What are the differences between the wingmaster and express 870's. What do you think i should buy, but first can you please tell me the differences.

Thankyou and Godbless

    The express is definitely rougher overall. The wingmaster action is much smoother and operates easier. Useability is about the same.

    I personally like the express. I have a 20 gauge 870 express that I use for rabbits and trap shooting. Works great!![:)]

    Wingmaster has a walnut stock. The express is birch.

    Besides the fit, internal/external finish, pressed checkering and lower grade wood, Remington also substituted some plastic and metal injection molded parts on the internals of their Express models. Unless they've changed things, even the extractor is a MIM component.
