It's more than likely a store brand Montgomery Wards, probably made by Mossberg. Is it a 22lr?

If I'm not mistaken it should be marked
.22 s l lr

No it's a 30-06. That's what it says on the barrel at least. Sorry for the crummy pics.

Same deal, Monkey Wards store brand. Probably a Mossberg 800 ot 810 or a Fabrique Nationale. What all do you want to know about it? What is thew model number, couldn't quite make it out.

97,

That is definitely a Mauser Action no doubt! Also here is additional information that might also be interesting to you.
Let us know what you find out!

Please hold very still so I can whack you. *WHACK*

No matter how much I blow up the pic, I cannot read the MODEL NUMBER on the rifle . Thi was made for Montgomery Ward using their store brand. I have a couple of cross reference tables BUT NEED THE MODEL NUMBER.

*WHACK*

They were made by several makers, including Mauser- and that one looks as if it COULD be a Mauser- but we need the model number. It is right under the Westernfield brand.

*WHACK*

EDIT: You posted the model number while I was searching. THAT is a Colt Model 57. Made by FN (Fabrique National) using the Mauser pattern bolt.
