Unable to answer as asked. Is it already a shotgun or will it be built from a virgin receiver?
On top of the receiver, just behind the barrel, there's the release button. Slide it forward and the barrel should open up from the receiver, hinging near the bottom rear of the forearm. This is a single shot shotgun, so you can only put in 1 round at a time.
I believe this is a Boito Era single barrel shotgun. Made 20-25 years ago. A cheap disposable shotgun. A lot of the parts are not hardened.
I would need to know the model number of your shotgun to help you with your question.
ABOUT $50 TO $75 IF VERY CLEAN
Before 1930. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have one. Case hardened receiver, solid rib. Interestingly, in looking a the single trigger, there is a slot next to it (underside of receiver)which contains a piece of metal which does not protrude below the receiver. It's as if it was a double trigger converted to single trigger. I have no idea. It was made before 1948. I use it to this day, got four chuckars just yesterday. It just puzzles me. The side of the receiver says Stevens and next to it "model 5000" and it has an engraving of a pointer on the receiver as well. ????
The Western Field shotgun was sold by Montgomery Ward and made by Mossberg. Made around 1964. I inherited one that is in mint condition and still fires. It is a 410 single barrel 150c shotgun.
The water table is the part of the receiver that the barrels of a double barrel or single shot break-action shotgun rest on.
Western field 12 gauge single shot shotgun serial #82719 x G...age and value/
Do you by chance have the receiver, I need the screws on the side of this gun ? Rick
Many manufacturers used the same receiver for different gauges. H&R, for example, used the same receiver in the Topper series for everything from .410 through 12ga. email@example.com
Yes, it's a bolt-action 410 gauge shotgun.
A" designates single shot.
Your Western Field shotgun has a value of between 35-90 dollars.
Proofhouse.com has a store brand chart.
$25 to $75. Could break $100 if it is in absolutely like-new condition.
100 USD is about the maximum.
1901 single barrel shotgun, washingtion
Manufactured between 1886 and 1916.
Probably sold by Sears Roebuck c. 1920-1945.
Many early ones may not have a serial number. If they do, it will most likely be on the side of the receiver. There is a small chance it will be inside, after you remove the barrel.
I have a similar gun 12 g single with hammer style Western Arms Co,,,, from my grandfathers serial # JX 450 firstname.lastname@example.org email me
In order to answer your question correctly,I would need the maker of the shotgun,shotgun model,and type of shotgun we are talking about(pump action,single shot,semi-auto etc.) I would also need to know what type of barrel you have(plain barrel,solid matte rib,or vent rib barrel).also include the overall condition of your shotgun and amount of blueing remaining on the receiver and barrel.
