Hello everyone can somebody tell me if you can buy different sights for the security version of this gun, or just tell me a website that has accessories for this gun?
thanks

It totally depends on the gun model... If it is vent rib, a ton of sights are available. If not than you are more limited. The bead on the barrel is threaded so it can be swapped with like threaded sights. The receiver is not drilled and tapped for sights on most Mossberg offerings...

The Mossberg 88 is a "rock bottom" version of the standard Mossberg Model 500.
It's assembled in Eagle Pass Texas from some parts made in Mexico.

"Most" Model 500 accessories will fit the Model 88 including barrels.

Two good sources for accessories is Brownell's and Midway USA:

I've had three Mossbergs, all 500 el cheapo versions. All have receivers that are drilled and tapped.

I don't know about the Maverick.
