I've seen it a few times on several posts that some people have used Sportster mufflers for their Wings.
Is there a meaningful advantage to using them?
Would the touring model bikes' (Road King, Glide, Etc) mufflers work as well?
I work at a Harley dealer in Florida, and can usually pic up take-off parts for a fair price.
Could touring model mufflers be an even better option?

Speaking of which, if such parts are desired, let me know and I'll make inquiries in the relevant area. . . ;)

I have seen threads where just about every HD muffler has been used or tried. The only thing that stands out the most is that the mufflers that do not have a cross-over tube hole are better because, obviously, you do not need to worry about plugging that hole.

Also, the early 2000's Sporty mufflers have only a single mount point - instead of the two. Makes it a lot easier to fabricate a bracket.

Ah, ok. Now that you mention it, nearly all of the more recent mufflers have two mounting holes. . .
