Hi-
The gold braze bead is visible between the receiver and magazine tube on my 25 year old 870 express magnum receiver.  Does this indicate that the finish is parkerized?  I am doing a riot build using a new 18.5 in bbl with ball detent ,  part F242247, and noticed that the bead line is not visible under the sight base or barrel ring as it is bead blast blue.
Thanks -Joe

Nice KISS and Deadly build.   I give it the AI&P Tactical "Two Thumbs and a Pecker Straight Up" Award.

Basic weapons are easier and faster to deploy and can safe your life.

I did some digging and maybe this gun was one of the special purpose guns designed for waterfowling and turkey shooting?  Does anyone know how the PS guns were marked on the receiver? This one is just express magnum.

They were not marked.  Simply Express Models.
