Check your numbers. It should be marked for 2+3/4" or 3" shells. You can shoot any 2+3/4" or 3" shot shells, brand doesn't matter. Stick to rifled slugs as sabot slugs will be very inaccurate out of a smooth barrel.

The choke should also be labeled. Did it come with a set of 3 or just 1? If it came with just one, it's usually "modified". Which should be fine for any type of ammo. Post again with more info on what the choke says and we'll let you know what it's ideal for. In the meantime, you'd be fine shooting any birdshot or buckshot.

Technically, yes for rifled slugs. You'll find some debate about this, but I've never heard of anyone having a problem other than accuracy. It would be nice for you to get a set of chokes anyway. They're pretty cheap. You'll get better accuracy with slugs out of a cylinder choke. It takes the Mossberg chokes and they should be easy to find.

BTW, congratulations on your new shotgun.

Yes, the 88 is the best value in pump shotguns.

Just a heads up... If you have trouble fitting 5 shells in the magazine it's because there's a rod which limits the capacity for hunting. If so it's easily removed. But I haven't seen a SG come with one installed for a while so it shouldn't be an issue.

Have fun, be safe, and double up your ear protection.

You'd be interested to know the Maverick 88 is a base model Mossberg 500 and will accept the Mossberg aftermarket accessories(forend excluded) as well as Mossberg 500 barrels.

Actually they still do put the rod in, which in the case of mine was a wooden dowel (approxiately 6-7 inches long) with 2 rubber rings around it. What you have to do is unscrew and remove the barrell, then turn the stock and receive assembly as if you are aiming at the ground and slightly shake the gun and the rod will fall out.

Just got my 88 as a Christmas gift from my daughter, however the choke and wrench were missing. Good old Wal-Mart go figure. Haven't got to shoot it yet but seems like a nice gun and was happy to find out most Mossy 500 parts are interchangable.
