Re: shotguns, really, buy used. You pay about half the price or less, if you shop around, and the function is the same, at least in my experience. But maybe I've been lucky.
What to buy used? I'd say 870, 500, or 590 are all solid choices, Maverick is fine, too.

So, uh, do you mean it's all sticky, or what?
I prefer pistols that dont feel like they're jizzing on me, thanks.
My thoughts exactly. The Norinco clone is also sold under Interstate Arms Co. (IAC) and Hawk Industries labels... often factory equipped with ghost-ring sights and other goodies. Also, the only real functional difference between the Mossberg and the Maverick is safety placement. The 500 has a receiver tang safety while the 88 has a trigger guard safety. It's usually only an issue if you install a pistol grip.KeepItSimpleStupid wrote:If you want an 870 clone shottie, The H&R Pardner Pump Protector goes for under $200 new. Made by Norinco.

While the 372 is made by Norinco, it is actually a clone of the Ithaca 37 action. It's a neat design (bottom eject) and they're relatively uncommon when compared to the Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 designs. I've heard (but cannot confirm) that the interior fit & finish can be a bit rough on some examples.MrMendigo wrote:However, have you heard of the Interstate Arms Model 372? Anyone? Is this just a rebadged Norinco 98?
