I have been looking for an inexpensive 12 gauge and have talked myself into the Maverick 88, unless you guys talk me out of it. I like that its made under the parent company mossberg and everything I have read on the net about it is very positive. Does anyone know where I can get one cheaper than buds? I think I will get the 20" barrel so I will have a little more versatility out of it. Maverick 31046 88 12 20 CYL 8RD for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $193.00 Wish I could find one locally but no luck.
