I would probably choose them in this order:
I don't really have anything against the Stevens, but there are just a lot more Mossbergs out there and they've been around for a long time. Not only do they have a more proven track record, but If you ever want extra barrels, or different stocks, you'll have a lot more options available with the Mossberg/Maverick.
I realize the Stevens is the most affordable, and I don't know how important that is to you, but $50 or so one way of another is forgotten pretty quickly if you end up with what you really want.
