    Anybody know whether the barrels are interchangeable?
    I have the Flex M590A1 marinecote with 18.5" barrel and plan on getting the Maverick 88 combo 18.5"/28" barrels.
    I'd like to use both the 18.5" and 28" barrels from the Maverick 88 on the 590 sometimes.

    No they are not interchangeable.

    You would have to change the mag tubes also.

    That would be ok as long as the chamber end of the barrels mates with the receiver.
    But I will order the Maverick 88 regardless as the M590A1 is heavy to carry when hiking and I like having a second spare shotgun anyway.

    Like Mossy said, have to change out mag tube. The receivers should be the same except for the markings and maybe trigger group.

    BTW, Welcome Aboard! :)

    Be warned the mag tube is screwed into the receiver with red loctite and will require heat and a strap wrench to remove. Not that big a deal, but not as easy as just going back and forth with long and short barrels on same model.
