I picked this gun up at a local gun show a week ago. I paid $400, did I get an OK deal? It has a Remchoke 30" VR barrel marked TARGET 2 3/4" only. It also came with Super Full Trap choke. It also looks to have a 2 3/4" only receiver. The wood is PERFECT. I couldn't find one imperfection. There is one or two nicks on the trigger guard and a little blue wear on the magazine tube. Is this the older 870TB Trap model?

I believe that your gun is a model TA made from 1979-1986.

I also have a Remington WINGMASTER Mod.870
( v920207v ) 12GA Pump Shotgun. Mine came only with the 25 inch IMP. CYLINDER fixed barrell choke. And the the wood is in great condition as well.So I would say you got a good deal. I paid $299.00 for mine from a Gun shop in Dallas about 3 years ago.

I am not an expert but I did not think Remington had remchokes back in 1979.

IIRC, Remchokes came on the scene around '85-'86.
