Nickel Plated 870 Wingmaster

Post by wakejells » Sun May 17, 2020 1:30 am

I recently purchased this 1974 870 Wingmaster with a bright nickel plating and was just wondering if anyone on here knew how common it was for Remington to produce this type of Wingmaster or if it was something that was done aftermarket. Haven’t had a chance to get out to the range yet, but she feels very sturdy and has a very tight feel to the action. Any and all information is appreciated! Thanks! 8-)

Very cool, I've seen parade edition's which have the electroless nickel finish but they don't shine like that bad boy.

I was watching a show last night on Alaska State Troopers, and at a memorial for fallen comrades the ceremonial shoulder arms was a highly polished 870 used for firing the gun-salutes. Was awesome to see.
