New Shotgun I bought Norinco (IAC) Hawk 982
« on: December 20, 2015, 03:43:08 AM »
So I bought a new shotgun. It is a Remington 870 clone with all milled parts. Many say this is better built than an 870 due to the fact there are no MIM parts or cast parts on this gun. So I bought it. I didn't buy it through centerfire systems who has these for 174.99+19.99 shipping. Instead I paid about 15.00 more and bought it via Davidson's/Gallery of Guns/Gun Genie through my local pawn shop. The reason being is that Davidson's offers a lifetime replacement/repair warranty on all the firearms they sell.

Norinco (Imported by IAC Interstate Arms Company Billerica MA. Yes the same IAC that imported norinco sks's) Hawk 982

This thing is a tank at 7.5 pounds unloaded!

The best thing about it is that all Remington 870 parts fit perfectly. Except for the forends as the hawk's action bar tube is a little thicker made than the 870 so minor fitting on the forends will be required.

Thank you.

This will go along with my mossberg 500. I had to get one with no mim parts because I have seen to many broken extractors at work on 870's. In fact so much so that we "retired" the 870's and went with pistol grip mossberg's. The 870's are relegated to range qualifications. Even then the extractors still break on them.

Cool shotgun and great price!  thumb1

Interesting info on the Remington 870, as it turns out, it's the only 12 ga I own (paid $300 for one NIB). I might have to look for an after-market replacement for my extractor.  Of course I've only put about 20 rounds through it so no issues to date. I imagine these get 100s to thousands of rounds through them at your qualification range.  Any other known issues with these?  I have it set up with an 18.5 inch barrel and a pistol grip for CQB...I mean home defense  :))

I looked at a few pumps, but settled on this one, the local shop had no idea Cz even offered a pump gun like this. A Cz 612 HC-P, priced around 325, as shown.

It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what....

Both brands above are very nice hallway hunters. As Carl said, A shotgun is probably the popular choice for home defense. In many cases I guess it depends on where your at in the house at the time of confrontation.  :P



Don't worry, I won't tell anybody, Ill just ask them if they heard about it.

I don't own a shotgun at the moment but I do want to get one soon. I like the Mossberg 500 for the safety placement but that 870 clone looks good for the money. I am assuming you can use 870 barrels so I could get one for skeet shooting?

GM, I have the same blocks for my retaining wall.
It's sad that the motto of young Americans isn't "live free or die" or "I regret that I have but one life to give for my country" or even "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country". Instead their motto is "pee yourself, shelter in place and cry for help". Pathetic.

Mainly just broken extractors is what we have but they are loaded with mim parts and cast parts. The volquartesen extractor for 28.00 at Midway USA is a good buy. If I owned a 870 express I'd buy all 870 police parts (non mim) to put in it!

Barrels are not interchageable without an adapter on the hawk i have the barrel band as I call it sits a little father forward than on the 870. But all other parts are completely interchangeable!

I suggested this extractor before reading you'd already bought it!

Because you bought them all and got free shipping right?

That's too bad. I want a shotty that can be a HD gun but I can also slap a skeet barrel on. Guess I will wait until I can get a Mossy 500 combo.

I could be wrong Carl but I've read on numerous forums that the NEF pardner pump longer barrels will fit on the IAC hawk without an adapter since both are made by norinco for two different importers. But if you do this I'd recommend you be the hawk 981 without ghost rings because it would be a weird sight picture having a rear ghost ring and a front bead!

Ah, a ray of hope and yes, the ghost ring would be a little strange with a bead.
