I've owned both a Wingmaster and Express. I recently sold my 30 year old Wingmaster (I needed room for a Winchester Supreme). I still own the Express.

Each year in the spring I would remove the trigger assembly from both pumps and clean them. From what I can tell the trigger assemblies are identical. Other than the wood and the parkerized finish there was not much of a visual difference on all other parts. Where I could tell a difference was in the sloppiness of the action. The 8-10 year old Express was much sloppier than the 30 year old Wingmaster and the latter was hunted with much harder. By sloppy I mean if you have a shell in the chamber and pull back and forth on the pump, the ejecter/firing pin assembly moves enough to make noise. This didn't happen with the Wingmaster. I still use the Express for turkeys and as a backup deer gun. I have never had a problem with it.
