    What! Replace the wood!?

    Why not just sand it down and refinish? It would be less money, and look way better than everybody elses plastic stuff. You have a nice classic shotgun, I'd keep it looking a little different than the dime a dozen express guns.

    If it were mine, I'd buy a plain bead 18" barrel, maybe a mag ext. and refinish the stock. If the receiver were messed up, I'd take the savings from not buying the plastic stock and have it duracoted.

    The wingmaster is a great shotgun, looks like you got a square deal too. No matter what you decide to do with it, it will serve you great for a long time.

    I know, I know...nothing wrong with wood, I have other shotguns and rifles with wood. BUT, this will be a duty shotgun that will get beat around some in the rack, etc. I'd rather take that original wood off and keep it for later and use synthetic for getting bumped around. Besides....it will match the Rock River sitting next to it in the rack (when I get to add the rifle).
