Hey, I bet you thought this was going to be a Moisin-Nagant or something! My Dad bought this Remington 870 Wingmaster in a Base Exchange while passing through Japan in the early 60s (I'm thinking '62 while he was stationed in Germany and traveling with his transport aircraft). After my 16th birthday, he gifted it to me for Christmas. Look at that wood! It remains the "fanciest" firearm I own.
Darn, I got started too late for this week's Carnival of Cordite.
