Bill23799: Hey Md Prepper. Just an update here on the Mossberg 702 Plinkster i bought last year on lay away at Walmart for $99.00
I am loving the rifle and it is shooting great. I think i mentioned earler i had a problem with the 10 rnd mag. If you load 10 rnds the first round was popping up and causing FTF jam. Load 9 rounds and no problem. I called Mossberg and explained the situation and they said no problem and shipped me a replacement 10 rnd mag. Took three weeks to get here but it works perfectly with 10 rounds.
Thanks for this fantastic review of the Mossberg 702.
However you have cause me a new problem. Now that I have the taste for shooting again I want more.
I have just started my second AR-15 rifle project build. I bought a DMK AR-1 Extreme polymer lower for $49.00 locally last week. This week my lower parts kit arrived from Palmetto State Armory and all parts fit like a glove. I mean a good fitting glove.....not an OJ Simpson glove. Next month I plan on buying my A2 butt stock assembly from Joebobsoutfitters for $54.00.
As I am on a low fixed income now this will probaly take about a year to complete.
I am considering getting the PTAC 16" barrel Fl;at Top Upper assembly from PSA for $199.00. All that will be left to complete it will be a Bolt Carrier Group and charging handle.
Please let me know if you know of any better places to find parts for an AR at low prices.
dean counts: Big 5 periodically offers the Mossberg Maverick 88 with both barrels hunting and defense for same price $189
ROLLIN THUNDER: Is there any way to attach a sling to this?
Houston's Very Own: Might buy one this weekend. Just turned 18, this will be my first gun! My mom ain't to happy. Lol She even threatened to kick my out the house, if I bought one. Lol She hates guns!
MidwayShooter: I have had an 88 18 inch for a few years now , until today. I bought the 20 inch. I paid 199.00 plus tax. Awesome shotgun.
Paul Daniel Williams: What is the price difference between the 88 and the 500
Scott Dobson: Great video as usual, my question is, on buds website it says it has a 6rd capacity and in the review section someone even comments that you can load 7 in the magazine. So is it a 5,6, or 7 round mag. capacity?...thanks!
shotguns machetes: i like Remington but i love the Mossberg and Maverick line up better
Frank Gonzalez: great video, I'm getting one
ROLLIN THUNDER: Just curious to what type/brand ammo you can't or wouldn't shoot out this if any? And can you use chokes on it? I'm looking for something for personal or home defense but not sure what to get exactly.
Manny Cruz: great shotgun i unfortunately paid $300 at a mom and pop gun shop. now i research before buying.
Topspeed350: I paid $149 years ago from Walmart...it always works. Good review.
Jamal Armstead: thanks
Jamal Armstead: Can you shoot slug with it
Joseph Meko: I am kind of new to Shot Guns, have a lot of other guns, but have not yet bought a shot gun for the house. Question, The Slide Release on this gun, can that be disabled I don't really see the need to have to release the slide, I live alone, so there is NO chance of a Child or any one getting to this, I like this 88 but as I said I am new to the shot gun. If any one knows please let me know if you can disable the slide release. Thanks
Johnn Smith: For using with 2 3/4's High Brass it's great. But you put a 3" Magnum in that and it'll hurt like a b*tch! I've shouldered many weapons in my day and That is the very first one that has ever made me lay down on the ground in pain. I thought my collar bone was broken. Took me Weeks to actually get past the pain. Now I can fire any other bullet launcher or shotgun I have, even my 50 cal muzzle loader and it doesn't kick like that Maverick does. *So, I tamed the dam thing by loading a gym sock with lead and filling the shoulder stock with it. Now it kicks like a new born baby. Just a bit of warning from someone with A Lot of experience with firearms. **Like you said in your video, this Maverick is Cheaper that the 500. I've got that too. I fired them both side by side. I've even weighed them both and the Maverick is a lot Lighter than the 500. Maybe that's it. I know there'll be some comments on not shouldering it right or some stupid comments like that. But you put a 3" Magnum in that shotgun and you'd better be prepared. If you've never tried it, go ahead and let us all know here how long it took you to get up off the ground. Just stick with the 2 3/4's shells and you'll be glad you did. Good luck in your preps.
ERprepper: I got my milspec mossberg 500A from a college student leaving oklahoma for California for 125$ just a short while ago. Love the deal I got and I love the mossberg 500A!
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.
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.
