    I pick up my cousins 870 Wingmaster that he shot skeet with when he was in the Air Force. He got it in England, he thinks around 1965. The barrel code has three letters KK and a Q or O. He has a slug barrel with it, that has the letters X R H. Everything I have searched on the net just shows a two letter code. The Remington Society says there were three letter code barrels, but do not give detailed identification. The serial # is 821072V. Any help on giving me the date of these barrels and receiver would be appreciated. Thanks, Wayne

    Call Remington with the receiver serial number and they can tell you when it was made. 1-800-243-9700. They can also tell you about the barrel. Barrels get swapped out some, but the receiver date is easy to determine.
