Value of FIRST YEAR Remington 870 Wingmaster ? ?
Saw a very early Remington 870 Wingmaster last weekend. I have no idea of its real value.
It has a barrel numbered to the frame. (First one I have seen.) Plain barrel marked KWW (May 1950) First Year of production..
Has the corn cob fore end. Has chromed shell lifter (silver tongue ?). Low serial number 19xxx.
Bad news is that it has been re-blued. Know that the re-blue ended its desirability to collectors.
Local price for a plain barrel common 870 in similar condition would be $200 - $225.
Should this one bring any premium price because of its vintage??
