They both shoot well and unless you prefer a different forearm at times the 88 is a better bargain.

I have both and shoot both. For me they both do the job, but the Maverick is less expensive.
Yeah that's pretty much where I'm at. If they really are identical then I am leaning towards the 500 simply because it's drilled and tapped and gives the option of putting on a red dot sometime in the future. However I saw they make Saddle mounts for the 88, are those any good or are they garbage?
