The barrel is blued and the shotgun has a plain walnut one piece pistol grip stock and forearm. Approximate weight of the gun is 5 1/2 pounds. This is all the information I could come up with.

The J.C. Higgins 101.25 is worth from around $75 to $125. They were made by savage/stevens, model[s] 39A,59A,B, & C... Also note that the 101.25 is a repeating, tube fed, bolt-action .410 shotgun, [NOT a 30'06 rifle], made in the 40's-50's. It is strongly advise against using 30'06 in this firearm, as serious injury/damage/death can result.

Contact Marlin by phone, give them your serial # and they can tell you when it was made and where.
Type "e-gunparts" or "Numrich Gun Parts" into google [etc] and they sould have most parts you may need, [I have one of these and they are great, very accurate].
