I believe it is so you can fire it as a one shot it keeps the next shell from coming out of the tube, you can load another shell by hand.... You are absolutely correct! Not all Mod 20's have that selector but that is what it is for. It prevents another shell from loading into the chamber when the action is moved.

I was at a gun show in TX (Jul 2010) and was offered $125 for my JC Higgins Model 20-12; however, that was a dealer.

It will not be easy to find a manual for a JCS Higgins 20 gauge bolt action model 583.15 shotgun. The company, JC Higgins is no longer around and has been replaced by the company, Ted Williams. The company, Ted Williams may be able to help someone find a similar model manual.
