You recommended getting a 870 police, yet you sold your father's Wingmaster? Why? If you didn't like how it was configured, you can change it. Take the wood stock off and store it away, and put on a speedfeed stock and whatever forend you like, if you want it set up that way.
The only thing the newer 870 police offers over an older Wingmaster is the flexi tab, and to me that is not enough to bypass the older Wingmasters.
