    This is my Maverick 88 after a few modifications. She came with the 24" Rifled Barrel which in now on my
    Mossberg 500 and standard stock. I replaced the barrel with an 18.5" one and dropped a Pistol Grip on
    her making it easier to maneuver around the house with. I keep her loaded with six rounds of 00-Buckshot.

    I like the look, have been wanting to do the same thing to my Mossy 500, where did you get
    the wood if I may be so bold, it looks almost brand new.

    I’m new to shotguns but after shooting my fathers 200ka [​IMG]
    I had to get one of my own. I didn’t want to stress the old mossy as it has a cracked stock and as I came to realize a bent muzzle.
    I found an awesome deal on a 88 Field/Security Combo. [​IMG]
    I haven’t shot it yet but I’m headed out with it this week.

    Got the Mav 88 out this afternoon.....
    I`ve been keeping it loaded with Fiocchi low recoil 00 but I wanted run the last of the Winchester Super-X 8 shot through it.....not my first choice for HD but it`ll do in a pinch! The targets below were hit twice each from 14ft.

    Nice placement. That would do the trick.

    I picked up a box of Federal Gold Medal 8 shot for $7.87 for a box of 25 yesterday at Walmart and ran a few through the 88 this morning from 21 and 16ft......A prettier shell will be hard to find but it is just bird shot and I wouldn`t use this for HD unless you have over penetration concerns.......

    I got the 88 out again today for a little fun....On my first target (pictured) the 1st shot was low and right but the rest connected with meat. The 88`s 18.5" barrel holds that Federal 7.5 shot together nicely from 21ft.

    Wouldn't you like to upgrade your 88 to something a little more tactical

    If you`re asking me, I like to keep my weaapons light and simple.

    A little quality time with the 88 and some Federal LE 8 pellet 00.....This is some soft shootin`buckshot and it barely throws a pattern in close quarters. I get it in a 50 count brick from SGAmmo for $37 plus shipping....
