Depends on the version of Wingmaster that it is. Could be a standard contour, small receiver gun, or could be a light contour barrel on the small receiver. Could be 2-3/4" or 3". Could be the original standard (large) receiver 20 gauge, or could be the small receiver. If you have one of the original, large receiver guns (20ga action on the 12 ga frame), don't mess with it. Those are very nice guns, relatively scarce, and you are not likely to find any barrels for it at anything approaching a reasonable price. Google what you are looking for once you figure out exactly what you have. There is stuff out there.

From Cabela's site:
"Model 870 Barrels with 3" chambers will fit both magnum and 2-3/4" receivers and will handle both 2-3/4" and 3" shells with a magnum receiver. (An M at the end of the serial number = magnum receiver.) Use only 2-3/4" shells when barrels are used on 2-3/4" receivers. 870 Special Field barrels and other model 870 barrels are not interchangeable. The 20-ga. lightweight barrels will not fit 20-ga. standard guns. Light contour barrels for the 870 Wingmaster have a weight reduction of more than a 1/2 lb. to improve balance, portability and handling without sacrificing strength or durability. "
