Remington 870 16ga for $275?

I have the opportunity to buy a Like new in box, 1988 Remington 870 wingmaster 16ga for $275...Good deal? This gun is absolutely gorgeous...and If I toss in another $50 I can have the 500rnds of buckshot and several hundred rounds of bird shot. Should I?

I would. I'd pay the extra $50 too.

The more I think about it, The more I lean towards it. I used to have a bolt action 16ga and I fell in love with that round. My uncle has it so I'll probably make payments on it.

Go for it, 16 gauge guns usually handle better than a 12 , and with the ammo deal it's a yes.

And of course there is always thats all they talk about is 16's.

IMO,(but I like the 16) a no brainer. And get the ammo as well.

I love mine and I'd definitely get the ammo.
