Default Western Field

I have a client's Western field 20 gauge. I am needing a left extractor. I've tried Numerich and Hoosier. Any idea where I can obtain one?

Gunpartscorp and Brownells

I found this online
"Western Field Firearms is the Montgomery Ward store brand of rifles, pistols or shotguns manufactured by Savage Firearms, Steven Arms, Mossberg & Sons or Remington Firearms. The original manufacturer depends on the model and date it was produced."

Westernfield was also sold by western auto. I had one years ago. I shot it so much the firing pin carrier wore out. The hole where the firing pin comes out of the carrier was egg shaped when I got rid of it. Parts from a mossberg 500 fit right in it. I sold it to my cousin who took the parts out of his 500 to restore the westernfield. It was a very good looking gun. It had pheasants being flushed by a dog engraved on one side and deer engraved on the other side, with a nice beech stock.

sorry John- Westernfield was copyrighted to Montgomery Wards- it was THEIR brand. Western Auto had their own- Revelation. Just as Sears had J C Higgins.

To the OP- if you do not give us a model number, there is no way we can tell you who made the blooming shotgun, or where you can get an extractor- they were made for Monkey Wards by a half dozen different companies.

C3 I bought the westernfield NIB from my uncle that owned a western auto. I am not arguing the point that westernfield wasn't montgomery wards brand. He was very enterprising, I also bought a model 70 winchester and the worst purchase I have ever made, a Remington jammaster, ermm, I mean woodsmaster. Really the jammaster was an inexpensive learning experience. I really wanted a BAR and 2 years later I did buy a BAR.

He could have caught the westernfield on sale to resell in his store or he got it as a closeout/discontinued model.

Here is some parts on Ebay. They are 12 gauge but the extractor maybe the same.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Westernfield-Modl-5O-Stevens-Modl-620-Bolt-Slide-Lifter-/121199319768?pt=Vintage_Hunting&hash=item1c380adad 8
If not watch Ebay off and on as new parts are listed daily.
Did you call gunparts as sometimes they only a few parts and don't list them in their catalog but will ship if you call them.

Look here and search for 260 - indicates Western Auto 260 - Savage 170 and others.

I bought this Western Field .308 in 1968 from Montgomery Wards and I still love it. Intend to scope it by/for Christmas

I contacted Hoosier, they are sold out out the left extractor. Is there a main difference between the 620 and the 620a model? Besides the tang and reciever length? Numrich has a left extractor for the 620.
