I am not sure but I have several Kessler shotguns 12, 16 and 20 gauge. If you remove the barrel from the stock. right in front of the trigger assembly. There should be a number like this 10 51, or 2 52. I think the first number is the month and the second is the year. All my Kesslers have a 51, 52 or 53 as the last 2 numbers. So i am guessing the first is the month. I have nothing higher than a 11 for the first. Kesslers in mint condition sell for $125 to $30 dollars according to condition. they were also only made for three years 1951-1953.the company then filed for bankruptcy, and numrich gunparts bought out the leftover parts. these guns were sold mostly in catalogs.

Westernfield was the brand name sold by Montgomery Wards Department Stores but made by contract from other gun makers. Your model was made by Kessler who offered their own model 128FR. It is probably the same gun. Depending on condition, one can be had for about $100.00

Without looking through all 1700 pages of the Blue Book looking for this model number, let's say $100-$150. That's about what almost any utility bolt action 12 gauge will bring.

The value is $40-$150 depending on condition, location, need etc.

Depending on condition, about $85-90. These were in production only a short time, and there is not a high demand for bolt action shotguns.
