    For Sale: Remington 870 Wingmaster Left Hand 12ga project receiver (no internals). Receiver is mechanically sound. The only issue is at some point someone twisted off the last 1-2 threads of the magazine tubes. Consequently, when a barrel is put on the action, you cannot screw the magazine cap on. This can be completely replaced (Pats Gun Repair quoted me $120) or if your skilled enough, you can remove the broken section and braze on a new threaded piece. Could also use a reblue of cosmetics is an issue to you, which could be done at the same time the mag tube is replaced.

    This receiver is priced right @ $75 plus shipping to your local FFL dealer. If you know how hard it is to lay your hands on a 870 Wingmaster LH gun or action (or how expensive one is when you find it), you'll know this one is worth the TLC to resurrect it back to shootable condition. The only 870 LH Remington even manufacturers anymore is the Express with birch wood and a parkerized finish. Hastings currently offers barrels from 24" to 36" that will work on this action to complete your project. Use this opportunity to create your ultimate 870.

    ok, i'm closing a deal on a new trap gun and can use some more coin, price reduced to $55 shipped. Try finding ANY 870 receiver, let alone a LH one, for this kind of price!
