I have a 2 3/4in 870 with a 3in barrel on it. You can shoot a 3in shell through it but you just have to make sure to pump it fast and hard, since the ejection port aint as long. Ain't no difference in a magnum or non magnum Wingmaster receiver other than the length of the ejection port.

As long as you're barrel is a 3in it aint gonna hurt nothin. I've killed a bunch of longbeards with my ol 2 3/4in Wingmaster with 3in turkey loads and a 3in barrel on it. Like I said above you just gotta pump em a little faster and harder or the tip of the hull will stick tryin to pop out the port.

Update , I was at my dads over the weekend I laid my 2 3/4 870 wingmaster down beside dads 3 inch 870 wingmaster and his 870 3 inch sportsman , first we compared the bolts , the ejector and extractor are in the same location on all three , 2nd we compared and measured the ejection port and found they was exactly the same on all three , guess the next step is to tare them down and look inside for any diffrances

There won't be any internal differences FWIW. The "magnum" feature is dictated by chamber length. You should be fine with 3". The bolt will lock up on the case rim and all of the pressures generated by a magnum are dispersed within the chamber wall. Fire away.
