Remington 870 Wingmaster Restoration (Instruction, How to)
I have received a letter from Rich Lynch from New Zealand. He has done a fantastic work restoring his Remington 870 Wingmaster made in 1954.
I’ve spent the last few weeks doing up a very rusty 870 Wingmaster made in 1954. I went for more of a
classic sporting look. It was my first attempt at rust-bluing – felt that it was more in keeping with the old girl’s age rather than the newer coatings available.
Stripped rust off metal work with malt vinegar and wire brush Metalwork rust-blued with Laurel Mountain Forge: Barrel Brown & Degreaser, with a baked on linseed oil finish
Barrel shortened to 23″
1187 Claro Walnut Stock (with longer stock bolt), with varnish sanded off and finished with linseed oil
SuperCell Recoil Pad
Meprolight Tritium Shotgun Bead
Rich, thank you so much for fantastic photos!
