    Pawn shop find: R870 Wingmaster

    I was in my local pawn shop for a look at the two suppressors who are in NFA jail, and ran across a wing master 12 gauge. It has a 18.5" barrel and a tapco stock and could use a re-bluing job, but otherwise looks great! There is slight rust marks but no serious pitting that I can see, so I picked it up for $250 OTD.

    How much would a re-bluing job cost for all of the metal? Would it be better to send it off to be cerekoted or some other finish besides bluing?

    Can I fit a youth wood stock onto the gun, or would the full size stock be the only one I can stick on? The regular full size LOP is ok, but I would like a shorter one because of my little t-rex arms.

    Action is smooth and trigger is so-so, but I have passed up on a lot of other wingmasters, albet in better shape, for hundreds more, so I don't mind putting a few hundred into the gun to keep it nice for decades to come.

    Beyond that everything else is a crap shoot.

    I found a "youth" stock on eBay a few years back that was pretty cheap, I put that on a 870 20gauge for my wife.
    I can't help with reblueing as I've never done that.

    I would recommend a Wilson big button safety especially if yours has that j key in it.
