Sounds like the neighbor/ friend got a nice one at a very fair price. Never owned a 870, all my Rem. shotguns have been the 1100's.
I do have a Browning and a Mossberg at the moment.

Wanted an 1100, but at the time I bought my 870, it is all I could afford.
Now, it's my shoulder that says NO! ;)

Anybody remember the 870 Wingmaster in .410 bore??? I've got one with vent rib (25" BBL). It comes from the '70s and came with a mahogany stock (denser wood than walnut and added back a few ounces to the weight). I shot competitive skeet back then, sooooo, I also have its twin in an 1100 auto in 410 with the 25" bbl in "skeet". It also has the mahogany stock...They really are beauts...won't ever get rid of them...

I sure do. I had a 70s vintage 20 ga Wingmaster with a mahogany stock. Also had a 70s vintage Remington 582 22 bolt rifle with a mahogany stock.
