Re: Maverick 88 shotgun
The Maverick 88 is a good shotgun, I have one. It's basically a "no frills" Mossberg 500, but there are some differences.
The 88's safety is on the triggerguard and only locks the trigger, the 500's is on the tang and locks the trigger and hammer.
The 88's action bars are molded into the forearm and are not removeable from it. The 500's action bars are an assembly that uses a locknut to secure it to the forearm and are removeable for changing forearms. Cheer up though, all you need is the action bar assembly and locknut from a Mossy 500to change the forearm on a Maverick. (Butts are interchangable)
And the trigger assemblies and receiver covers will not interchange because of the safeties - unless you also swap safety systems.
Hope this helps.
