Ok , my dad has a older magnum wingmaster 870 , I got the same gun but mines not a magnum , every thing in side looks the same as far as the bolt and such go , so why can't I but a 3 inch magnum barrel on my gun ? I googled this and some said you could others said no , just wondering what y'all would say . I am not thinking of trying it as a do have a mag 870 just curious ..

The barrel will fit but the action won't work with 3" shells. There is not enough travel to eject a fired 3" hull.

What's the last letter in the serial number, V or M? Ejector positions are different.

Hey guys , just for kicks and giggles , I take the barrel of my 870 mag and stuck it on my 870 wingmaster , I loaded it up with 3 inch shells ,I didn't fire any but the pumped through it just fine , I ain't seeing any reason with a 3 inch barrel you can't shot them in this gun . Some one explain if I am wrong ?

a fired shell will be longer than an unfired one, see if it will eject a fired hull

Your gun has an ejector positioned to eject 2 3/4" shells.

They worked fine because the crimp was not unfolded (as would be the case in a fired shell). 3" shells will not likely cycle, but you're welcome to try. Put a spent 3" shell in the chamber and let us know if it ejects.

I cannot recommend shooting any length of ammunition that is not inscribed into the side of your barrel.
