What year or years was this shotgun made?

Marked on barrel::

Western Field
model M175B 20 GA C-LECT CHOKE
chambered for 2 3/4 and 3 in shells
Made in USA

There are no other markings except for a small "p" in a circle at the base
of the barrel. The serial # is 835421

Thanks,
Carl

Carl, your Western Field (Montgomery Wards)Model 175 shotgun is the same as the Mossberg Model 385K which was manufactured from about 1963-1983. Hope this helps!
