Mossberg is expanding its shotgun lineup with three new Maverick 88 models for 2018: 6-shot and 8-shot FDE versions with a synthetic stock and forend, and a 6-round ATI top-folding stock version with black synthetic furniture. Full press release below.
Mossberg’s affordable line of Maverick 88 pump-action shotguns are known for their toughness, reliability and being recognized as “The Working Man and Woman’s Shotgun.” Joining the Maverick line-up are three new 12-gauge offerings: 6-shot and 8-shot versions with Flat Dark Earth (FDE) synthetic stock and forend; and a compact, ATI top-folding stock version with 6-round capacity and black synthetic furniture. Receivers and barrel surfaces on all three models feature a blued finish. These durable shotguns are for ideal for personal or home defense.
Maverick 88 pump-action shotguns are designed for reliable, smooth operation with the combination of dual extractors; twin-action bars; positive steel-to-steel lock-up; anti-jam elevator; and cross-bolt safety, located at the front of the trigger guard. At the core of its no-frills and low-maintenance design is the ability to field-strip the Maverick 88 with the simple removal of one pin. Adding to their versatility, Maverick 88 shotguns are fully-compatible and interchangeable with Mossberg 500 barrels and ACCU-CHOKE tubes within gauge and capacity.
Maverick 88 6-Shot FDE (31022) and Maverick 88 8-Shot FDE (31048) – Available with an 18.5-inch (6-Shot) or 20-inch (8-Shot) cylinder bore barrel, topped with single front bead sight, these Maverick pump-actions feature Flat Dark Earth-finished, full-length stocks and forends. MSRP: $245
Maverick 88 6-Shot Top-Folding Stock (31027) – This 6-Shot version has an 18.5-inch, cylinder bore barrel with single front bead sight. With the addition of ATI’s Shotforce Top-Folding Stock, this Maverick 88 can be compactly-transported in its folded position or shot in a pistol-grip configuration as the stock folds over the top, avoiding any interference with the gun’s operation. To shoot from a shoulder-mounted position, simply flip down the stock with a press of the quick-release button. The stock is constructed of reinforced polymer and features a textured pistol grip; sling swivel stud; and is pre-drilled for ease of adding a Shotgun Shell Holder. MSRP: $259
