I've been out of the shotgun zone for decades but now they're raining on me like a cloudburst.
The first was a NIB Mossy 500 synthetic home and field combo with the two bead,ribbed 28 inch and choke set and the breecher style 18 for less than a new Wally World standard Maverick.
About two weeks later a guy walks into one of my regular shop stops with a fairly new 12 gauge Wing Master to put on consignment.
The gun had been left in a truck rack for about three weeks during a rainy foggy period and in spite of a valiant effort to clean up the rust the gun still has a pitted muzzle,a wavy streak the full length of the barrel,light pitting at the lower edge of the receiver and deep pitting at the grip end .
It was clear that the shop guys wanted this gun about as much as a bad case of bed lice.When I asked if they minded me making an offer they were clearly resisting the urge to dance on the counter.
The guy knew that the gun was trashed and it left with me for the price of a discounted Hi Point 9mm compact.
Now for the question: Will a three inch mag 870 express barrel work on my three inch mag Wing Master receiver?Same question for a 2-3/4 express barrel on the WM receiver.(I'm more than happy to give up the three inch chambers for the right barrel configuration)
There is an additional question but I'll wait for this answer first:THANKS
