Hi Don..........welcome to TFF.
Well, of course, Monkey Ward didn't make guns, but had established gun makers make them with the M-W label.
Does it have a M-W catalog number or model number on it? From that we may be able to give you the manufacturer and their model equivalent.
So, please give us all of the writing on it, exactly
as it appears.
Also, check the gun over and see if it has any proof marks.....check the water table when you break the gun open, or sometimes they're under the forestock.
