It's an "A" with a 28" non ribbed barrel. It is one L-O-N-G sucker. Black synthetic stock and forearm, but I am really thinking of either selling it and buying a Maverick 88 Security 8 shot... or... save up anoth couple hundred and get a 20" barrell / 9 shot tube / pistol grip combo and be able to convert it for HD and clays.

Thoughts? Smart remarks?

Bass pro has one with both 18" barrel and 28" barrel and a pistol grip for $349 brand new, thats my next purchase just waiting on some gift cards from my mastercard rewards. ;-)

I have a maverick 88 field model and was looking to get an 18.5 barrel too but the cheapest price I have found is $119 and Academy has Mav 88 18.5 models for $189 so I am probably going to buy another shotgun with the shorter barrel.

I'll trade you for a Mav 88 security, 20in, 8 rnd tube, including a pachmayr vindicator pistol grip and the original synthetic stock. Also has a 4 rnd side saddle. I have the receipt with serial number. Gun is around 6-9 months old and only had maybe 100 rounds put through it. It's HD ready, lemme know if you are interested or want pics.

To have multiple barrels for your 500 is a good idea. It is made to be a modular gun. have a shrouded 18.5 inch, and maybe a 26-28" for skeet. The made it to be easy to change barrels, I.e no tools. Having multiple barrels makes it worth more later when you trade/sell it.

The normal 6 round mag is enough for home defense.

Can you forsee a home invasion that takes more than 6 rounds of 00B to stop!?

Haven't you watched "Night of the Living Dead".

BTW, we need a tin foil hat smiley.
