870 Express deals?

Looking at an 870 Express for general clay shooting. Local ads have them at $210 for 28" ribbed, rem choke, wood stock. This looks like a pretty good deal. I was looking used but was surprised that I couldn't find anything cheaper than the new.

Anything I am missing or is there a better deal out there?

Was looking for a Wingmaster 28" remchoke barrel to fit an existing older mint Wingmaster but decided that for a few extra bucks would get something that would not hurt if/when the kids scratch the finish.

Thanks for any comments

You'd be hard pressed to find a better deal on the Express. The Wingmaster is far fairer, but the Express will take a beating.

I picked mine up from a lease buddy for a bill, but he was a nice guy that just upgraded to an old pigeon grade Browning SxS.

There is one in the buy/sell/trade section for $190. It's black synthetic and comes with a scope. I'd buy it myself but I just bought a wingmaster that I didn't need.

Great guns BTW.

Thanks, I saw that on for sale. I figure after shipping and an FFL transfer fee, I am still way ahead with the local sale price.
