I'm not sure of the value of your shotgun. I have a Montgomery Wards Hercules, double barrel shotgun, with external hammers. With all the research I have done it is a Stevens 217. I have been looking for a set of barrels for this gun. Can you describe your gun to me. Petter
I have a 16 gauge double barrel for sale.
The guns Hercules guns made by Stevens and sold by Wards were made around 1910 to 1940
50-100 or so
when was the model 10 hercules 410 shot gun manufactured
I would guess it was made by Stevens.
From what I'm told the Model 50 is the same as a Savage Model 311.
Wards sold single shot and double barrel IJ shotguns under the tradename of Hercules.
Manufactured by Stevens Arms, 1931-1941. Montgomery Wards. Hercules was just their name for this model.
Serial numbers were not required on rifles and shotguns until 1968.
Manufactured by Iver Johnson or J. Stevens for Montgomery Wards.
