Western Field Model 60 is listed in my cross-reference list as a Savage 620A. But I can't find that Savage model in any of my books. Can you describe it a bit more - single shot, double barrel, pump, bolt action, semi-automatic? Most homeowner's insurance will not need any special coverage for a few thousand dollars worth of firearms, and any Montgomery Ward will be less than a few hundred.
Anonymous - I won't say Ithaca NEVER made any Montgomery Wards guns, but there are none in my list. Give a little more description and I may be able to ID it.
