Yup!! That's was going to be my point also, you can get another Mav for the cost of the barrel damn near. One can never have too many Shotguns. Now get to it and go buy the Mav88 Field model!!either buy another maverick for $159 or buy a 28" mossberg barrel for $175. the 500 barrel is the same as the maverick barrel.
Uh yeah, you think?? Damn it man why wasteI have the 18.5" six shot version and purchased the 28" vent ribbed barrel from TJ General store for about $150. Came with the Accuchokes, fits and looks nice. Yes I probably should have just bought the Maverick field version from WalleyWorld for $189.
