I recently purchased a Remington Wingmaster 870TB. Just wondering what it's really worth. Didn't pay much for it but haven't been able to find a lot of info on it.

Great gun, wish I owned one. I sold my 870 collection years ago to someone who is in love with them or sold them to someone who is in love with them. I still own a 1970s Skeet that is kind of a cult gun.

I paid around $425 for one about 6 months ago. That is the give or take price on gun broker.

Remington made a number of grades, TA, TB, TC and some others.
From what I read on the interweb, TA was lower grade, TB had better wood and TC had better wood and a little bit different barrels.

Mine is in very good shape, but shoots a little flat compared to my Y Model 12.
I briefly thought about adding an adjustable comb, but it doesn't make sense to me to add $200 to a $400 gun and get a $500 gun.

I will probably just add stick on pad or let it roost in the safe.

regards,

Todd / Illinois

The T stands for trap model, and the B stands for what Remington called B grade wood, which was typically fancier grain that the standard grade of wood.
Some of the TB stocks had quite a bit fancier wood. TB's still had press checkering on the wood.

The TC model has a little fancier yet wood, TC's had cut checkering.

As far as what is it worth, hard to say, price seems to vary some around the country, and it also depends a lot on the condition, and how much "customizing" the previous owner did, or not.

I have seen them sell from 400 to 600 on Gunbroker over the last several months depending on condition. I have a TB and an 870 Competition and love them both. They will smoke targets when I do my part. I really think they are great guns for the money. Enjoy and shoot well.

A TA will run around 450 or so. A TB will go in the 500 to maybe 550 in really good condition. The TCs have been running around 600 to a little higher. I saw one sell for 650 last week.

I recently bought back a very nice 870 TB in 99% condition with a Monte Carlo stock paying $500 to get it back. Fair deal for both seller and buyer. Regards, Ed. FWIW, pristine 870 TBs with MC stocks are kinda hard to find.

It's worth as much as you're willing to pay. I had one a few years ago with really nice wood I paid about $550 for. Sold it like an idiot. Just got another with nice wood for $450. Best trap gun for the money IMO. Shoots great and looks even better.

I paid $300 about 15 years ago and still have it. I believe they had a TD, engraved, cut checkering, etc. and a "Tournament Grade". Real nice.
