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 old 12 guage double barell shotgun name is wards triumph model 5052a


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.


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.


Your Western Field model SB-312 double barrel shotgun was made for Montgomery Wards(western field) by the savage arms company.The Savage model 540D shotgun is the same shotgun as yours.If you go to the savage web site they may have more info on this model?


Probably not a lot. There are manufacturer's names in firearms that make heads bow - Montgomery Wards is not one of them. They didn't make it, of course, there was no "Montgomery Wards Firearms Factory", they were made for Wards by one of the big manufacturers, most likely Savage, but if it's a really top-end one, possibly Parker. In the end, it is worth what you can get for it.




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.


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


I have been to many gun show's and found one in 16 gauge! Other than that I have not heard of any listed, or viewed at gunshop's near me! They were made in the 1930's- and stopped in the 1950's! A short run anyway?


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 $$


If you really want the Monkey Wards gun, you may have to look for quite a while, but I think if you get into any fair-sized city you should be able to find a Stevens or Springfield at a pawn shop or sporting goods store. You can also search the internet auction sites like Gunbroker and classifieds at Shotgun World.
