870P #24899 polished blue 18.5" barrel with walnut stock. Any Calgunners have one of these Remington old-school riot shotguns? Love to read your likes and dislikes!

Think I would like one or a wingmaster w/18.5-20" barrel.

Many Thanks

I bought mine new-in-the-box on in June 1975. I love it. It's been shot a heckuvalot over the past 30+ years and the only thing that's ever gone wrong with it was a broken firing pin spring. Last time it broke was back in the mid-1980's. I replaced the second broken spring with the newly designed 870 FP spring and that one's still in there going strong. I replaced the original bead with an Ithaca Ray-Bar bead back in the 1970's and replaced the original Remington recoil pad with a Pachmyer sometime in the 1980's.

Here's the only pic of it that I have online:
