Gentlemen,

I received the following email from a duck hunting friend. I've never owned a 16 870, can we point him in the right direction?

Thanks, --Doug


Doug

I have a Remington 870 Wingmaster pump 16 that was my first big boy gun. It has sentimental value to me, but I'd also like to shoot it. I'm sure I bought it around 1957. It has a blue barrel and receiver; does not have a ventilated rib, and since there were no choke tubes back then I put a Cutts poly choke on it. Bottom line I'd like to get another barrel, but it has to be blue, not matte black. If I can't find one with choke tubes, I'd prefer an IC barrel. Any ideas as to how I can start a search? Hope all is well.

Best regards,

Jim

Thanks for your heads up on barrels. Now that the radar is up something will turn-up.

There are several plain barrels on Gunbroker right now.

Good Luck with the search.

Just for clarification, There is no Cutts poly choke! It's either a Cutts or it is a PolyChoke. They are two different brands.
