I have a bolt action 6 shot 16ga. I paid $65 for it at a pawn shop. It has seen moderate use and remains a well functioning, useable gun. I have seen them in pristine condition for $100 at the most. It really depends on the model such as 583 1 to 583 25 were what are refered to a the Sears model 10 these guns espcially one 583 1 to 583 13 in good or better cond are twice what the later series 583 14 to 583 25 wich on average of 100.bucks However if your JC Higgins is 585 1100 583 1101 or 583 1102 the much improved Sears model 11 they will fetch more 125 bucks or more I would also like to add that sears has enacted a voluntary recall on all the JC Hggis 12 and 16 gauge bolt action shotguns. It seems that the pin that keeps the bolt from flying out can loosen and fall off. Thus when the shooter fires the gun, he's hit with the bolt HARD. They will give you a 50 dollar giftcard for sending them the bolt of the gun. Thus rendering the gun inoperable. You can keep everything else.

16 gauge - smaller selection of ammunition , Higgins - Sears tradename, Bolt -not a popular action. 3 strikes. Top value $125 if in nearly-new condition. More likely to bring $50-$75.

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