How ironic, I logged on to ask about my shotgun and another 870 thread pops up. George I loved your story on hunting. That reminded me I have an 870 Wingmaster Magnum sitting in the closet. I apologize for my ignorance but I know little about it or shot guns in general. It is a 12 ga. The barrel measures 27 to the receiver, it is ribbed with 2 beads. It collects dust. Do you guys have an idea of it’s worth. I am thinking of selling it on Armlist. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I tried looking up the age from the barrel. It didn’t make much sense to me, from what I see on the barrel.
Thanks guys

It would have a 28" barrel, does it have choke tubes? It appears to be one of the newer style, I feel it is worth $400 - $500.

Google Remington date of mfg. It goes by serial number. Easy to figure out. I'd say yours is pre 1980's if it has a fixed choke and will be worth less than if post 80's with changeable chokes. The barrel really doesn't tell you much since they can be swapped out.

It has changeable chokes and I have a wrench somewhere but I have no idea what choke is in it. I know I am pretty pathetic. I have thought I should learn to use a shotgun and one for coyote would be good but this is probably not the one to drag around the wet Pacific Northwest. I was sure I saw a site that listed Remington dates by serial number but I am not finding it.
