Me and my dad just got this old rifle and all I know is what is in the pictures. Any info helps.
It's more than likely a store brand Montgomery Wards, probably made by Mossberg. Is it a 22lr?
This might help you get closer to what it is;
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.
It's ejn 757 and I as looking it up on the Internet and it says it built on a mouser action?
Look at this: http://www.gunsinternational.com/Ward-s-Western-Field-Fabrique-Nationale-30-06.cfm?gun_id=100241143
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.
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.
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.
I think it's a Mauser based action made by FN.
Wierd rifle? I'll send you $100.00 and it can join my Wierd rifles. Nice Mauser built by FN. Nice large ring Mauser. Could be a 7x57. Should be .30-06.
Here are other Mausers, Mousers are cats!
Looks like a jc higgens model 51 they was made off the muaser action and was chambered in 270 and 30-06
Sorry about that its ejn 757
It's a commercial mauser action built by FN in Belgium. Apparently they
were barrelled and stocked in the states specifically for Wards (there
was also a Sears version). Unlike most "house brand" guns, there is not
a direct crossover to any particular model manufactured by a regular
Ward's "Western Field' ( Fabrique Nationale),EJN-757 "Deluxe Mauser",.30-06,22" bbl.,7lb. 8 oz.,14 3/8" L.O.P. 90%
Golden State Arms (California) imported rifles built on FN and Sako actions for Montgomery Ward with the Western Field Logo. That is not a typical Mossberg bolt or stock.
I deleted my last post. The stupidity here amazes me. I'm sure some were not born yesterday. IT IS A FN LARGE RING MAUSER< IT WAS FULLY BUILT IN BELGUIM>
Maybe. I've seen some references that say the actions were imported,
and they were barrelled/stocked right here in the USA.
OP---What does it have on it for proof marks? If it was a barrelled
action or complete gun imported from FN, there should be Belgian
proof marks on both the barrel and action.
Nope the only proof mark is on the action
