Look at the top of this forum page for the MFG-Store brand name conversion tables. There are several links listed that may be of help. \n The big dept. stores contracted w\/major gun MFG to make guns that are usually a close or exact "copy" of the the models made by the MFG under thier own name. I believe Mossberg made alot of Wards Westernfield guns, so check the Mossberg forum links also. But depending on the age of the rifle, it could possibly be a Springfield or a Stevens. Firms that were also heavily involved in store brand MFG. In fact nearly EVERY gun MFG had a store brand equivilent at some point.
