Like to find a value, year, make and model/history etc... on a westernfield montgomery ward 12 ga pump 32" full choke barrel. ser# 43312 with a B an inch or so behind # on hand grip, it seems to be a older gun. There is no chips on grips but some small scratches on stock. The metel needs blueing but no pitting or even surface rust. The owner must have kept decent care of the gun over the years, I dont think it is worth very much, but I am curious on the year it was made and the value and history. It was made on a browning patent, there is no model # but does have a bird dog pointing in a field on the action. The wood is a hard wood with regular checkering. That is the best discription I can give you. Thank You. Please Email me or pot a reply.

Ok not much to work with so lets go at this bit by bit .

Is the reciever built similar to modern shotguns ? meaning , looking from the side does it go frm the barrel to the stock in a smooth sweeping motion? or is there a "saddle" (dip) to it? or does it go straight back and then drop off sharply?

the engraving pattern rings a bell but i can't put my thumb on it yet..

It has the saddle. If I can I will try to get some pics on here, if it is possible. and if I can figure it out. I was hoping the ser # would help.

These guns generally bring $100 to $150 at auction, depending upon condition.

this pic isn't too good but does it resemble it?
