Saw a brand new one at a decent price, thinking about getting it. Do the 500 “accessories” such as stock, foregrip, etc fit the 88?

Yeah, I saw online some saying yes, some saying no, some parts yes, some parts no. Wanted to see if anyone here had any real world experience.

Thanks

Bas for the price difference I'd get the 88. I have been looking for a 88 -8 shot model. Just haven't found one when I have the money, LOL. The main difference is the trigger housings. The 88 safety is on the trigger housing the Mossberg is on top rear of the rcvr.

Stock , forearm , side saddles, ect should fit, imo.

I've owned the 88, the 500 and the 590. Sold the 88, but still have the 500 and 590.
About the only differences I remember between the 88 and 500, is the 500 has a top-tang safety, whereas the 88 had a cross-bolt safety. That makes the 500 preferable to left-handers. Also, I think the 88 had a plastic trigger guard, and the 500 was aluminum. I never changed out forearms or furniture, so I can't speak to that. My 88 had synthetic furniture, and my 500's all had wood. The 590 also has synthetic. I do know the barrels are interchangeable, too.

Well, probably not gonna get the 88. Stopped by High Caliber with a buddy so he could get a couple accessories, and something else came home with me.
Pics or it didn't happen . . .

Lets us know how it does been wanting a Taurus 357 for a while now. All my Taurus revolvers was good ones.
This is gonna be my "woods-n-water" gun. I'll see which of the loads I developed for Bobcat's 38 and 357 do best in it, but doubt I'll worry about developing any loads other than a good snake killing load for this one.
