870 Wing Master barrel

Postby Mallyard » Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:39 pm

Any one know where the best deal would be on one of these?
I let a buddy borrow the gun and he returned it with the barrel bulged and split about 2 inches down.
Its a modified barrel and was my grandfathers gun, I'd really like to get it back into shape. Thanks!!

Looked on their website, barrels are pretty expensive from them.

i've been looking for one to try on my gun, that i recently found shoots low and to the right(about a foot). fixed choke barrels are easy to find online, rem choke seem to usually be more expensive(and most are made for the express so the finish won't quite match).

i think i saw someone on one of the gun auction sites selling wingmaster barrels for around $190, which is pretty good for new. the light contour barrels are a lot more expensive than the standard ones.

also, if you really want to split hairs, the newer barrels have a "cheese grater" looking rib vs the "squiggly lines" kind off the old guns(the recievers all have the same machining).

Have you considered having it converted to choke tubes? With a extended tube or a polychoke tube it would bring some of the barrel lengh back.
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

Saw a couple 28"-30" wingmaster fixed choke barrels go for under $100 on ebay lately. I bought a 16 gauge wingmaster barrel off ebay for $87 shipped this winter.

I see them fairly often at the local Cabela's in the bargain cave.
