I bought a used (less than 10 shells) Mossy 500 for $200. sprung the extra $80 for a shortened (18.5") barrel.
hey John that maverick 88 is that a 12 gauge and how long a barrel on that model? with out what fluff are you talking about i thought the 500 was pretty much a bare bones deal too.I bought a Maverick Security 88 for under $250.00. Same as Mossberg 500 series without the fluff. Can utilize 99% of Mossberg accessories.
