Your western field model 32 is actually a mossberg model 20 or model 21.The mossberg model 20,21 was made by mossberg between the years 1933-1938,for the montgomery wards stores(western field brand name).
All of the Wards SB model shotguns in my cross reference have a number with the letters. Please check your model number closely, and repost your question.

The Western Field model 41 was made for Montgomery Wards by Mossberg and was the Mossberg model 45 . The model 45 was made from 1935 to 1937 and some minor improvements were made in the model in 1937 and was labeled as the model 45A. I believe the last 45A was made in 1938 so most likely all Western Field model 41s were made between 1935-38.
Your Western field model 31 .22cal rifle was made by Mossberg for the Montgomery Wards Company(Western Field).The Mossberg model 40 is the same firearm.The mossberg model 40 was made between the years 1933-1935.
The Western Field model 36 .22 rifle was a Montgomery Wards branded Mossberg model 10 or Stevens (Savage) model 52b. Both were sold as Western Field model 36s. These date to the mid-1930s.
Should be a version of the Marlin 336. Wards sold the Marlin under the Western Field brand name through the 1960's until they switched to Mossberg in 1971.I've found that the Western Field Model 33A was made by Noble.
