The number that you listed for your Western Field shotgun is the serial number,not the model number.We would need the model number to give you some idea of the age of your shotgun.
with a hacksaw
The western field model 172B was made for Montgomery Wards(Western Field) by the firm Mossberg and sons.The Mossberg model 395K and your shotgun are one and the same.The Mossberg model 395K was made from 1963-1983.
Your western field shotgun was made by mossberg.This mossberg model 500B is not that old having been made from 1962-1998.At this time If you can find out when Montgomery wards went out of busines(house name for western field) and go back to 1962 you will have some idea of the age of your shotgun.
I just got a western field 410 shotgun and wondering the value of It
You will need to list the model number of your western Field shotgun,and then I can cross reference the model number to the maker of your shotgun.
Your shotgun was made for montgomery wards hence the name western field,by stevens.The model designation for your shotgun from stevens was the model 520.These stevens model 520 shotguns were made from 1912-1932 with a total production of 191,000 guns.
We discovered a Western Field 410 gauge shotgun with bolt action and saw that they were made in the late 40;s and early 50's.
