Bought one for $75.00 at a pawn shop. Blew the receiver out the bottom on a turkey load and the rest of the shells fell out on the ground. Possibly will not purchase another one.

The bottom of the receiver is already just a big hole, you had a shell stop/interrupter failure, can happen to any pump gun

I'm not a big fan of pistol grips on shotguns. They are really meant to be aimed and a stock is a better option for that.

Even hip shooting is better controled with a stock.

I got my Mav 88 at a Walmart not too far away and I bought a 25rd box of federal target load, a 5 dollar cleaning kit, a 15rd box of slugs, and a 2 dollar box of earplugs. I ended up paying just over $250 for the whole purchase. That being said i got the 6+1 field model not the 7+1 security model. I think you could do much better than the price you are looking at.

Yeah I have a maverick 88 and a model 500. I prefer the 500 over the 88.
