Didn't get what I really wanted but I bought a 20 ga. today. Really wanted a Stoeger Arms Condor 20 ga. O/U but wasn't willing to spend $449.00 right now. Although retired, we manage better than most, but being we have a fixed income and still have trips planned for the future. Because I've been invited to a 5 Stand Even (stationary sporting clays) in a couple months, I wanted a 20 ga. now so I bought a new Mossberg Maverick 88. At one time, they were $159, then $179, then $199 and now the MSRP is $229. I found this one new for $199 plus tax. It should work fine as a pleasure and hunting gun. All the reviews that I seen on-line give it a 5 Star Rating. Sounds like a decent gun for the money. Anyone have any experience with the Maverick?? This photo is off the web but it's the same as mine.
