my Maverick 88 has the safety on the triggerguard just like a Rem. 870.

Mine was on the trigger guard, but unlike an 870, the safety was in front of the trigger, not behind it.

OP. nice shotgun. If it was mine I would leave it as ir sits, buy an 18.5 barrel for an M500, clean, oil, and shoot is as is. there is nothing wrong with it as it sits, so there is really no need to spend money that could go towards ammo on mods to the shotgun.

Your cal, but IMHO, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Kfox, mine is like that as well.

from what i have gathered, the buttstocks for the Mossberg 500 will work just fine, but the fore end stock is a bit different because of the action bars and how they attach. i have read, but not confirmed yet on mine, that if you use the sliding tube off a Mossberg 500 on the magazine tube you can make the fore end for the 500 work on the Maverick 88.

hopefully in the near future i want to try this out with a laminated stock set from Boyd's on my Maverick 88.

I can't wait to see the pics when you put the Boyd's stock set on it. that gonna be one beautiful shotgun IMHO.

I have heard that, as long as you have the 2 bar fore end set up on the M88 you can swap it out with an M500 fore end tube. mine was an older, riveted single bar set up (bought it in November of 91) so i could never try it with my old one. no internal tube. i think this is the reason so many aftermarket companies say the fore end won't swap out. If your fore end has a spanner nut on the front of it, i would try another M500 fore end on it just to see. you never know. i have heard rumors that the 88's fore end tube is shorter than the M 500's but as i said, i have never had the chance to FS both to find out.
