1976 Remington 870 Wingmaster Restoration

Look at the fantastic 1976 Remington 870 Wingmaster Restoration by jpfrog from the Remington 870 Forum:

Finally! I decided to start a new thread, as the original referencing RichNZ’s retoration was getting quite long, and I don’t want to take away from his masterpiece- it was a huge help and inspiration to mine! He also achieved the color I was looking for (I already have a bottle of that Brown and Degreaser on order!) and added a few nice touches that I didn’t do but may still try (polished trigger guard, nice upgraded grip cap).

    I really love how the stock looks with it. The matte finish, beautiful grain, and lack of any detailing that I can see (cross hatching, etc.) make for a subtle, yet classy look with the refinished metals. Well done!
