I think I've read some where that some parts aren't interchangeable, but I don't know for sure since I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to Mossbergs.

Did you get the 88 All Purpose, or 88 Slug ?

I have the security version. The ONLY difference between the 88 and 500 is the placement of the safety.

I think the older 88's had only one action bar, but the newer ones have 2 action bars, exactly like the 500.

Yeah, it's an 88 all purpose and has the dule action bars as do all of the newer ones, I thiknk since the early to mid ninties. Very sweet weapon. Fairley simple and was a joy to shoot. I do think that I may order the 18.5'' barrel just to have it for home protection and the zombies.

I have the maverick model 88 shotgun. I have two different barrels for it. I use the long one for hunting birds while the short one mainly for defence or camp/bear gun. Mine has seen lots of use in winter conditions and worked well. The parts and acc. are the same as a mossburg 500 . Actually mossburg makes/ownes maverick. Not sure why not just stick with the main mossburg 500.

We must be prepared at all times for we never know when the undead menace will be upon us !

Much like the Russians they use the ' Let's throw all our men at them ' technique to over run cities, after which they just wander around mindlessly, much like....... well.......... *insert metaphor here*

Do your part for your community, part take in the zombie genocide:cool:
