It's a wingmaster in good condition.  He is gonna bring it into work tomorrow.  He said that I could buy it for $75.  Seems like a damn good deal to me! :shock:


Sounds almost too good to be true.  Ask the guy what's wrong with it.  If it's just beat up then it's a good deal.  If it's got other issues, then it may not be worth it.  If he says there's nothing wrong with it, ask him that if you find something wrong with it, if he'll give you your money back.  Then take the gun to a gun shop to have checked out, unless you know someone who knows what to look for.

Also, find out what kind of 870 Wingmaster it is.  My gun book lists 9 different kinds of Wingmasters, ranging in price from $110 for 60% condition up to $800 for one type in 100% condition.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Oh ok.  He is gonna bring it in tomorrow.
I bought a few boxes of shells and was gonna fire of a few.
We've been working together for about 8 years and are pretty good friends so I don't think he's gonna screw me over.  He did say, however, that he bought it from another guy and then it just sat around and he never even fired it. ???  I guess we will find out.  I will let ya know what kind of Wingmaster it is.

So it turns out its not a Remington 870 Wingmaster...It's a Winchester super x model 1. ???
From what I read on the internet machine, it's supposed to be a pretty good gun.
It Looks pretty sweet.  Everything appears to be in order but I don't really know what to look for if something is wrong with it.  I will have to take it to a gun shop like you said.

Winchester and Remington are two different companies.  Winchester Super X is a type of shell. O0

I sent you a PM about it so we don't keep hijacking your "Welcome" thread. ;D
