Just bought an old Wingmaster, need help to determine how old it is. ...
Serial number is 11951xxN
12 guage 3" Magnum with a full choke, 30 inch barrel
walnut furniture and a recoil pad
Stamped with a "R" and a "G" and what looks like a horseshoe with a closed end
edit for barrel length
IIRC all "Magnum" 870 receivers have an "M" at the end of the serial number. You can put a 3" chambered barrel on a non-magnum receiver but 3" shells will not cycle.
I am not 100% sure so maybe someone else can either confirm or call me a moron
Maybe THIS will help
My bad it is and "M"..got the magnifying glass out.
Using that link it looks like it could be a November of 1960.
I'll get a hold of Remington on Monday
Thanks for your help
Called Remington, shotgun was built in 1968
