FWIW, my local WallyWorlds are still hip-deep in shotshells - although the RF & other metallic cartridge shelves are virtually bare.

Wallys around here have a few boxes of 20 gauge STS, maybe a few Win AA in 410 - either it isn't coming in at all or there are those folks who hit them at midnight and always clean everything out to resell at gunshows

Here is what I consider the finest single tutorial for tearing into your new (or new to you) Moss/Mav 500/88...

If your wares are worth 150-175 or below, it is a good deal...

Congrats to you. I picked up my first Maverick 88 today. I haven't gotten to shoot it yet, but if it functions well, I'll be very happy with it.
