A 16ga Wingmaster is worth a pretty penny. I would get a 12ga, preferably a Police trade-in, and put all that stuff on it. But that's me.

Scorpion8 is correct. Our opinions are secondary.

Yeah I would have rather had a 12 gauge but the rifle was given to me by a good friend for free & I had nothing better to do during the B.S cov-d 19 lockdown so I made it , And it's probably the first ever Tactical/assault Remington 870 16 gauge Wingmaster ever made and I've done tons to it as far as upgrades like a tactical shell lift gate , put in a tactical over sized honey comb safety , a Wilson Combat 2 shot mag extension , a S & J type 2 follower all new springs as far as Mag spring , dog carrier , HD hammer spring , a police firing pin and pin spring all made by Wolff gun springs , a Mesa tactical Stock , Pistol grip pump slide , flip up ghost rings a green and red dot scope , a surefire 800 lumen tactical flash light , a blue laser dot scope plus 2 spike bayonets one a 6 inch and the other a 10 inch that was custom made just for my gun

Our opinions are secondary, but dude, that's a bit over the t...
...well, our opinions are secondary. But I'd take BKinzeys recommendation and you'd have a sweet 16 looking sweet and a 12 ga looking mean and nasty...

The 16-ga Wingmasters are highly coveted. What did the original wood look like and did you keep it?

Can't see swinging that thing in and around the bedroom hallways of my house at night with that either. But not my house, not my gun.
