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

The XNH-565 was made by Noble it is a 60 series shotgun and not many were made, this gun would be near the end of Westerfield's production.

Ithaca did not make any Wards Western Field Shotguns. Most were made by Stevens/Savage or Mossberg.Western Field, the Montgomery Ward brand name, should not be confused with Western Arms Company, a division of Ithaca that made shotguns that appear identical to Ithaca's Lefever Nitro Special from 1929 to 1946.

Remington private labelled some Sportsman 58 shotguns for Wards under the Western Field name, also Savage, and I believe Wards may have arranged for some Italian guns - possibly Breda. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Pretty sure it was Mossberg. Take a look at a list of Mossberg shotguns. I'm sure you will find one that looks like your Western Field.

No. There never was a Western Field company. That was a trade name owned by Montgomery Wards and the guns were made by a variety of manufacturers including Stevens/Savage, Winchester, Mossberg, and others.

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. They also made shotguns for Sears Roebuck under the J.C. Higgins housebrand and later the Ted Williams brand -- as well as shotguns for Western Auto under the Revalation brand.

Most likely Mossberg made your shotgun,but I cannot be sure unless you give the model number of your Wards shotgun.

That would be a Stevens/Savage 315 with a Montgomery Ward name.

Most were made by Savage (including Stevens and Springfield) or Mossberg, a few by Noble. Many gun price books and gunparts vendors have crossover lists for model numbers.
