I pulled the action and barrel out of the stock, the only markings i can find are Wards Western Field on the action, and on the barrel next to the rear sight, it says 22 short long or long rifle, and on the barrel next to the action it has a circle with 18 inside of the circle

Montgumery Ward.
Looks like an old Rem nock off or Win nock off, but I don't think Win was clip fed. Pretty sure Win was an old single shot, loaded 1 at a time, & the safety was on the back of the fireing pin in the form of a "tab, or leaf" if you will. Give me a week, & ill go to my grandmas & look at my old Win & letcha know.
Ok, back to yours...
Sears & Robuck use to sell all kinds of firearms. Usually built by lesser known companys using a larger known companys design. Look at Stevens, or Mossberg, they liscenced, & farmed out all kinds of shotguns, & rilfes etc for Sears.
Montgumery Ward would be my guess.

Just pulled my Model 4 out of the safe and I'm dead certain now that you have a model 4
Triggerguard, cocking piece, and mag well cover are identical. Also mine also has the circled 18 stamped on the barrel just in front of the receiver.
not saying you are right or wrong....

A lot of the Wards Westernfields were mae by Savage/ Stevens. I have a Wards Westerfiels modle 37 I am working on that is actually the same parts as a modle 560 savage / stevens. It looks alot like your rifle except my stock it different.
