Steve- welcome to the forum- when you get a minute, stop by the intro section and say hello.
Your rifle SHOULD be a Mossberg Model 26B, made for Montgomery Wards stores, and marked with their house trademark (Westernfield) These were made from 1938-1941. Very good little target rifles. SHOULD look something like this-
If yours does not look anything like that, PLEASE get a picture up here.
