    This is one of the older Wingmasters, not the newer Express models. Wingmasters are on par with the Police shotguns as they have metal parts and polished internals. The action on this pump-action is as smooth as glass. Has 18-1/2" barrel, mag extension, and deluxe walnut wood furniture. This is about as refined a shotgun as you are going to get. As you can it also has the pistol grip on it. Chambered for 12 gauge, 2-3/4" shells.
    Sell FTF only in the Houston area for $400 even. Dead bug not included.

    This is a Remington barrel, original to the gun. It has been cut down to 18-1/2". I wasn't the one who had it done, the previous owner did. Whoever did it, though, did a great job. I personally have not shot any shells through it since I bought it two years ago. It looks to be in excellent condition - I don't think the gun has seen a lot of shells through it at all. The bolt is shiny and it is as clean as a whistle.

    Make an offer. You can also sell off the wood furniture if you don't like it.

    The Express Model has:
    A plastic trigger group.
    The dimples in the mag tube and the new style plastic magazine retention system, EXCEPT on the extended magazine versions, which do NOT have the dimples.
    A rougher finish inside and outside, with machine marks and some burrs left.
    A rougher, bead blasted blue job.
    A less polished bore.
    A two piece sleeved barrel. (not 100% sure about this)
    Hardwood or synthetic stock, with a sporting-length fore end and pressed-in checkering.
    The Defense version has 18", Cylinder bore barrel, with a bead sight.
    The Marine Magnum and Tactical models have plated or polymer finishes.
    Some Metal Injection Molded (MIM) parts, like the extractor.

    The Wingmaster has:
    An aluminum trigger group.
    The old style magazine retention system.
    A much smoother finish inside and out, no machine marks or burrs.
    The Wingmaster gun receives a higher level of inspection and finishing.
    A fine, commercial polished blue finish.
    A polished bore.
    A chrome plated bolt.
    A one piece barrel.
    Walnut stocks with the famous "Bowling Pin" finish in gloss or satin. and better checkering.
    Wide choices in barrel lengths and choke options.
    No use of MIM parts, the extractor is milled.
    The Wingmaster is the full top-of-the-line commercial Remington pump gun, and is priced accordingly.
