i just laid my hands on a very good condition mossberg model 88 pump 12 gauge for $75. i cant leave anything i own alone, ever and ive already made peace with the fact that i will probably end up spending more money on modifying the gun than i originally spent on it in the first place. originally i was just going to use it for bird hunting and get a top folding stock for it to keep next to my bed loaded with buck shot but after i realized how easy it is to remove and change the barrel im thinking rifled barrel to shoot slugs for deer hunting this year. what is the model 88 interchangeable with? what i mean to say is can i use aftermarket barrels listed as being for any other model or brand shotgun on my mossberg 88? same goes for stocks. end result, i would like to locate a top folding stock with pistol grip and a rifled slug barrel for this gun but im having trouble finding either specifically listed for the model 88. also i really really need to locate a plug for it. its my first pump and ive been told by my grandfather (great source
) that you have to have a plug in a semi-automatic or pump that limits you to 3 shells when hunting. my mossy will hold 5 so i believe the plug has been removed and i would like to be legal when i hunt with it this year. where could i get one of those? i cant find one for it anywhere.
