Guns, Firearms, Projectile Weapon Sports/.22 rifle


My grand father gave me this---Wards Western Field No 41. .22

Can u provide the year(s) of manufacture and which mfr made
it for Wards?  Mike


Based upon the information provided I am of the opinion that it was made by Mossberg between 1935 to 1937. If the firearm is in "fair" condition it would be worth approximately $125 to $150. Of course, with your Grandfather giving it to you.... who can put a price on it?

I hope this helps Mike and thanks for the question.

I can answer questions concerning hand guns, rifles, shotguns and related ammo and ballistics questions. I cannot answer questions concerning paint-ball, airguns, etc. Also any questions related to hunting and/or related firearm useage can be answered. If asking about gun history and/or values please limit your question about one gun at a time. I limit the number of questions to five a day (so I have time to respond to all) and it defeats that purpose if I'm being ask about a half dozen guns or more in just "one" question.
