Both Stoeger shotguns are side-by-side, meaning that the two barrels are side by side when holding the shotgun. Both have 20-inch barrels, weigh 6.5 pounds and are for right-handed shooters. The regular version has a blued finish, while the supreme model has a nickel finish. One customer review for the regular coach gun notes that it is durable, dependable and easy to clean.
The Mossberg Maverick HS12���s barrels are on top of each other, which makes it an over/under double-barreled shotgun. It is 35.5 inches long in total, and after loading two buckshots it weighs 6 pounds 4 ounces. The review from the Guns & Ammo website states the Maverick is a great gun for home defense, has a good balance and is comfortable to hold for extended periods of time. The reviewer also states that even though the Maverick is only 3 inches shorter than a similar model, it feels much more handy and lively. The review compliments the shotgun���s simplicity and states that even a novice shooter can use the shotgun safely.Learn more about Outdoor Adventure
