Wilson Border Patrol.

Recommended Posts

The Wilson is an 870, a high dollar one, lol.

There have been over 11 million 870’s made of all flavors.  I’d find an old police trade-in or beater to make your own.

Short answer No,  in the 90's  a Nashville Gun manufacturing shop got a contract for the from the Federal Prison System to make a special 870 for them (Scattergun Technology)   Remington shipped them 870 Magnum and Police Magnums.   They would then refinish the gun put on slug sights and anything else requested.  Ten or so years later Remington figured we can do the same thing here and cut out middleman and in meantime S T sold out to Wilson,  Wilson went on to sue S T because they fudged how many orders they had at time of sale. Wilson went after the civi market with it.   I have had both and would take the Remington Factory over Wilson. Fist you get the original finish not the Wilson aftermarket finish.   Couple options Buy a Police 870 off GT in Chattannoga or Gunbroker or get a well used 870 and send it to Wilson -see Wilson Steal on their website and for $200-300 returned you have a Wilson.   Older Police 870's were marked  Magnum then Police Magnum and now Police. They sell only to Police Distributors but you can find new or used ones on the market.

Have a Mossberg mdl 500 in 12 Ga. Had a 20 ga Mossy but ordered a long brl and gave it to a grandson to hunt with.  Good shotgun at reasonable price, or once was. I gave 350.00 new for the two I had.
