would the maverick be a good home defense or shtf shotgun.:whistling:
Yup, its just a Mossberg 500 with a few differences.
I love my 88.
I have the 7+1 20 inch barrel.
You can get all of the accessories for it that you want. It goes bang everytime I pull the trigger. It eats up any ammo I feed it. And it was a lot cheaper than other options.
+ Cheap - better to have a gun now than be saving up for the Benelli you never get
+ Cheap - less $ gun = more ammo/practice
+ Splits the difference between 500/870 controls. Probably the best config period
+ 7+1 without extensions and other shaky structrues
+ Perfectly reliable weapon
+ Lot's of accessory options
- Not quite as sturdy as a 500, less sturdy than a 590; What are you doing that that really matters?
Can't hate period. I have a 500 20" for the record.
The reliability of the Mossberg 500 with a more convenient crossbolt safety, and cheap too. The only downside is that it doesn't come with wood furniture.
If you love dual extractors and a cross bolt safety then the Maverick is perfect for HD work.
This guy made a decent video of a Maverick 88.
All Mossberg shotguns are very reliable HD guns.
