older 870 wingmaster .410

Just purchased. From the barrel markings I believe its a 1971 vintage. Its also marked as a full choke.

I am assuming (but not sure) the parts for the late model are pretty much the same. The barrels for the late model I believe are modified choke per the Rem website.

I really like this gun. Its not a super light weight and has some good heft to it for the caliper. I havn't shot it yet as it needs a good cleaning.

I had a friend that used one for rabbit hunting. It was the only one I'd ever seen. We thought it was funny because I used a Savage .22/410 for rabbit hunting...we just never hunted together.
