I've got a 1950s Wingmaster in 20 gauge that I at the age of 16 (6 years ago) in/under the influence of my meaning well grandfather and the man who left it to me, my grandfather's best friend/my godfather had it drilled and tapped for a Simmons shotgun scope. The functional intent was to use this (my first shotgun) as a deer gun. It shoots quite well with Super X slugs out of the improved cylinder barrel, but I've been thinking about getting a rifled barrel for it and outside of deer season, shooting trap with it.

Will a new Remington rifled barrel fit on this, or should I continue to use the Imp. barrel? I went down to a local gun shop and the owner was kind enough to let me try a 20 gauge rifled 870 (believe it was an express model) barrel, but it would not fit. Do they even make a rifled barrel for the Wingmaster, as it's name, I assume was the primary purpose.
