Did the description fit your Wards gun? If so, try to find a copy of Standard Catalog of Firearms and compare it to the pictures. Both Wards and Sears contracted with several manufacturers for guns marked with their various trade names. There are a lot of Winchesters in the Sears cross-reference list. I've never seen a good list for Wards, Penneys, or Speigel, but I'm sure there will be a few Winnies there too. forwhat… Read More

I have a Winchester Model 240W Westernfield "12 ga." (not 20ga.) shotgun. It was a knockoff of the Winchester model 1400, made for Montgomery Wards. I've seen them sell anywhere between $200 and $250 depending on condition.
I suggest you get a magnifier and relook the model number. It is probably a 30-SB562A. I have one that I would not part with. I was told that it was probably 80 years old but that does not square with what I have read in other entries at this site.
