While WesternField was a trade name used by Montgomery Ward there is also evidence there was a Western Field trade name used by Iver Johnson for a ribbed model of their Champion series.
Dan - Any model number marked on the gun? It is probably a Stevens 311 (or one of about 60 other Stevens models that are all so similar most reference books don't bother to separate them). If fully functioning and not totally beat up, should bring about $200-$250 retail.
William - Again, without a model number, I have to guess, but I suspect your gun is a re-branded Mossberg 500. Look in the yellow pages for a gunsmith.AnswerThe western field shotguns were made mainly by Stevens and a couple other com. If you go to the gun parts corp. web site they have a cross referance by model number to the orignal man. they also carry many parts for them. Answer

Ithaca did not make any Wards Western Field Shotguns.

Western Field was Montgomery Wards' house brand for their sporting goods/firearms. The M550A; B; C and ABD was made by O.F. Mossberg & Sons. It is essentially a Mossberg M500 shotgun.
