    either a late 50's or early 60's 870 Wingmaster 12ga/30" full choke. It belonged to a friend. Very nice condition and with the 30" full choke barrel, bet ya' I could do OK at 16 yards! A blast from the past...

    That old full choke Remington will take you WAY back past the 16! My old 28" full w/ the corn cob forearm has won me some chickens from way past the 27! Big fun to shoot those old guns sometimes. J. Terre

    yes sir, those older scatterguns can be loads of fun! Nothin' like an old reliable 870 Wingster...

    Don't sell that old girl short, those 30" full choke bbls. will surprise a lot of people. You will probably have to replace the recoil pad, add a little length & build-up the comb a little with some mole skin. Then just go out & show everybody where the bear sh%t in the bushes. Ross

    Could be just the camera angle but that barrel sure looks long.
