i went today and found a great deal on a new mossberg maverick 88, i got the gun for just over $150 otd. it has the 28" barrel but i can get a slug barrel for it to deer hunt if the field barrel doesn't shoot them well. the guy at the shop said he uses his 88 28" field barrel to shoot slug to 50yds and does good so i'm hopeful. thanks everyone.

Like I said before, my 20 gauge Maverick 88 field does quite well with the smooth bore and rifled slugs at least out to about 70 yards. I haven't tried any further shots....yet, but that's at the range. I don't hunt with slugs.

You might try a gun auction. Go to the last hour or so of the auction when people are a touch worn down and a lot have gone home. Last auction I was at, during the last hour, I could have had my choice of a lot of nice pump shotguns for $200 or less.

Life is good.

you can check your local gun shops a good friend of mine picked up a litely used Mossberg slugger barrel $90 best part it was the smooth bore rifle sight no ports. I really wish mossy would stop porting every thing.

The field barrel can shoot slugs - whether the choke works well with your choice of slugs is easily determined at the range..........

I shot slugs with my Maverick using the modified cylinder choke that came with the gun. It shot high with a 12-o-clock hold. Using a 6-o-clock hold, it does well.

If the barrel accepts choke tubes, buy another one in IC or SK they are cheap enough.
