    A decent, entry level pump gun. You will enjoy it.

    I have the field gun w/ "28 barrel & the security pump w/ "18.5 barrel & everybody likes to shoot'em :d so much so that my son-in-law bought one & one of friends from work bought one as well.
    No complaints at all, just good shootin'!! :d

    I just recently bought maverick 88. 24 inch barrel i believe. first day i shot it i put 150 rounds through it. not a single problem. i purchased the ATI deluxe heatshield(black) with the ghost sights and had an allen shotsell holder layin round the house slipped it on and now have the perfect gun for shootin clays in the field and its not all that awkward for home defense. just cut down the barrel and bam. there ya go. but yeah i love this gun. functions beautifully and definately was worth the 120 bucks i spent on it. and the fact that most model 500 mossberg accessories pop right onto the 88 just sweatins the pot.

    Yes the Maverick is a good shotgun. I have several hundred shells thru mine without a single hiccup.

    But I'm always amazed when folks ask for opinions on a product after they purchase it

    i just bought another one last week, it's the third one i've owned. this one has the 28" barrel and rib on it. they are good entry level or take to the fields or woods and go hunting gun as you won't be worried about scratching it up. i have never had a failure out of mine. if you want a shorter barrel, the Mossberg 500 barrels interchange, as Mossberg makes the Maverick. it is probably one of the best bangs for your buck, for a pump shotgun there is. i wouldn't hesitate for a minute buying another one. i just ordered a 18.5" barrel for mine.

    I did a favor for a friend about three years ago. Surprisingly, he gave me an 88. It's got a pistol grip, heat shield, side saddle shell holder, and a touch pad attached to a mag-lite. I played around with it. I like it. I wish it had a full length stock, but it's a pump gun, so it's hard to make it NOT work.
    For a cheap gun for SD/HD, it's great.
    I own my share of shotguns. That is the one I keep loaded.

    the maverick model 88 is a good inexpensive shotgun that taken care of will last a long time. probably not a gun that will ever be worth a lot of money even years down the road. a good take it to the woods hunting gun, but not a gun that will be a long term investment like a browing citori!
