1956 Wingmaster Magnum goes Tactial/HD

Just got done re doing this old meat gun giving it a new lease on life with a new purpose. Don’t run across many from the 50’s in 3” Magnum.

Thank you! It sure is buttery smooth. I can tell you this, you can go to a gun store today and pick up just about any high end pump and none are as smooth as this old ‘56. As a matter of fact all of my 50’s/70’s 870’s are fantastic.
Last year when I rebuilt it I did a flex tab conversion with a new carrier tab, chrome bolt, slide, fore end assembly, 18.5” blued police barrel, aluminum follower, Volquartsen extractor, 1100 carrier spring, police sear spring, mesa tactical polymer side saddle, 2 shot extension, jumbo big head safety, TLR-1 light. This year I did the synthetic forend and Magpul stock.
It shoots great and should be good for another 60 or so years.

For sure it’s going to last a lifetime or two. Sound like you have put together well.
