Remington Offers Model 870™ Wingmaster® with Handsome Semi-Fancy Claro Walnut Stock in 12 and 20-Gauge Versions

Madison, N.C. – For over a half century, the Remington® Model 870 has been America’s number one pump shotgun, with almost 10 million made and sold. The recently-introduced Model 870 Wingmaster with Semi-Fancy Claro Walnut solid wood stock and fore-end offers hunters and shooters a beautiful new version of this classic shotgun in both 12 and 20-gauge offerings. (Note: The Model 870 Wingmaster with Claro Walnut is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers.)

These Model 870 pump-action shotguns feature the same proven and reliable twin-bar action that has made this shotgun so popular with flawless feeding and ejection. Both 20 and 12-gauge models handle shotshells from 2 3/4 to 3-inches and have hammer-forged, 26-inch and 28-inch vent rib Rem Choke® barrels, respectively. The receiver and barrel are finished in an attractive, high polished blue and classic pheasant and duck game scenes are embellished onto each side of the receiver. A silver grip cap is enhanced with a raised, script “R” logo and complements the polished bolt. A gold-plated trigger adds the final touch, creating the best-looking production Model 870 ever manufactured.

The buttstock and fore-end are carefully carved from semi-fancy Claro walnut blanks. Beautiful checkered panels adorn the pistol grip and fore-end. This fine wood, combined with the metal finish and classy embellishments, assures this Model 870 will be prized by future generations as well as this one.
