Concur on the Mossberg. I understand the Maverick 88 is basically the same gun with a different safety and costs somewhat less.
I once had both a Mossberg 500 and a Maverick 88. Most parts were interchangeable. The fire control group is the only difference. They used to ding the Maverick for having plastic parts, but Mossbergs have them now, too. All aftermarket accessories are interchangeable. It’s a toss-up, really.
