I had been looking for an 870 Wingmaster project for a long time, they are out there, but I always seemed late to the party.

Anyway I bought this 1955 vintage Wingmaster for $150, I wasn't sure if I wanted to restore it as the finish was pretty decent (pardon the oily fingerprints)



then the Remington gods brought me this


it came to me in parts, I could only find a couple of minor things missing. It is a 1974 vintage with a pressed checkered walnut stocks.

I'll document the restoration here, for the record I am not a professional gunsmith, simply a student of the art

Look forward to seeing your progress and I will be interested in the metal finishing side of things as my Wingmaster is stripped awaiting its refinish, just not sure which way to go. I have Cera-Kote 2 part matt black finish and as I have a synthetic stock on at this time it seemed the way to go, but looking at your other work, I am bending toward getting some wood and blueing
