Maverick 31023 88 12 18.5 CYL 6RD
by Todd P Date Added: Friday 24 June, 2011
I received my 88 a couple days ago and finally got a chance to take it to the range. First time firing a shotgun of any kind, so this was an experience for me. :)
The 88 is a tight gun, seems well made to me. Almost no rattle when handling the gun. The action is smooth and cycles nicely. I added an ATI top fold stock to enhance the home defence aspect (moving around tight spaces quickly) and it was a perfect fit and easy install. My only problem with this purchase is that my wife is unhappy that I bought something that requires (in her eyes) a new gun safe. I'm very happy with the shotgun, and enjoyed firing it at the range. It was accurate and had a healthy kick to it. I bought a bunch of #7 target shells for home defense to avoid overpenetration in the house, and discovered that my range doesn't allow anything but buckshot or slugs. So, I put a bunch of slugs through it with no problems at all.
I highly recommend the gun, and this was my second happy transaction with Bud's.
