As the title says I need a answer tn. Are these the exact same spec as for wall thickness and chrome finish quality or is the 500 barrel a step up in quality . Thanks

Neither have chrome and wall thickness is an unimportant measurement unless you're concerned about creating an uber-lightweight upland gun, which neither will ever be.

They are both entry level pump guns, any difference in quality is negligible.

You're basically asking about torque specs and HP for a Ford Focus...

What is the lining inside the barrel then ...... I thought all smooth bore had a chrome coating?

Maybe it's a tuned ford focus :p +20hp

No, it's just polished steel.

Chrome is used on European guns.

In my experience, Mossberg 500 barrels are polished better internally and finished better externally. I've also seen Maverick 88s where the choke tube didn't quite line up with the bore, but that didn't seem to affect the patterns any. I doubt that any unmodified Mossberg Maverick would be unsafe from the factory, and if the fit and finish bothers you, you could simply buy a $100 500 barrel and put it on the 88.

Welcome to ShotgunWorld, Coverfire. I called Zach with Maverick Arms, Inc. technical support in Eagle Pass Texas on 07 May 2020 for a more in-depth report that I will post later. Zach said that all Maverick shotgun barrels are the same as all Mossberg shotgun barrels and have the same Mossberg sku numbers. Zach also said that the barrel quality of NIB Mavericks is exactly the same as Mossberg barrels because they are Mossberg barrels. Good luck, sir.
