It was a little more than that.......275 OTD.........They had 299+tax on it, but I negotiated a bit.

Less than I would have spent on an express at wally world........

Ahh...if only I had the space. Right now, all I have left are "nooks and crannies" when it comes to storing weapons. I guess Ill just have to buy a bigger home if I want to expand my long gun collection. :(

BTW- Nice find...

This one filled the last open slot in my long gun safes. I could add a pistol or two at this point with available secure storage, but would have to add a safe to add any more long guns.

I sold off a HD/Slug hunting configured 870 express a couple months back in order to purchase a revolver so it was nice to add back that 870 today and in turn upgrade it to the Wingmaster :D.

If I am closer than Big G, you could send them this way. I promise to caress them and clean them and grease them and let them know they are loved.
I bought a new house, now I need a new safe. If you send them to me, it would help me convince the wife I should have a safe for them.
Beautiful Shotgun.

Great find.

By rescuing that old but lovable 870, you paid up your PETP dues for the year.

Enjoy...

PETP => People for the Ethical Treatment of Pumpguns???

:D

I expect this one will get some time in a dove field next weekend. It'll also likely get use by the nephews on some deer drives later this year.

Man, great gun. Here is my latest addition (I plan to give it to my Dad). If I tell you what I paid for it, you will only get mad:D. I called Remington for the date, it was born in 1955. I'm really happy about this one - this will be a gun passed down to my kids when we have them.

I would estimate the metal at greater that 90%. The part that looks like it is worn is glare from the sun.

Number Six here was made in 1955. I may use it on a dove shoot next week.

Yours has less obvious wear and I like that fiddle back grain.

Enjoy....
