Replacement Wingmaster Stocks

Postby MasonG » Mon May 19, 2014 8:01 pm

I recently bought a 16 gauge Wingmaster off of Gun Broker. The stock was broken in shipping and the seller won't answer my calls to have an insurance claim initiated. That honestly makes no sense to me seeing as it clearly wasn't his fault the stock broke. Either way, I need it replaced. If I can get ahold of the stock that's correct for it then that would be perfect because the foregrip is in great shape. But if not, I'll just get both new to match. And if that's the case I'll go with the best looking wood I can get with a high gloss finish. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Go to eBay and be patient. BTW, 12 ga and 16 ga stocks are the same so buy a 12.They are more plentiful and cheaper.

Does the number of bands claimed simply mean you have an Ebay account?

Stocks for the 870 are ubiquitous. As has been noted, the 12 and 16 stocks are interchangeable. Numrich Arms has them. I'm sure that Midwest Gun Works does also, but their site seems to be down just now. And, of course is the afore mentioned eBay.

Did you try Remington? I bought one from them years ago. Same stock as a 1187.

Don't think they are the same , some subtle differences between 870 and 1100, I know that, if I remember right it's in the stock bolt.

Still got the invoice,states 1187 stock. However you are correct I had to also buy a different bolt. Longer if I remember right.

They are somewhat interchangeable but not the same. True original 870 stocks had a smaller diameter bolt hole and different drill depth. The 11-87 stock will work but has a much larger bolt hole to accommodate the action spring tube.

Thanks everyone. I checked eBay and found one in perfect shape and went ahead and bought it. Received it today, fits good. Gonna have it and the forearm refinished so they match. Should end up looking pretty good.

The 870,1100 & 11-87 are the same stock. So those who find it impossible to find a youth 1100 or 11-87 stock, just buy the plentiful 870 youth 12ga stock.
