    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? :texas:

    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.

    No seriously. I would shop your local pawn shops and find another 500 or an 870 with a ~20in barrel. My girlfriend works for Cash America and they have both in there for under $200.

    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!?
