From what I'm told the Model 50 is the same as a Savage Model 311.

I'm not sure of the value of your shotgun. I have a Montgomery Wards Hercules, double barrel shotgun, with external hammers. With all the research I have done it is a Stevens 217. I have been looking for a set of barrels for this gun. Can you describe your gun to me. Petter



$200-$250 in top condition. Only value is as a shooter, they are not collectible.


Savage/Stevens Model 5000 very much a model 311


when was the model 10 hercules 410 shot gun manufactured




The guns Hercules guns made by Stevens and sold by Wards were made around 1910 to 1940


Serial numbers were not required on rifles and shotguns until 1968.


Manufactured by Iver Johnson or J. Stevens for Montgomery Wards.


Chances are your shotgun was made by savage/stevens for the montgomery wards company.


We cant verify the SD108 model number, however: The "Hercules" was the trade name used by the Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works on shotguns made for the Montgomery Ward Co. Of Chicago. The "Hercules" made for Wards was a copy of the Iver Johnson "Champion" model which is a single shot shotgun with exposed hammer. They were made between 1909 and 1956.



Wards sold single shot and double barrel IJ shotguns under the tradename of Hercules.


Mossberg made the Wards model 550cd. In fact, they made all of the 500 series shotguns sold by Wards. lcj


Manufactured by Stevens Arms, 1931-1941. Montgomery Wards. Hercules was just their name for this model.



I have a Wards Hercules 16ga model 10. Mine is in excellent condition and only worth $150.00. For that it worth just hanging on to.


Wards Brewing Company was created in 1837.


Your shotgun was made by Mossberg for the Montgomery Wards Company(Westernfield).The Mossberg model 500ab is the same shotgun as yours.


Surely there are more markings on the gun. I can find a similar number on a Western Field (Montgomery Wards) double barrel shotgun which makes me suspect that it is Stevens/Savage 311 re-branded for Wards. This model designation was used after 1948.


Montgomery Wards did not make guns, they were made by various companies like Mossberg, Savage, Stevens and Hi Standard. Who made guns /shotguns for JC Penney, Sears, and Western Auto along with guns for Wards. The brand name were put on the guns for the stores to sell. Take the Shotgun to a gun shop and get it identified first to find out who made it.


Wards Hercules 410 was made by different manufacturers through out it's history. The early models from the 1920's had no model number just "PROOF TESTED 410 GAUGE" stamped on the left side and "SELECTED FORGED STEEL" stamped on the right side of the barrel. Model numbers were stamped on later guns. They usually don't fetch much $$
