From the dove fields of Denmark come this still attractive and serviceable specimen of the Remington 870 Wingmaster. Denmark, Tennessee, that is, in neighboring Madison County, West Tennessee. Manufacturer was Remington Arms of Ilion, NY. From its B B barrel date code, it was manufactured in January of 1981, the month that President Reagan swore his oath of office. Construction is steel barrel, magazine tube, receiver, bolt, carrier assembly, internal parts and trigger, with an alloy trigger group housing. Buttstock and forend are DuPont RKW glossy finished American Walnut with pressed checkering, and a factory issue F325 Pachmayr Recoil pad. Barrel is 28 inch fixed choke Modified, .715 muzzle diameter. Wall thickness measures .065 inch near the muzzle. Sight system is 12 post serrated top Ventilated Rib, .235 high at the magazine cap, with stainless bead front sight. Chambering is 2 3/4 inch 12 gauge shells only. A person can put a 3 inch chambered barrel on this shotgun, but it will not eject 3 inch shells correctly due to the position of its ejector. Steel magazine tube holds 4 rounds of 2 3/4 inch 12 gauge shells, 4 + 1 capacity with the Remington green adapter or plug removed. Magazine cap is old style with inside serrations that mate with the barrel lug’s detent ball. Magazine spring is held in place by a traditional factory friction inner cap. Trigger is .215 smooth faced steel, with safety button behind it; trigger pull gauges at 5 1/4 pounds, with minimal felt creep and overtravel. Stock contours are field type, 1 1/2 inch drop at the comb and 2 1/2 inch drop at the heel, with a 3/4 inch right hand cant. Length of pull measures 13 7/8 inches from the trigger face to the end of the black and white lined brown recoil pad. This is not a southpaw friendly shotgun. Weight empty is 7 1/2 pounds, with center of gravity at the breech face. Metal finish is blued steel, with chrome plated bolt and semi gloss black anodized trigger housing. Surface wear is moderate, with operation whitening on the magazine tube and slide arms, edge and carry whitening on the receiver and barrel edges, and moderate scouring on the walnut surfaces. Note the recoil flake in the stock at its receiver junction beside the safety. Note also, that there is no weathering around the end of the buttstock. This shotgun was fired extensively, 2000 to 3000 rounds by our estimate, and hunted with, but it was never baptized, never allowed to sit up wet. We rate it as Good, perhaps Very Good, 70 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean, operation is quite smooth, and it has no pitting at all on its surfaces. Replacement pricing on a walnut stocked Wingmaster approaches $800 in our area. We’re offering the Reagan Era 28 Modified Vent 870 in the photos, however, for only $ 319.00. LG2768
