No published sn data.The western field model M550ar was made by the firm Mossberg and sons for Montgomery Wards(Western Field) The Mossberg model 500AB is the same shotgun.this shotgun was made from 1962-1998.By being a wards Western Field we may be able to say that the time frame will be between 1962-1985 when Montgomery wards went out of business.

It all depends what model you have. For instance I have a M550AD it is worth about $600. Age also afeects the value. Your best bet is to take it to a gun shop.

I have a Wards Western Field EJN-750 in .243, built on a Sako L57 action, number 3091. I purchased it new at the Montgomery Wards in Albany, NY in 1960. I believe it was manufactured in 1959 or 1960, but been unable to identify who manufactured it for Wards. There was another EJN-750 in .306 on the sale table, but I couldn't afford another $68 for it!

Your question cannot be answered without you providing the model number of your Western Field shotgun.This will be needed to identify what type of shotgun you have and who made this firearm for Montgomery Wards(Western Field).

I can say that the Western field model 740A is the Marlin model 336 lever action rifle that was made for Montgomery Wards(Western Field).These rifles are valued at between 200-300 dollars,depending on the overall condition and a good bore.

While I cannot give you a age for your rifle,I can say that the Western Field(Montgomery Wards) model 740A was made for Montgomery Wards by the Marlin firearms company.The Marlin model 336 and your rifle are one and the same.The value will be between 150-275 dollars depending on overall condition,and a good bore.

Made by Stevens. If it has no serial number, it was made before 1969.

We discovered a Western Field 410 gauge shotgun with bolt action and saw that they were made in the late 40;s and early 50's.

User Avatar

Your western field shotgun was made by mossberg.This mossberg model 500B is not that old having been made from 1962-1998.At this time If you can find out when Montgomery wards went out of busines(house name for western field) and go back to 1962 you will have some idea of the age of your shotgun.

Chances are that you have a Stevens model 94B,that was made for Montgomery wards by Stevens.these shotguns have been made from 1926-1945,in a total amount of 934,000.I hope this might help?

This model is listed in the Blue Book Of Gun Values as the same as a model 520 Savage. The value of Western Field guns is limited to the shooting value of the gun in question

User Avatar

The number that you listed for your Western Field shotgun is the serial number,not the model number.We would need the model number to give you some idea of the age of your shotgun.
