I’m trying to locate my grandfathers long Tom (Montgomery Ward), 36” barrel, which was sold at “Shooters Supply” back in 1996. It has a long scar on the single shot barrel (break open) as my grandfather dropped it while plowing and ran over it. I am willing to pay a generous “finders fee” for its return. I’d really like to keep it in my family. Please call or text 208.315.2669 if you have any leads or info. Gratefully, Matt

I hope you find the owner. Those are cool guns. Bolt action with a detachable mag, right?

My bro has one from back in the day, early 90's or late 80's even.   12ga bolt with detachable mag and that loooooong barrel. 

I hope he's keeping it rust free, I think it'll be a collectors item. 


I always told him he needed that long barrel to swat the geese out of the air cause he certainly couldn't shoot them  :chuckle:

Can you give us an idea where it was lost at? I see you're in Yakima, so I doubt it's here on the west side but you never know.

Yes, it was sold at "Shooter's Supply" in Yakima in the mid 90's.  Thank you!!!  Matt
