Bolt action shotguns in usable condition will retail for $100 - $125. They could have been made anytime from 1908 to 1960. With the rest of the markings on the gun, we might be able to identify the actual manufacturer's model number and determine a range of dates when that model was produced.

In very good-excellent condition, these will top out at $125 or so. Bolt-action 20ga shotguns are not in great demand. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Bolt-action 20ga shotguns such as the Higgins (which was made by High Standard and is basically the same as their Model 11) generally sell for $100-$150. www.countrygunsmith.net

Your bolt action shotgun was made for Sears Roebuck by the High Standard Company, and is the HS Model 514.1400. Depending on condition, these sell for around $85 or so. They are durable reliable shotguns- just not a lot of collector appeal.

The JC Higgins 583.24 is a bolt-action shotgun made by High Standard for Sears in 1954/1955. It should have an adjustable choke. Value on bolt-action shotguns is minimal, around $100-$125.

its a bolt action and they are worth about 150.00 or so in good condition

$150 on a good day. Bolt action shotguns aren't all that popular.

This is actually the Stevens 39A/59A, a bolt action utility shotgun generally valued at $125 in excellent condition. You might get $150 to $200 because of the box.

It was built with a commercial 98 Mauser action.

The JC Higgins Model 20 was a slide-action shotgun made for Sears by High Standard. Value, depending on condition, can range from $100-$225.

I do not have a cross reference for THAT model number, but many (not all) of the JC Higgins bolt action shotguns were made by Mossberg. Check with Havlin Sales through their website- they are my "go-to" supplier for anything with older Mossberg guns.

Depending upon condition - high $150, low $65. Bolt action 410 bore shotguns are not very popular at this time.

The JC Higgins 12 gauge pump action shotgun, model 20-1264 583.55 is valued at $175 in excellent condition. In fair condition, it is valued at $90.

User Avatar

Depending on condition, about $85-90. These were in production only a short time, and there is not a high demand for bolt action shotguns.

The gun was made by High Standard for Sears from the late 1950's into the 1960's. In excellent condition in its original box, it might bring $200-$250.

There is no serial number list. They can be identified by the Sears product number stamped on the barrel. The numbers on the defective guns are: 583.13, 583.14, 583.15, 583.16, 583.17, 583.18, 583.19, 583.20, 583.21 and 583.22. The shotguns were sold in Sears stores and through its catalog as the "J.C. Higgins Bolt Action 12-Gauge Model 10 Shotgun" during the 1950s.

There ARE bolt action shotguns and handguns, such as the Mossberg 183 or the Remington XP-100- but they are not common. Lever action shotguns and handguns are also pretty rare.

User Avatar

$200-$250 in excellent condition, $150-$200 in typical used condition. These were the first gas-operated semiauto shotguns produced, made by High Standard for Sears. Be careful with the action bar, that is the most often broken part on these guns and nearly impossible to find a replacement. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Lever action, pump action, semi-automatic, etc.

It probably doesn't have one. Serial numbers were not required before 1968 (the JC Higgins name was discontinued in 1961) and few manufacturers serialized their small caliber rifles and shotguns.
