first off welcome to the site, not familiar with the maverick but to me it looks about like the mossberg 500, the only mossberg i have ever owned is an 835, i bought it used from a guy that needed money, and i got a good deal, didn't really need the gun, but thats beside the point. i have handled a few 500's and they also appear to be a well built and designed gun.

with all that being said, i'll say this, i don't really like buying anything that is a new design until i have seen or heard some field reports, for not much more money you could get the 835 or a remington 870, both of which have stood the test of time, i know up front it looks like a lot of "extra" money but if your spread it out over the lifetime of the gun there isn't much difference, save up a little longer and buy what you really want, i assure you the 835 or the 870 will last you 3 lifetimes, not saying the maverick won't just not familiar with it.

the maverick 88 is just a plain jane version of the mosberg 500. they work great.... they will accept mossberg 500 barrels and the only real difference is it has a crossbolt safety,one sliderail versus 2 on the 500, and you cant replace to forearm with a tactiacl model like on on the 500 ... great gun that you wont be dissappointed with, also accepts all standard stocks that fit a model 500

I have one. For the money, they are a great gun.
Nothing fancy, but they get the job done.
