Hello from Flagstaff, AZ. I am overdue to post on this site since I still own my first Wingmaster 12 gauge. It turns 50 this year! For a very long time, it was my only shotgun and has taken everything from doves, quail, ducks, and pheasant. Maybe a rabbit or two and a fair amount of skeet to prep for hunting season.

Since then, I have added a Wingmaster in 20 gauge and a Model 17! Also a Model 700 in .270.

I have also given my son and son-in-law their own 12 gauge 870 Wingmasters.

For several years, I have considered adding a .410 or a 28 gauge. At a local gun shop, I was finally able to hold a .410 Wingmaster. Never even seen a 28. They are a bit expensive and hard to find. I understand the limitations of each gauge/bore. All comments are welcome.

Sounds like ya got some quality there Timex. Am an 1100 fan myself with a TB grade in 12. Great having the steel receivers unlike many others these days. Bought my 700 in 84 before the influx of sub-standard stuff hit the shelves. Bluing process used back then and high polish are the quality touches I miss these days on firearms.

Welcome aboard! The 870 in .410 has been on my hunt-one-down list for awhile, and am sure if I found a 28 I'd pick it up so fast it'd be a blur. They sure are keepers in whatever flavor 870 ya got!
