Mossberg Maverick 88 Shotgun Review Low Cost Prepping Options




What do you think about this video?

AngelsLastVengeance: Good video, and I totally agree with you about racking the slide in a home defense situation. Bad idea to give your position away. I love my Maverick 88. It's a damn reliable gun, and fun as hell to shoot. As far as the forends, I've never actually seen an aftermarket forend specifically made for the 88 models. I recently swapped my 88 forend out for a 500 forend, which required replacement of the entire assembly. Got the 500 slide action tube, forend, forend nut, and the forend nut wrench for $124.00 from Midway. All replacement parts were factory Mossberg parts. Besides having the capability to easily swap forends now, the action also feels much smoother. Having a pistol grip stock on my 88, I definitely prefer the crossbar safety. I personally wouldn't put a pistol grip stock on a 500 or 590 due to the location of the tang safety.

Aaron Richards: U don't wanna run in this guys house at night lol he don't play and he's dying to catch a body haha . Respect good is video I'm getting one 

emaroquin: Last year burglars entered my home and took everything while I was on vacations. Since then, maybe this will sound kind of crazy, but I would like to blow a burglar's head off if they try to enter to my home. 

Tom Strait: I bought my moss berg maverick 88 about 2 years ago. When I watched your video I noticed a problem that you had with the stiffness with charging the next shell when it's used in cold weather. I also had the same problem with mine. You asked for anybody to give you advice on that issue. I'm not a gunsmith by any means but I did my research and completely fixed the "sticky" issue. This is what I did. I went and bought a cheep set of small precision files from harbor freight tools. Next I took the shotgun apart. Once it was disassembled I took all of the metal parts that are functioning pieces and I filed down all of the sharp edges because these parts are not forged the are machine pressed and not finished completely. So give all of those edges a slight filing to knock off the rough edges and then reassemble. When I put mine back together I used a stuff called REM OIL, which is the only lubricant I use now. Trust me this procedure does work and I would love to hear your feedback after you try this. 

mayito8581: Got mine brand new for $170 in Texas

The "Just My Random Videos" Channel: Good review.  For me a shotgun is the absolute most versatile weapon on earth.  From the muzzle to about 130 yards there is nothing else I would rather use. Buckshot for close range stuff out to 25 yards and anything beyond that distance I switch over to slugs.  

Rodney McGlone: You can change forearm to a Mossberg 500 but you have to replace some other part


mvol5973: I bought one of these brand new 10 years ago for $170, after 10 years I have absolutely no complaints.  As this video says the gun does have some recoil but it's a shotgun.  Gun is extremely reliable, can't beat the cost, this gun has stood up to everything I have put it through without failure.

N smith: got mine from a buddy at a local shop for 120 bucks... best purchase gun wise I've ever made.

Aaron Olson: The 20 inch version u can run it 8+1 instead of 7+1 with critical defence 00 buck im not sure on the 18.5 inch if it would work or not

danny luong: Do you need anything special to add a sling ? 

Tevorek: Can you put a 28" barrel on this gun if you wanted to go hunting with it or something?

Brandon Brown (Francois Kutz): Where can I find the handle grip for one of these? How much the cost?

Jason Jordan: Im going to get one, less than a month ago a neighbor thought she was going to force her fat nasty ass in my place to get at my wife. I backed her down with a bat but next time it may not be a fat ass, it may be a fat ass with a weapon.

Kameron Lopez: If you are recoil sensitive by the mosberg maverick 88 20 gauge

Christian Lee: It dose sound bad a** thought :D
