Any idea what year this add is from? How times have changed.
mid 30's to mid 40's. I just got a model 85 today from a guy I work with........found the ad while doing research on the rifle!
Seems in a way I own a bit of Stevens history! My stevens 67 E-Series is NOT a .22 but it is a STEVENS! And I love the Ad for the Model 85 and 87!
is a Ward's Western Field that was produced by Stevens for Montgomery Wards through the 30's and 40's. Friend I work with wife doesn't like guns and wanted him to get rid of it, so he told me I could have it!
Time for a new wife.
it put a new gun in my safe for free!
Sounds like a nice aquisition.
I did have a Wards Hercules Model 10 but I gave it away to a friend. It was a junker so my buddy has it as a project. Will he fix it now I couldnt swear to it.
As for giving you the .22 I say thats as awesome as one day can get!
might sand it down and refinish it, not sure though. How are things going Vaq?
That's ok, glad to have it. I spent most of midday cussing the front that blew through. Not bad outside now though.
How's the beer business?
GOD Bless Texas!!!
Beer: Slow till Spring from what I hear, but had a busy weekend.......the Race maybe!?!
Yep, you'll be running till ya drop that week!
I am thinking on getting a custom Furniture made for my Marlin. Something in the sniper looks. I nicked named my marlin the squirrel Sniper rifle so I think furniture with a pistol grip and stock setup would make it look very nice.
Check Ya Later!
Enjoy ya supper!
