I also like the new Ithaca M37 - don't own one, but there are two in stock at an area gunshop that I have looked over and I think the quality is there, might end up with one eventually (they are pricey, but very well fitted and finished). Remington still offers the Wingmaster, which is the higher grade M870 - they are pretty well proven shotguns.
Are you talking about the new ones or the old Wingmasters?

But, if I were getting a new gun, I'd have a seriousl look at a used Wingmaster in good condition. Of all the guns mentioned, it is the easiest to break down and clean. And to me, hunting in salt marshes, that is an important factor. Given it's 60 odd year history, it doesn't look like there'll be much of an issue with parts availablity.
