Looks like yours, based on the serial number, may have been manufactured by Browning as the possibly the 304'th made in 1953. I don't think that Sears made a great deal of the 30-30 because the 30-06 was more popular in the model 53. My brother has the same model 30-30 as you with the serial number 28553, and we had been wondering if the last two numbers were idicative of manufacture date. I am still assuming that they are, until somebody shows me otherwise. The gun also has a side mounted scope so that he can use scope or sights. You can contact me at www.24hourcampfire.com as John99c. There is a good message board there with plenty of gun experts, many of which are collectors and gunsmiths. A Sears stock number beginning with 273, not Z73, indicates manufacture by Winchester. Both the Model 54 and #273.81 cross reference to Winchester 94. The Sears Model 53 is a Winchester 70, a bolt-action not even remotely similar to a Winchester 94 lever-action. I have no idea what the 28553 is. It may actually be a serial number, but there should be a 273.--- number on this rifle too.
I believe that your Sears shotgun is a Winchester model 37A shotgun that was made for Sears Roebuck And Co,.
Buy listing the serial number in the question you have asked.
I can say that a sears model 54 was produced by Winchester.The model is a Winchester model 1894.I may help more but your listing of another model number and serial number is confusing.There should be only one model number and one serial number.Please check your numbers again and I may be able to help you more.
I am pretty sure Sears made the Sears Roebuck model number you are asking about. You should only have 2 questions here not 3. The Model 54 was made by Winchester. It is a post - 1964 copy of the Winchester Model 94. You can see the store brand cross reference information at Numrich gun parts website.
Mossberg,Browning and Winchester are 3 possibles- but contact me with the MODEL number from the rifle, and we can tell.

WikiAnswers does not give out personal information about celebrities and non celebrities alike.
The number you are referring to is not the serial number. That number is the catalog number for Sears & Roebuck. The serial number is on the bottom of the rifle. V147XXX (example). These guns are essentially a Winchester 94 made for Sears & Roebuck Company produced between 1964 through 1978. There are no records available to confirm the exact year it was produced. Hope this helps.
