Default wards western field 46d

hello folks. hope this is the correct place for this. when i was a kid, (many years ago) my dad gave me this wards western field 46d .22. im just looking for some history on it. i use it often shooting ground squirells here in eastern oregon out of our alfalfa. love it. front sight is bent. some day ill get it bent back close, but i just know about where it hits. lol. would just like to find some history on who actually made it. i was told mossburg?? how hard is it to find another mag for it? mine is only a 5 round. are there bigger mags? when were they built? you know, any history i can, and where i can get parts for it. eh, so the stock is cracked, and faded on one side from seeing the sun for years. barrel is pitted on the outside. still shoots awsome!!! is there any kind of trigger adjustment to these? im big into the weatherby mkv's and have hair triggers on them. same with my remington. this trigger is HEAVY to me. thanks for any knolege.

It's a Mossberg 42C made from 1938-1941. No higher capacity mags, no trigger adjustments, no aftermarket parts. It is what it is. Numrich may have original parts in stock. www.e-gunparts.com

You will find a 7 round mag and a 15 round mag. They probably have a stock. Give them a call they are great to talk to and very helpful.
