OK, here goes. I have a 1968 20 gauge Wingmaster. Of course, it's the standardweight as the lightweight version had not been made yet. I've owned an 870 Express, also a 20 gauge. The Wingmaster weighs a bit more than 6 1/2 lbs and the Express just a bit less than 6 1/2 lbs. Both had the same length of pull and approximately the same drop at comb and heel. Both were outfitted with similar recoil pads. I shot the same loads through both guns and the felt recoil was about the same. I know the physics of the experiement, if properly instrumented, would show the Wingmaster to recoil less due to its greater weight. However, the difference was so slight that I couldn't REALLY feel it.
