Saw these out Sportsman’s Outdoors Superstore and picked up one before they went almost immediately out of stock.
They are classic 1970s/80s-era Remington 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge Police models complete with a really groovy Ohio National Guard “ONG” stamp and state overlay.
I am hoping they will get more in as they are (what I think) is a great deal. Regardless, the pics are interesting and are here for posterity.
Some even still have brass rack tags
That bayonet lug/sling swivel bracket…
Some even had Remington-stamped, likely factory-installed, overfolding stocks installed.
They were selling for $229 to 239, depending on set-up.
The folder reminds me of this shot of 1985 USMC riot gear
Marine Corps riot control gear arrayed for inspection. Among the equipment displayed are a gas mask, protective vest, M870-1 riot shotgun, .38-caliber M10 S&W M&P revolver, DETEX watchclock, and nightstick. (NARA DM-ST-86-01722)
Which of course is a lead-in for this series of NARA shots from 1989 showing the by-the-book manual of arms with an 870, USMC-style. You gotta love the clunky old 1st-Gen kevlar, M9 Beretta/UM84 Bianchi flap holster, and crisp woodland BDUs.
