Interesting gun. It is the only gun Remington made under the name of a catalog company. It is a 878 (which was a update of the Sportsman 58). Both were short lived. Remington made 63,478 878's and 9,291 Western Fields. The Western Fields were made from 1967 to 1970. With this few sales I guess Remington learned their lesson and didn't try this again.
