I am defiantly looking forward to it!

First order from Buds, received shotgun in 2 business days. Great product, looks good, quality built. Have only fired about half a box through it, but the sights are dead on and the gun functions great. Would highly recommend.
