The Hawk models are banned as well? I was under the impression the name/manufacturer change allowed importation. The guns are well made and Parts are VERY close to Rem parts so a good smith would be able to cross them over. I have tried parts like the side saddle Shell carrier and they are the same. Stocks are interchangeable. All steel receiver and the best factory sighted shotgun I have ever seen. Barrels would interchange if you had the ring moved to the same position as the Norinco barrels. I have tried a mag extension, but did not use it because I want the 2 shot version so the end is flush. I just like to be different. Every one has mossbergs, but I get to say "nope not a Remington or a Mossberg" when asked what kinda Shotty that is. :wink:Charger01 said:They're banned from further importation due to GWB's Executive Order,
The Maverick also uses the forearm to mount the action bars to, instead of a carrier. There are also a few other minor differences. I believe the warranty is different to, but I am not sure. I like the Maverick, but prefer the 590 with 9 round tube. It even has the mean and evil bayonet lug :twisted:cloak said:Ok I have a Mossberg Maverick 88. It is the same as the model 500 series. The only difference between the 2 are the areas where the safeties are.
