I just recently scored a used 88. I just have one problem though. The gun came without a plug in the magazine tube and I would like to use it for hunting. Does anybody know where I could get one? Thanks.

You can use a wood dowel or a straight stick. Round the ends.

I've used a stick before I found on the ground. Put a plug from an 870 into an 1100, got in a hurry and didn't check for mag capacity. Got to the dove field and put a stick in the mag.

#2 pencil, full length & unsharpened.

I don't birdhunt, but have talked to people who have used them in their pumpguns.

The 88's are kinda weird. I found some " fits all" plugs at brownells but a couple reviewers say they don't fit in 5 round mags, which the 88 has. Goose season is a long time from now, so ill try the # 2 pencil. Thanks guys.

I usually go to NY to goose hunt but I hear some pretty tough gun laws got passed there. It's a shame, I loved living in that state in the good ok days.

Yeah, I'd stay out of New York for a while...THEY don't even know whats on the laws....

Go to NY, have a loose bullet in your car, or bag...become a felon for life. Ain't worth it.

Stay out of New York I have the rotten luck of living in this $hit state.
I was in NY until after 04 when the AWB ended and they instated their own. I had it with that state and moved promptly. The honkers and white tails kept bringing me back.

I spent 2 weeks in NY to race horses. There are few places I would rather be than on the backside of a racetrack. After about 3 days I could not wait to get back to New Orleans. I met some nice people at Aqueduct but Queens sux. When the van pulled up to take the horses and I back home I couldn't wait to get in.

Yeah, I dislike the city. About three hundred miles north near the Canadian border is some nice country. It's like a whole different place where I grew up.

To the OP you can buy the plugs at most any LGS or wal-mart. there are some that all you have to do is drop in and if it doesn't allow 2 shells to go in you can remove it and trim to fit.
