Ok, so I've got the "field" version (28 inch barrel) of the Maverick 88 shotgun. It was my first weapon of any sort. Yes, even before my throwing stars! So I've read and heard that the 88 can take any accessories from the Mossy 500 as well. This was however was specifically referring to the "Security" version of the 88 (18.5 inch barrel). Now would accessories for the 500 work with my 88 Field? I'm looking particularly at the side saddle shell holder from TacStar. TacStar normally does a good job of displaying clearly, "This does not fit the Maverick 88." In the case of this shell holder, it only has checked off on the package that it fits mossy 500. I've read/heard this does fit the 88. The sales person says he "thinks" it fits. Now I need this forum's expertise. Please help! BTW...I'm ordering the 18.5 conversion barrel and have aready added the top folding ATI stock (That's right, our same Hi point 995 friends) as well as a shell holder for said ATI stock. I have the stainless heat shield with ghost ring sights to go with the 18.5 barrel when it arrives. And I was also told a different choke could be added to take any 500 foregrips as well. If anyone has knowledge, or simply wants to point n laugh, thats cool too. Or better yet, give other inspiring mods/accessories! Thanks all, Safe Shooting!!!
