The pinned forend and being made in mexico being the biggest difference to a 500.
Yep, it’s a Texican, being that it is assembled in Eagle Pass. Probably by Haitians soon though.According to James, the 88 is actually made in Eagle Pass, TX near the Rio Grande. So while not "Mexican", I'm sure a large part of the work force are... It gets its name because Eagle Pass is in Maverick Co. and was initially produced in 1988 to compete with "import" shotguns.

Now you're making me think I should get one!This video got me motivated to go buy one, a Maverick Security 7+1. It'll be a truck gun mostly, and ride with me on the ATV. It it gets broken or stolen I don't give a shit 'cuz it was only $204 plus tax.
I think I am going to load it with Winchester copper-plated #4 turkey loads. They are 1-1/2 ounce at 1260 fps and have buffer material. Ought to do the trick against farm predators. Or other things.
