You may want to post a WTB on the gunbroker forums. I know two C&R 870s made it into CA via that method. Otherwise, by doing some smart searches on gunbroker, you may be able to find some. Last time I did a search, I found around 4 of them in less than 15 minutes. Look for pics with serial numbers. Do searches for all the year numbers, with the 19 and without.

I tried gunbroker. I found 2 but the were about 3 years off. I tried searching C&R 870 and other combo's. If you happen across one let me know
Thanks

Here are two that I found.

1953

here's one in CA.
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=116494435 . No year listed, but that serial is very early. may even be 1950. Says no C&R FFL, but you've got an 01, so it should be no problem.

Yah, the searches I did, I put 1951 870, 1952 870, etc, covering all the years up to 1958 (figuring you could sit on it for a couple months til 09). I also did 51 870, 52 870, etc. And if you really needed to find something, you could look at every auction and see if there is a visible serial number in the C&R range.

I "think" I have one. $375, no barrel. If you are interested I'll run the SN with Remington to make sure it's old enough. If you have another nice Wingmaster (not C&R) I'll do a trade if you throw in $100 cash plus transfer fees.

Or you could give me at cost transfers for life and I'll give it to you for free.:chris:

Search on "vintage 870" and "early 870" -- I have turned up some that way. If it shows a corn cobb forend it is probably a good indicator.

I bid on one of the gunbroker ones. Thanks for everyones. help. I would love to give you lifetime transfers but I have a feeling I would need a whole safe just for you.
Thanks again
