IIRC, the biggest difference is the trigger groups. there are some other minor differences, but most parts and accessories for the 500 will fit the 88.
they are not throwaways by any means, they are just not as pretty as some other shotguns, but perform quite well. i am on my second one and have had no problems out of either one.
