The value depends mostly on condition and what the gun actually is. Wards sold guns which were manufactured by several companies and generally sold the cheaper "plain Jane" versions. Their used value is not more than a few hundred dollars down.

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

I have the same, purchased by my Grandpa and having been in my family since new. Upon giving me the shotgun, my Mother consulted a gun dealer and he put the value at only $75 for it's good, very little rust, and still shootable condition. With this low of a value, she gave it to me to keep passing on as a family piece rather than sell. Have you found anything out somewhere else? Thanks! That dealer was right. Although it is a good solid firearm, it's just another Stevens single shot wearing a suit from Montgomery Wards. If it's a 410, it might bring a little more, but for less than $100 you can get a similar gun with a manufacturer's warrantee.



Blue Book of Gun Values. IIRC, sold by Montgomery Wards and made by Mossberg


There were several companies who made Montgomery Wards guns but most of them were made by Mossberg or Savage. Either way, if the gun is in reasonable & shot able condition, it is worth between $100.00 & 150.00 to a dealer.


You can find store brand charts in the Blue Book of Gun Values


Montgomery Wards contracted Mossberg to manufacture many of the Western Field guns. Western Field model 15 is actually a Mossberg model 80. While it is not known the years that Mossberg shipped these guns to Montgomery Wards, it is known that Mossberg produced the model 80 gun between 1933 and 1946.


If its in good condition and the barrel has not been cut or the stock shortened, it worth between 150 and 300. Obviously the high side would be a gun in the 90% range in terms of metal and wood condition and finish.



I would seriously start my search at numrich gun parts corp.your gun is a model 60 glenfield that was made for montgomery wards by marlin/glenfield.


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


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.

I have a 16 ga. Wards Hercules. Originally marketed and sold as a utility gun. My 16 dates to the '40's. It is like brand new. I have done a lot of looking into this question of value and all the answers come back as $100-$150 if in excellent condition. I wouldn't let mine go for less than $400.00, again, it is like brand new. So, all experts say keep it. You would have a difficult time replacing it so i have to agree. Keep it or pass it down.


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


Montgomery Wards never made guns of rifles. They contracted several gun manufactures to make guns and rifles for them using the Wards brand name. This is the same for Sears and Western auto. All of them stopped selling guns around 1988 due to social pressure.


Hawthorne brand air guns were all made by Crosman air gun company for Montgomery Wards. Check their web page. They offer a free service to locate shops that repair older Crosman products.
