This is a Glock Vs HiPoint argument.
HP goes bang for a cheaper price but looks like ass. Direct correlation.
TOTALLY disagree- More of a Remmington BDL vs ADL IMO

Are you having your 870 gold plated?
You should have the serial numbers ran on your Wingmaster. It has to be stolen. Graded Wingamsters are not $160, even if you bought it new in 1980. I paid $400 for a skeet grade 70s model and everyone that has seen it says I stole it. Then I paid $200 for a barrel for it. Now my gunsmith has spotted some items that need attention. He will send an estimate when the last minute before hunting season rush is over.

Not necessarily true Old Crow. I got my Wingmaster in 2001 for $250. While I may have "stolen" it from the guy that was all he was asking for it. I got a case of shells with it too. Mine had only been fired a handful of times when I got it (I have corrected that problem), the guy I bought it from bad purchased it from a widow whose husband bought it for home defense many years earlier and never fired it. Once he bought it he decided to go duck hunting, and as many ignorant people will tend to do, he went out out of season without a license, had no a magazine plug in place and had a case of lead shot shells (steel shot is required statewide), he went to some public land and was going over a fence into a preserve when the game warden pulled up and gave him the luckiest break of his life. The Warden rattled off the list of violations and told him that he could be taking him off to jail and fined him a huge amount, but instead advised him to either take the hunter safety course and learn everything he should have known, or sell the gun and don't go hunting again. He chose the latter of the two choices and sold the gun to me.

Here is a guide to collecting Wingmasters. Very interesting stuff! It's hard to identify an older Wingmaster because the serial numbers are not available to the public. Remington archives will identify your gun if you send a hard copy letter to Remington. You can expect to wait several weeks for a reply. The 870 I recently purchased is an 870 SA. http://www.remingtonsociety.com/rsa/journals/870
