Jhoth, my cross reference list doesn't show a Western Field 240 nor any gun made for Western Field by Winchester. I'm going to move your question to Harley's Research Page. He may have an answer for you. George

Ihave researched both Winchester, and any company begining with W and can find no such model number. As George indicated, Winchester did not make a shotgun forWestern Field.

In addition, I have checked my Stock cross reference and find neither Winchester or Western Field with that model number. Posibly you may have incorrectly read the number or mfg.

If you have a picture, maybe we could figure it out.

I;m not sure of the Mfg. date
But I am sure it's a Winchester
Made for Montgomery Wards

12ga 2 3/4" ribbed barrel semi/auto w/removable chokes
It came with 3 Chokes (Skeet, Mod & Full)

It's a very nice shotgun
I have 2 of them an oldie but goodie and one in mint shape with box and paperwork.

Under the hand grip it should have the
Winchester Repeating Logo
and on the recoil pad.

Hope this helps everyone

I can't find anything either. The vast majority of Western Field guns were made by Mossberg with a goodly number of Savage/Stevens in second place. No Winchesters. Same with Wards. The only store brand I can find that Winchester supplied to was Sears. Winchester 2400 maybe?

If you could post a photo that would be a great help.

I sincerely doubt it Mr. Hoth is going to post anything.

Last time he was active was almost 8 years ago.
