The Maverick is Mossberg's SUPER-budget gun.

It has the safety on the trigger guard and a few other changes to make it cheaper.

I believe it's still assembled in Eagle Pass Texas, from parts made in Mexico.

so its not as durable or pretty much the same?

The action bars are attached directly to the forend so if you want a non factory forend you are out of luck. The safety is on the trigger guard instead of the top of the receiver (which I prefer). If you want the factory configuration the Maverick is fine. If you want to modify it then go with the Mossberg.

I never got inside one, since they came out after I retired.

My gut feel, based on what owners have told me is, the Maverick isn't as strong or durable as even the Mossberg Model 500.

There seems to be a problem with the action bar assembly breaking, due to weak welds and flimsy construction.

Remember, the Maverick is an absolute rock-bottom, cheap as it's possible to get gun for those people who aren't willing to spend even the low price of the Model 500.
