Maverick 88 Security

(5 customer reviews)


Mossberg has improved their Maverick 88 Security 20″ 12 gauge shotgun by lengthening the barrel and increasing the magazine size, making this an excellent home defense weapon. The 3” chamber accommodates both 2-3/4” and 3” factory loads, and this version comes with a durable flat dark earth polymer stock that’s equipped with a rubber buttpad to take some sting out of the recoil. It features a positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator for smooth, reliable operation, and the bead sights are easy to see in most lighting conditions.

Furthermore, every person who intends to guard home and hearth and kith and kin ought to have a minimum of three guns — a handgun, a rifle and a shotgun — for defensive purposes.

The 12-gauge pump shotgun in particular is incredibly versatile and has a fearsome reputation amongst bad guys. However, even though the AR-15 has stolen some of its thunder, the pump shotgun is still more than capable of “bringing the noise” when called upon. Also, but with the wide variety of pump-action 12-gauge shotguns on the market, which one would be a good choice for someone on a tight budget who wants the best gun for his or her money?

  1. Oscca

    Love the long magazine tube

    It’s a good beginning shotgun. Not too fancy for a novice but not so simple you’d be embarrassed to be seen using it. Only issue i have is the cost of ammo makes it hard to break in properly.

    Great home defense shotgun.

  4. Trys

    Front bead sight was drilled an 1/8 inch off center. Had to send back to the manufacturer. Other then that seems like a decent gun for the price

    MOSSBERG is a fair priced and of good quality firearm. Bought my 1st Mdl. 500 in 1992. Bought 15 more since.
