Default Wards Hercules

I have this old shotgun that I am working on for a friend. It is a Wards Hercules,20ga. I have tried to find out who actually made this shotgun but not having much luck. I have had replies that it is a Iver-Johnson or A Stevens
and even a H&R Topper. None of these fit the make and thereis no model number to go by. I ordered a trigger guard and the forend, but were not the right parts. The forend was a small dove tail. The one I have is a longer snap on piece. So my question is does any one know who made these shotguns and where I might find the parts? I tried Gunparts with no luck. Jack First was no help either. All I have is the serial number to go buy.

Well if it's a Mongomery Wards, Wards then it was made by all of those companies at different times, kind of like the Eddystone, Winchester, Remington 1917 30-06. It really doesn't matter though, the parts are pretty much interchangable.

Edit, I just saw you are trying to figure out the model number. Post some pics and I'll help you search.
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."
