Howdy! Im looking to find out the value of my remington 870. It is a 20 gauge wingmaster. It has 2 barrels one is 20" with an adjustable choke and the other is a 30" plain barrel with a bead sight both are chambered for 2 3/4" shells. The sn on the receiver is 1165xxx"x" (the last x is actually an x), sn on the 20" barrel is 1282xxx"x" (another real x at the end), i dont have the 30" barrel with me right now and cant remember the choke but its numbers do not match either. It is an older model (1965 is what remington told me) that is the non-lightweight model which can take the magazine tube extensions off of the 12 gauges. It is in good shooter condition as it has some wear and scratches in the blueing and the stocks. The bad part is one of the previous owners scratched some identifying numbers into the left side of the receiver and underneath the receiver behind the mag tube. I know the scratched in numbers are going to hurt the value but are these older 20 gauge wingmasters more desirable/valueble than the newer lightweight ones?

Maybe $200. It's got some issues. Mark

Around here 870 20 gauges go for a premium. Your's does have some issues, especially the numbers engraved into it that would lower the value. The good news is that since the 20 ga standard weights are not made anymore the barrels alone bring good money. If the 30 in. barrel is in good shape it would probably bring $125 to $150 probably more if it was a 26in improved cyl. The gun as it is around $200 but if it wasn't for the poly-choke and the engraving $300 easy.

IT's a shooter gun anyway.
