View Full Version : Mossberg Shotgun's

Some time back I received a Mossberg Maverick 88 as a gift. It's got the black polymer stock and forearm and has the 26" plain, bead sight barrel (I'm guessing). If I remember correctly, it's got the 5-6 shot tube on it. I compared it to the Mossberg 500 Cruiser that my room-mate has, and they seem awful similar. I think I remember seeing that the Maverick models were the "budget" shotgun's produced by Mossberg. I know I've seen variants of it at Walmart, with a shorter barrel of course. I'm thinking of buying and 18" barrel, to go along with my Winchester 1300, so I'll have a couple of defense scatterguns.
Anybody have any thoughts, comments, knowledge they would like to share about these particular Mossberg's?

Thanks,
Medic

You're correct in that Maverick is Mossberg's economy line. The Maverick is basically a 500 that has been economized; single action bar, plastic furniture etc. AFAIK the barrels also interchange, but not positive about that last.
