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.

*WHACK*

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.

*WHACK*

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.

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!

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
firearms maker.

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.

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
