No, but it's "brake."

You can even buy the barrel by itself for the Remington 870...

Those aren't [primarily] muzzle brakes, those are devices to allow safe destruction of locks using frangible door buster rounds.

It keeps the pressure safely equalized so the barrel isn't damaged--if you were to jam a bare barrel up to a lock and shoot it with door busters, it could screw things up but good.
Those "teeth" are so you can get force the gun in place and get a good hold for the small amount of time you need to destroy the lock using the door buster round.
I read all this in a gun magazine of some kind recently, can't remember which.

Falcon Industries/Ergo Grip has a few in stock for the thumb screw 18" Mossberg 500. They are not listed on the website you will have to call them in.

I have two left in stock also, PM if you want one.

Will it fit the Maverick 88?

They could be Tromix Shark Brakes.

Nope, they are machined as part of the heavy walled barrels when they are made.

Yes it should fit the 88 with an 18 1/2" barrel and the thumbscrew.

That thing is Wicked!

I would hate to think what sort of cover I would need to keep that from tearing up anything that came near it!

It is (as has been stated) a stand off device.

Just a word of warning- it is also a DNA sampler. That means it will cut you, gun bags etc.
Unless you need it for breaching, it is not viable.

Roger that, only need them if you are going to be breaching.

Who said anything about "NEED", as long as it makes it look cool....

Not my cup of tea, but I only bought my first "tacti-cool" shotgun (930SPX) a few months ago.... I have to admit, it is one fun gun to shoot!!!, but realistically, I hope to never be in a situation where I NEED to use it...

Aside from breaching applications, what kind of patterns do those barrels throw with buckshot??? Anyone have any practical experience with them to share? Aside from breaching and potential use as a prod at contact distances is it useful at all?

Reason I ask is I ain't gonna be breaching doors and I hope like hell I'm not gonna have to be prodding someone at contact distances with the muzzle of my shotgun so............

Other then breaching or "DNA sampling" it doesn't have any added value.

Heed Desert 1's words well. He is a shotgun SME and very much dialed into this tool...

I have a Mossberg with this barrel and it patterns like my Maverick 88 with the 18.5 barrel with a cylinder choke. It is a heavy barrel though.
