The gun functions perfectly and quick delivery by Bud’s to my FFL. Would absolutely do business with Bud’s again!

The Maverick 88 12 ga 20" security arrived well packaged and undamaged from Bud's in the expected time frame. It is well designed, (cross-bolt safety located in front of trigger guard) finished, and functions well. Don't be concerned about the polymer as it functions as well as my 500's and the cross-bolt safety is more desirable than the tang safeties. An excellent choice for home security as well as the pick-up and ATV. The affordable pricing makes it practical to buy one for home security, one for the pick-up, and one for the ATV.

I have owned this exact same shotgun once before, about 10 years ago. If anything, I think it has been slightly improved by use of a more forgiving recoil pad. Not much else seems to have changed. It's definitely an entry level, utilitarian 12 gauge. No frills, no bells or whistles, but it functions perfectly, is VERY accurate, and groups well, despite the 20" security length barrel. It's not quite as durable as a similar $400 Mossberg 500, which uses steel in place of some of the polymer on the Maverick 88. It's not as prestigiously carried by law enforcement as the Remington 870, and it doesn't have as slick and fast an action as the Winchester Defender, but if you want a reliable, fun, and inexpensive way to lay down serious 12 gauge firepower, NEVER overlook the Maverick 88 as an excellent option, because this gun will do everything the others will, without breaking the bank!

It%u2019s cheap and it works. Handles all loading from light target to some nasty slugs. There are no recoil reducing properties to this firearm whatsoever so be aware that even light loads may leave a mark as opposed to a trap gun etc.

Good gun fits 7 three inch shells in the mag tube and one in the chamber. Very clean. Lightweight. The slide is sticky when I first went out with it cause its new, but it slides super easy now after I cycled it a bunch and oiled it. So oil it when you first get it and If you don't go out and shoot it run some dummy rounds through it a bunch of times to get it worn in. What I also like about it is that almost all parts for a Mossberg 500 can be put in this. Just remember most Mossberg 500s are 6 shots not 8 like this so if you want to buy a different barrel to make this gun more versatile just be aware at what you have. Maybe you might want to get the Maverick 88 field model instead those come in 6 shot. And you can change the barrels out with 500s. Since the barrels screw onto the end of the mag tube you need to watch out for that.
