Re: 870TB LOP?

Thank you for the info. The TB I am looking at has a 13-3/8” LOP to the end of the original wood. The standard spacers and pad should be close 14-3/8. Now to find an original/period correct Remington pad and an original grip cap and screw.

Best,

Jay

870TB LOP?

Have an opportunity to purchase a 70’s era 870TB. As is often the case wiry trap shooters, the stock has been messed with. The pad was removed, a wood extension was added and then a recoil pad was added. The question is if the stock was cut before the extension was added. So, I’m trying to find out ...

Re: Ridiculous Wood

That is pretty much what Remington told me, as well. Just hard to believe that wood of this grade would even be in the same bin as that for regular production guns. I have had a number of 870's and 1100's and I have never seen wood like this. I also have a 700 Mountain Rifle in 7x57 that has REALLY ...

Re: Ridiculous Wood

It was made in 1973. Remington started producing 870’s in 28ga in 1969. The previous owner bought the gun for his wife in 1973. She didn’t care for it so it was relighted to his safe until this spring.

Ridiculous Wood

I have been a fan of Wingmasters since my dad gave me a 20 ga LW for Christmas in 1973 and I have owned them in all gauges at one time or another. Recently I bought a 28 ga LW with what is by far the most ridiculous piece of wood I have ever seen on an 870 and perhaps as fine as any as I have ever s...
