    Good looking guns! I too like the wood, I have 1 black .22, 1 black SKS, and 1 black .308, everything else wears wood!

    Very nice. I like the wood on both of them.

    The one below is modified Remington 1100. It`s not pretty, but it gets the job done.

    I just love the looks of that blonde 870. It just looks serious.
    The M37 is sweet though too. Nice scatterguns!

    Thank you

    This is what the surplused California Highway Patrol Wingmaster looked like when I got it on an online auction:
