I want to improve the question. can interchange be accomplished in both westernfield 550abd and 550ad
Mossberg and sons is the manufacturer of your western field model M550ABD,shotgun.The Mossberg model 500 is the same shotgun.
as far as i know yes, i have seen both receiver ends of both barrels and they are almost identical
Pretty sure it was Mossberg. Take a look at a list of Mossberg shotguns. I'm sure you will find one that looks like your Western Field.
I THINK that was is a Mossberg. The WesternField model m550ABD Is in fact a Mossberg Model 500. I am a proud owner of one, which every member of my family has hunted with. This gun will accept mossberg barrels, and retains amazing accuracy and reliability.
The Western Field 550 series were produced by Mossberg for Montgomery Ward. Basically it's a Mossberg 500 and as far as my research and experience with them goes (I own a 550AB in 12 GA and a 550ED in 410 GA), all parts are interchangeable though I've only ever put a Mossberg barrel on my Western Field.
This should be a Mossberg 500 in a Montgomery Wards suit. Check any dealer for the availability of a slug barrel.
western field is/was a mossberg company
The shotgun is a Mossberg 500. The Standard Catalog lists this at $200 in Very Good condition. Deduct 20-30% for having a Montgomery Ward name stamped on it.
The 12 gauge pump Western Field shotgun, M550ABD with a c-lect choke is valued at $200 in good condition. It is valued at $100 in fair condition.
Your Western Field model 768 was made by mossberg for the Mongomery Wards company(Western Field).The mossberg model 800A is the same rifle as yours.
Mossberg for Montgomery Wards it is the mossberg 800a
