I won this Wingmaster on gunbroker. Ad specifically states "Remington Wingmaster 12ga 3". I've already paid for the gun and had my FFL send his info. Tonight I glanced over the pics again and realized this isn't a Magnum receiver, it's a 2 3/4" only, despite the ad saying 3". I got too caught up in looking at the condition of the gun that I never bothered looking for a "Magnum" rollmark. Not to mention I ASSumed because it had Remchoke, that it would automatically be a 3" capable gun. I feel like a dip***t! Moral of the story- check the rollmark of the gun and not just the scratches, marks, wear. -facepalm-

I can't make it out from the pics. It's definitely not an "M". T334356? is all I can make out

It’s a nice shotgun anyway. I imagine you could question the seller about the 3 inch deal, maybe take some off if it turns out to be untrue.

A review stating “not as described” is something to avoid. That would be a last resort for me. I’d call them up and ask for an explanation, politely.

I’ve made similar mistakes on gunbroker, as far as assuming the seller had a good grasp of terminology and condition. Sometimes you get lucky and can resell (being more honest/ informed) sometimes you find a problem months afterwards and you’re just stuck. Hopefully you can live with your purchase or return for a refund if not. Wingmasters are pretty hot right now. I doubt you’ll be stuck either way.
I told myself 11 times last year that I wouldn’t buy anymore used guns online, just avoid the potential problems.

I bought 12.

It may be a blessing in disguise. You still bought a sought after gun that could be modified as you want. Hard to think 3 inch would be such a rigid requirement as to make that Wingmaster undesirable. Good luck.

The guy gave me a refund, and is relisting it if anyone is interested.
