JC Higgens never manufactured any guns - Sears bought them from a variety of manufacturers. The best way you could determine if Sears sold such a gun is to find some of the old reprints of their catalogs between 1887 and 1920, which are the years that Winchester was making their 1887 and 1901 "Humpback" lever action shotguns.
